Shreya Biswas from the Economic Times in India recently discussed the increasing length of time taken to fulfill executive positions with Anita Belani, India country manager at Russell Reynolds Associates.

At another Indian conglomerate and financial services MNC, the time frame to hire a CXO went up to six months from an average of four months. "They sat on positions as they were not completely satisfied, weighing their options in a dim market. We have seen at least three to four such cases," says Anita Belani, country manager at executive search firm Russell Reynolds Associates, India.
