Wisdom. Guidance. Success.

Every day, we think anew about how to meet the evolving needs of our clients. Fresh ideas, along with 20 years of HR experience, give us the edge in finding People, Culture and Talent leaders – both the seasoned executives and the hot up-and-comers – who can strategically guide organizations through rapid growth and transformation. Many clients have been with us for more than a decade and over 97% refer us or hire us again for HR executive search and consulting.


HR 3.0: What strong up-and-comers need to know

2016 brought a shake up to conventional industries as we knew them. Finance, auto, education, insurance, and retail all got a good dose of digitization, from brand-new ventures like Otto, the self-driving truck company acquired by Uber, to General Electric’s brand-new digital vertical. How will this change HR?

Acquisitions loom large. Last year, non-tech companies set their sights on tech startups, and acquisitions hit an all-time high (see: and Walmart, Chariot and Ford, Dollar Shave Club and Unilever). We’ll see more of this in 2017 as legacy companies make acquisition-plays to keep pace with their tech-minded competitors. Talent management and culture integration are going to be at the top of hiring manager’s wish lists as companies continue to redefine their product and values.

Tech spreads to even more sectors. Take the food and beverage industry, for example, where Starbucks made headlines recently for hiring new CEO Kevin Johnson from Microsoft/Juniper, while Dunkin Donuts and Absolut Vodka both unveiled new technology at CES, an event previously reserved for hyping new phones, smartwatches and TVs. And it’s not limited to Food & Beverage. Agriculture, government, consulting, health services, and everyone in between are hiring not only engineers, but also G&A employees from tech companies. Entrepreneurial HR execs will be given the room to break and rebuild something from scratch.
