Leadership Salaries Are Growing

Nationwide salaries are increasing. At the high end, director-level candidates with whom our recruiters worked received offers up to $225,000. On the low end, compensation hovered closer to $124,000.

A role at one company may have vastly different responsibilities than at another company, and business sizes as well as, resources vary, therefore comparing compensation based on job title alone presents challenges.  Still, employers should be aware of the growing salaries that leaders are expecting for their work and take these ranges into account in order to attract top talent. We work with our clients to provide details on supply and demand as well as compensation data and statistics for a key search.

Or may a company recently merge their technology with that of a competitor they acquired, and they may need someone who knows processes, systems and can integrate them. Standard methods of promoting a job opening are unlikely to succeed in a case like this, and so companies turn to our tech recruiters to find the right candidates.

“WE WANT TO TRY BEFORE WE BUY – ON A CONTRACT BASIS BEFORE COMMITTING TO A FULL-TIME ROLE.”

Because the nature of certain professional roles such as IT, Project Management, Marketing or Engineering work is dynamic, complex, and often project-based, many companies prefer the flexibility of contract employees. With this model, employers can scale up as needed and determine if someone is a good fit for a permanent position while they are on the job.

Exemplar360 offers clients a contract-to-hire model in which we manage the on-boarding, benefits, and payroll processes for their contractors. We make it easier for businesses to adapt to new opportunities and to bring on the talent they need.
