Hiring a CEO Virtually

Though qualitatively different from in-person meetings, a virtually conducted interview process is equally valuable to those making senior-level hiring decisions.

John Wood, vice chairman at Heidrick & Struggles, speaks with Kerry Sulkowicz, managing principal at psychodynamic management consulting firm Boswell Group LLC and the president-elect of the American Psychoanalytic Association, about the benefits and drawbacks of conducting the senior-level hiring process virtually. Sulkowicz offers a couple tips for interviewers on how to ensure they’re getting enough information to make these key decisions remotely, and explains that though virtual meetings are qualitatively different, they’re not inferior—in fact, they’re a useful way to evaluate a candidate’s ability to lead in a virtual environment.
