About Odgers Berndtson
Odgers Interim Canada is the Executive Interim division of Odgers Berndtson, one of the world’s leading executive search firms. Launched in Canada in 2010, Odgers Interim is part of Odgers Berndtson’s ongoing strategy to provide clients with an integrated approach to talent management.
Since then, Odgers Interim has experienced annual double digit growth, completing more than 250 executive placements across Canada. Odgers Berndtson’s Chairman and CEO, Carl Lovas, attributes this increased need for on-demand talent solutions to a dramatic shift in the talent landscape and increased pressure for companies to perform.
Odgers Berndtson specializes in recruiting, assessing and developing senior executives and board members in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors across Canada and internationally. With more than 200 partners in 30 offices around the globe, the firm provides an integrated approach to talent management with a strategic focus on industry and functional specialization.
Odgers Berndtson also offers leadership assessment support to its clients. The firm’s Leadership Practice works with executives and their teams to help them improve their performance and address critical business issues through leadership assessment and development, coaching, onboarding and succession planning. Our proprietary assessment method, called LeaderFit™, provides executives with a rigorous, independent view of their leadership potential. The assessment is based on a thorough understanding of an individual’s capabilities, interests and leadership potential, and what the organization is looking for in its future leaders.
Committed to the development of future leaders, Odgers Berndtson has developed a number of innovative programs that help promote leadership, including the CFO Leadership Program, which was developed in partnership with the Rotman School of Management. The program is designed to help develop the strategic and leadership competencies, which are now so important for success in the CFO role.
Another unique initiative that is exclusive to Odgers Berndtson, is its CEOx1Day program. The program, which matches 3rd and 4th year university students with CEOs for a day, is designed to uncover and develop Canada’s future leaders. Today, CEOx1Day now runs in more than 10 countries worldwide including the UK, Brazil, South Africa and Singapore.
