RHR International Announces New Service: Readiness for Scale℠

CHICAGO, Oct. 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RHR International (“RHR”) has introduced a new service called Readiness for Scale, announced Thomas J. Saporito, Chairman and CEO of the firm. For more than 70 years, RHR has been helping top leaders and their teams transform themselves and, in turn, the performance of their organizations.

Readiness for Scale addresses a growing problem for companies. As baby boomers retire, organizations are struggling to fill the ranks of their next generation of leaders. Investing in this next level of leaders is critical; however, four out of five firms fall short in identifying and nurturing their high-potential talent.

This problem is most acute at the senior executive level, where fundamental shifts are required to lead in enterprise-wide roles. These shifts rarely happen on their own. As a result, nearly half of high-potential executives will fail in their next roles.

With Readiness for Scale, RHR delivers a defined model based on what is different at the top. This new service accurately identifies strengths and developmental gaps for executives who may possess the potential for enterprise leadership roles, and then supports them in their development.

According to Jessica Bigazzi Foster, Senior Partner at RHR, “Through scientific research and our 70-year cumulative experience, we’ve identified the essential behaviors that differentiate leadership in enterprise-wide roles. We understand what is different for leaders at the top, where they stumble and fall, and the growth they need to be capable of in order to succeed.”

Continued Foster, “With Readiness for Scale, we can deliver accurate identification and targeted development of high-potential executives using an efficient and scalable process that is integrated with an organization’s talent priorities.”

Readiness for Scale is part of RHR’s Executive Assessment offering. For more information, please visit www.rhrinternational.com or call RHR at +1 312 924 0800.
