ON Partners named on Hunt Scanlon’s new roundup of the most prominent executive search firms in HR and Diversity recruiting

March 2021 – ON Partners, the experience-driven retained executive search firm, is proud to be named to the HR and Diversity Power 65 Recruiting list announced by market research firm Hunt Scanlon.  The list encompasses the leading executive search firms specializing in human resources and diversity, equity & inclusion.

As a values-driven executive search firm, ON Partners believes a better experience starts with a more diverse experience. We understand our unique position of influence as executive search consultants, and our responsibility to help increase the number of diverse executives in business in collaboration with our ON community of leaders. ON remains committed to further integrating diversity initiatives into the fabric of our daily operations and client deliverables to take an active approach to DEI – not simply in words, but with tangible actions and results.

In 2020, 37% of all executive search assignments ON Partners completed were diverse leadership placements. And we have placed over 200 diverse executives in leadership positions in the last few years.

Notes partner Matt Mooney, “Today, every search has to be a diverse search. Having a “diversity practice” is inherently antiquated – it’s not one of the things we do it’s everything we do, and it should cut across every aspect of every search assignment.”

While there is still much work to be done, ON Partners recently recognized a sample of the organizations and executive leaders within our ON community that have made great strides in building diverse leadership teams, including Logitech, Ball Corporation, and ServiceNow. And, as part of ON Partners’ commitment to building more diverse organizations, we’re actively listening to our community of leaders and executive influencers to understand what actions they are taking, where the challenges are, and what organizations they admire for their diversity and inclusion initiatives. See a sampling of what we’ve heard so far, both from our community of executive influencers, as well as insights from our own consultants. To continue to build on these learnings, we want to hear from you.
