We are honored to have so many of our clients who are willing to share their experience of working with us.
It was important to me to be able to trust and have a natural rapport with the team with whom I would be working so closely with; that is why I chose Staffing Advisors. It was clear from the beginning that Bob and his team had taken the time to research our association and that they were making an effort to understand our unique needs.
For five months, I worked directly with Bob Corlett, the CEO and Brooke Lockhart, the Director of Operations on our search. I could not have been happier with their willingness to jump on a video call at almost a moment's notice if I had a question or concern. Bob and Brooke were both incredibly responsive, even responding to an email early on a Sunday morning when I had an issue. Most importantly, they are both people of character, have a highly ethical focus, and have a great sense of humor, which is an absolute requirement when working on such a stressful task, at least with my group.
Our search was incredibly complex due to the different governance requirements of our Association, and we definitely approached the search process differently than I imagine most associations have done. Bob was careful to share his experience and offer advice and guidance, but in the end left the decisions up to me. He and Brooke found a way to make our process work smoothly and they, and their entire team, helped meet a deadline they originally warned me might not be realistic.
If I ever have to undertake another executive search, I will definitely use Staffing Advisors again.”
“Our organization began a search for a new CEO and chose Staffing Advisors to be our search consultant. We interviewed a number of prominent firms and the search committee unanimously and quickly chose Bob and his team at Staffing Advisors.
What impressed us from the start were two very important things. First, Bob is incredibly thoughtful and sought to fully understand the type of person we are looking for, the values of our organization and what we wanted and needed the new CEO to do. Second, Bob and his team provided a very detailed outline of the process, the timeline and what was expected of the search committee to have a successful outcome. This information was quite helpful for the search committee to gain a complete understanding of the magnitude of the process and the amount of time we would have to devote to find our next leader. And, this was all provided before the firm was chosen as our consultant. To us, this demonstrated transparency, trust and a commitment to work with us.
Once the process was underway, it was managed in a very transparent manner and at each stage the committee received detailed descriptions of the progress to date and extensive information on each candidate as the list of candidates was developed. As we met to review and identify those we would interview, Bob and his team advised the committee on key interview suggestions and strategies and provided their own assessment regarding how each candidate matched up against our criteria.
Lastly, once we interviewed the finalists, Bob was a trusted advisor and helped us to ensure we fairly and comprehensively evaluated each of them. His open, transparent and easy manner, was of great importance to us and helped us reach a highly successful appointment of a great leader to help transform and lead our organization to the next chapter of our evolution.”
“I have engaged the Staffing Advisors team in three different organizations since 2006, and have found them to be thoughtful, thorough, and responsive. Their process has given us access to an incredible network of candidates.
The Staffing Advisors team gains a deep and tangible understanding of the cultural pieces that make each organization thrive, and they translate those lessons into a very successful rubric to determine if eligible candidates would be successful in our culture. Their ability to tailor the process for each organization is what sets them apart.
Finally, Staffing Advisors is not your run-of-the-mill staffing firm; they truly serve as advisors through the entire process. They have helped us to tweak job descriptions, titles, compensation levels, and mix all based upon what they are learning in the market and aligning it with the needs of the organization. They are not afraid to push on me to look at issues differently if they believe that I’m missing something. And, they are willing to work as long as needed to ensure that we get the right person who aligns with the job description and market realities.
I trust them to get the job done well. They are a top-class organization that delivers.”
