Fondly known as the city that never sleeps, Greater New York has long been the most populous and globally influential metropolis in the United States.
Along with hosting the headquarters of the United Nations, New York’s prestige extends into the realms of finance, commerce, media, art, high fashion,
research, technology, education, and entertainment. As the global center of economics and trade, the weight of the world’s eyes continue to rest on New York
as it ponders the next trends in businesses of all ilk.
The combined New York-New Jersey-Connecticut-Pennsylvania region, encompassing New York City, Newark, Jersey City, Yonkers, Paterson, Bridgeport, Elizabeth,
Stamford, New Haven, Allentown, Waterbury, Edison, Norwalk, Trenton, Danbury, New Rochelle, Mount Vernon, White Plains and Passaic, is most often portrayed
as a finance and entertainment-centric region. In recent years, however, Silicon Alley has usurped the growth crown, with its cloud, media, software, biotech,
gaming, fintech, and technology companies boasting the greatest investment and year-on-year headcount and revenue growth in the region. Of note, the biotech
growth trajectory has been increasing the most in the past few quarters.
In a tough competition with Silicon Valley for talent of all functions, Silicon Alley has brought their A-game. Prepared to do what it takes to land the
best candidates and stem the brain drain of Ivy Leaguers who have dreams of finding gold out west, New York companies have begun aggressively
targeting their employment branding to draw in the artistic, disruptive crowd. Dangling similar perks to draw in talent, compensation packages are now on par
with San Francisco and Silicon Valley standards, and among the highest in the world. Surprisingly enough, financial firms are facing the biggest obstacles in
the war for talent, with more and more new grads and executives alike opting to risk their careers in the high-stakes world of startup technology to chase a
billion-dollar valuation over the potential millions to be pocketed from investment banking.

the past 20 years, including successful executive coaching and placements of relocation candidates in Greater New York conglomerates. Whether you’re looking
for executive coaching as a first-time CEO, CFO or CTO, compensation consulting to ensure all your ducks are in a row for your imminent IPO, HR expertise

position your People or Talent organizations for the day you ring the bell, we know the global HR market better than every other firm.
