High functioning teams are comprised of more than just highly qualified individuals. To maximize the return on your talent investment, your team needs both the relevant technical or domain expertise and the all-important cultural fit. When the team gels, the whole can be more than the sum of the parts.

Our recruiting services assess candidates on multiple levels to find people suited for the work and your workplace. The result is happier employees who are more engaged, productive, and committed. As a result, turnover and attrition are reduced, vital knowledge stays with the company, and you can focus on driving forward.

We Deliver Results, No Surprises

We are a retained search firm, which means we work closely with you to conduct a highly focused search with dedicated resources. We invest the time to find, nurture, and thoroughly qualify passive candidates you would not otherwise have access to without our trusted industry relationships. We work on a flat fee basis, typically around 25% of the expected base salary for the role. Individual project fees depend upon the specific nature of the project and are agreed upon up front, before the project begins.

Our recruiting search service begins with a thorough review of goals, priorities, context and role scope, as well as culture and stakeholder input, for the most complete picture. We develop a position brief spelling out key factors clearly, so everyone is aligned before we start. We manage the project while keeping in close touch with you throughout, enabling course corrections or adjustments as needed. We handle all interview scheduling, salary negotiation, and detailed reference checking prior to the formal offer, and remain engaged throughout the onboarding process.

We work until the position is filled, and we stand behind our placements with a one-year guarantee.
