Diversity of Client Type, Culture and Size
Our team has worked in each of the above Industries and has worked inside companies that include 3 Day Blinds, Ryder, GE, Safety Kleen, and LSG (Lufthansa) Sky Chefs, and hired or consulted to clients as diverse as The LA Country Museum of Art, Disney and JB Hunt. This gives us respect and understanding of how businesses see and deal with organizational challenges and opportunities, and most of all, that ‘one size does NOT fit all.’
Hands-on Involvement and Commitment
While they provide as little or as much as needed to ensure efficiencies and cost management, their ability to orchestrate the entire recruiting experience for our clients enables us to do that efficiently – By knowing how to do the end-to-end (from job definitions through the new hire’s first day on the job and even follow-ups), we can be sure that even if we only provide a service subset, it will be as effective as it can be and fit into our client’s internal processes. And whatever service(s) we provide, we are involved, present, and available to ensure the process runs as smoothly as possible.
Importantly, we know that our reputation is as good as the last placement we make for a client – we want to be sure that we have happy clients and happy new hires – people who succeed and thrive in their new positions.

- Service: We provide what you need, a “Menu-Based” approach – as much or as little as you need based on your objectives, organization, and budget.
