Sheffield Haworth is now an approved member of the Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC), the worldwide professional association for retained executive search firms.
The AESC promotes the highest professional standards in executive search through its industry-recognised Code of Ethics and Professional Practice Guidelines.
The AESC is recognised by the EU Commission, the US Government and other national bodies and is able to interpret and comment on legislation which may affect the practice of retained executive search around the world. Examples are data protection, age and diversity discrimination and licensing of executive search.
Kathy Tompkins, Head of Global Relations & Marketing said “this is an important step in the growth and development of the Group. Sheffield Haworth originated from a small office in central London and now employs over 100 professionals across 11 international offices, operating in key financial centres throughout the world. In the two decades since the company was established, we have successfully completed thousands of retained assignments, gaining an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the markets in which we operate. Our accreditation to an industry body such as the AESC is both exciting for the future and testament to the organisation we have become.”
