Public & Social Sector

Public institutions — from universities to NGOs to trade associations — have never played a more prominent role in society. At the same time, the operating models of these organizations have had to adapt to a more complex funding landscape amid heightened public scrutiny and expectations. The leaders of these institutions are under pressure to drive significant cultural and operational change in entirely new environments. 

Egon Zehnder’s Public and Social Service (PSS) Practice uses its global reach and long experience in the space to help a wide range of public institutions assess their organizational structure, design role descriptions that reflect this new reality, and build leadership teams that have the competencies and the commitment essential for success today. We work to structure our PSS engagement teams so that they include consultants who have both the requisite expertise and networks and a personal interest in your organization’s mission. We have had the privilege of working with hundreds of the world’s leading public organizations on their leadership journeys and we look forward to working on yours.
