If the odds present well that your internal HR team will have a wide network of proven executives for a key position in your organization, go with them.
If you believe the best executive candidates come from a pool of active applicants to a position for which you post, we'd argue the point. Great performers at great companies are treated very well because those companies keep their best people happy - not looking for the next role. If you need someone who knows these individuals, who can understand your company and culture and educate candidates on why they should consider you, even when they are beyond satisfied where they are, call us.
