How We Work

We're Selective. To provide you with the highest level of service, we only work with a few select companies at a time. This allows us to apply our Accelerated Recruitment approach, and be thoroughly familiar with your company, culture and business needs.

We Care. We want our company to be an extension of yours, as a candidate's first impression of your company often comes from us. Because we genuinely care that we match the right candidates with the right companies, we take the necessary time to get to know your specific needs. We only present Impact Players to you after we have carefully screened him or her and determined that there is a good fit.

  • Quality representation by a recruiter who has extensive knowledge of your industry

  • Complete reference checks
  • Interview preparation and debriefing assistance
  • Offer and acceptance negotiation assistance
  • Candidate coaching against accepting a counteroffer
  • A replacement guarantee

  • Willingness to customize the search for your particular needs
