We do four things really well for you .
To start a search we invest significant time to understand your company, the position, and strategizing how to attract the highly-qualified candidate.
Once the foundation is laid we use our substantial proprietary database, connections, research, and recruiting tools to diplomatically represent your job to passive candidates. This is good, old-fashioned, headhunting.
The candidates you are presented come with a substantial package consisting of their resume, letters of recommendation, run references, and audio clips answering your critical questions. Through the vetting process, we will attend all the interviews and collaboratively screen the candidate with you. This is how we can be confident in sharing the hiring risk with you with our replacement policy.
Recruiting, attracting, interviewing, onboarding, and retaining are challenging subjects that depend on the unique nuances of your culture and values. We will help you hone your process within your priorities so that you see enhancements across your company, not just the candidates we recruit for you.
Our service benefits candidates and clients alike because our focus is on connecting great people.
