  • Understanding every aspect of the client

    We’re in the business to help clients uncover the best people for their strategies. We take the time to immerse ourselves in your business and learn the challenges you face. At times, we may challenge your thinking to take the best possible people into consideration.

    We remain with you as partners beyond the search. These deep, long-term partnerships provide us with the perspective to get each search right. And building those partnerships starts with a single conversation.

  • A refreshing focus on candidate experience

    Whether we are contacting you about a search or offering career guidance, we strive to always be professional, courteous, rigorous and honest.

    We invest in building non-transactional partnerships with our candidates outside the search process. Our focus on a constructive candidate experience means that you can trust our advice throughout your executive career.

  • Our freethinking, collaborative culture

    Odgers Berndtson is a business with a strong culture that our clients and candidates say sets us apart. We are values-based rather than rules-based. We combine the freedom to consider the future with the agility to act today.

    Across our business, we draw on our experience, expertise and, contacts to deliver the best possible search. In so doing, we build teams combining sector, function and regional knowledge. We prefer these partnerships to big personalities. It’s why clients consistently tell us that our culture is a point of difference, and a position of strength.
