Consulting Services

Recruiting Process Re-engineering

We created Performance-based Hiring to be the “operating system” for maximizing quality of hire. By aligning every aspect of your recruiting, interviewing, and hiring processes around this objective, hiring top people can become a predictable and consistent process.

Sourcing Strategy Development

Sourcing the best starts with a comprehensive market-driven strategy. If you’re not seeing enough top people you’re probably not sourcing in the sweet spot.

Performance-based Hiring Training & Search Combo Program

Welcome to a revolutionary approach in executive hiring. Our unique ‘learn-by-doing’ program is specifically tailored for executive teams, blending real-time hiring projects with Performance-based Hiring techniques. Elevate your team’s hiring expertise and achieve unparalleled success in talent acquisition.

Performance-based Hiring Executive Search

Performance-based Hiring has its root in our executive search practice and is the basis of Lou Adler’s Amazon.com best-seller, Hire With Your Head (John Wiley & Sons, 4th Edition, 2021). We follow every aspect of Performance-based Hiring for each search including the preparation of a performance profile with the hiring team. A Performance-based Hiring executive search is a great way to introduce a company’s management group to Performance-based Hiring and the impact it can have at maximizing quality of hire.

Technology Integration

We’ll show you how to improve the performance of all aspects of your investment in technology. Your technology should help you hire more top people, not just manage data more efficiently.
