Signium is a leading worldwide Executive Search & Leadership Services Partnership.
With 70 years of experience, we are experts in helping clients recruit, develop and retain the best leadership teams. This means we don’t just find talent – we advise senior business leaders on developing their skills, their people and their organisations. Our clients operate all around the world, and so do we. With offices in more than 30 countries, we combine global reach with focused local knowledge to exceed our clients’ expectations. We dive deep into the culture and competencies of our clients’ organisations to understand the people at their heart.
Whether it is helping clients make the right hire or to develop outstanding executive teams, we offer a hands-on approach to deliver tailored solutions that yield the best results for our clients.
In selecting candidates, we combine an objective assessment of skills and qualifications with an intuitive grasp of personal chemistry and leadership qualities – we call this the combination of ‘intelligence and intuition’. This enables us to look behind the obvious to what truly matters.
Diversity & Inclusion
Signium values diverse leadership, identifying the most qualified talent by searching and assessing broadly without bias.
Diversity is often referred to as just gender balance and we fully agree on the importance of appointing more successful business women in leadership positions. However, we also believe in factoring in other points of diversity, such as geographic origin (nationality, which then influences where one gets business experience), religion, race, sexual orientation and number of years of experience.
The value in demographic diversity is in accessing the resulting diversity of thought. Organisations that cultivate diversity of thought and harness the power of unique perspectives are achieving a competitive advantage through increased innovation and creativity.
An interesting thought we would like to add is that difference in background is also important: did you grow up in a family where your parents – or one of them – worked in a corporate environment? Or as a teacher? In a hospital? Or in military services? An owned company or shop? Or in farming? All these variations will have influenced you and your potential to gain an education up to degree level and develop yourself as a successful business leader. We are convinced that an inclusive culture where every person is listened to, feels respected and is valued, can unleash hidden qualities and will drive every individual to achieve their full potential.
“Diversity and inclusion are directly related to higher-achieving teams, innovation, better access to key markets, improved recruiting and retention, and healthier organisations.”
