There’s so much
white noise out there! From the candidate’s perspective, so many companies claim to be character driven. Mission statements, websites, interviews, often

How do the truly great ones find
Employee referrals are often the answer. Both parties are brought together by a trusted third party. As companies grow, however, employee referrals alone
often aren’t enough. And your top managers don’t have the bandwidth to do everything. So, additional methods of finding and hiring character driven people are required.
Good strategy, management, planning and vision are not enough to ensure the future …you need to select, nurture and retain the people that will carry that
In a recent study where thousands of hiring
authorities were surveyed, it was found that only 26% of their hires turned out to be high performers. Not surprisingly, the study also found that 95% of managers said the “least enjoyable
aspects of the job were problems caused by mis-hires.” That’s exactly why our recruiting methods are what they are. We don’t go after the low hanging fruit on Internet job boards, but
instead pursue the high value targets who are gainfully employed and not actively looking. An influx of great candidates will dramatically improve the percentage of high performers on any

talent magnets for other high performers. That’s the secret …that’s how we help build companies ….solution oriented partners.
