As the US heads into Labor Day weekend, we're once again turning our focus to the topic of sustainability recruiting and how the hunt for global ESG talent is changing.
In this episode of the ESG Insider podcast, we're speaking to two recruiters focused squarely on the sustainability space. We hear from Kurt Harrison, a partner with the global executive search and advisory firm Russell Reynolds Associates, where he co-leads the global sustainability practice.
Kurt tells us he is seeing "a bit of a pause" in US hiring after several years of strong momentum. At the same time, he describes a very different recruiting environment in other parts of the world. "It's shocking to see the disparity in the level of conversation around sustainability with our European and Asia-[Pacific] clients versus our US clients."
In the episode, we also speak to Ellen Weinreb, founder of Weinreb Group, a boutique search firm focused on ESG and sustainability candidates. She talks to us about what candidates are looking for in employers, and what trends she sees on the horizon for sustainability recruiting.
