Noto Group 2024 Hiring & Leadership Trends Report

Noto Group Hiring & Leadership Trends Report for C-Suite executives, SVPs, VPS, GMs and Presidents and Talent Acquisition and HR Managers.

We surveyed over 100 top-level consumer sector executives about the challenges, opportunities, leadership priorities, and trends shaping their business.

Our survey results revealed that employment in the consumer sector will remain relatively steady in 2024 despite some significant and high-profile layoffs. In addition, survey respondents are seeing talent availability ease slightly, allowing companies to take advantage of a moment in the market to hire previously unavailable talent. Companies requiring employees to return to the office will continue to have a disadvantage compared to those that maintain hybrid and remote flexibility.

Overall, there was a theme of cautious optimism as companies focus on profitability and team performance. The stakes are high as the call for new leadership capabilities in our complex, changing, and uncertain world continues to grow.

Of the survey participants, 12% of respondents work for companies with annual revenues of $1-$10 million, 29% at $11-$50 million, 26% at $51-$200 million, 10% at $201-500 million, 4% at $501 million-1 billion, and 19% over $1 billion.

More than half (52%) of the respondents are C-Suite executives; 30% are SVPs, VPs, General Managers, and Presidents; 15% are Directors or Senior Directors; and 3% are other.
