Francesca Dea, Executive Director, Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions
Our Society has come to rely on Staffing Advisors for all of our hiring needs. We’ve quadrupled our staff size in 3 years with the help and partnership of Staffing Advisors. They consistently bring us excellent candidates who are importantly also a good fit with our team and culture.
Rob Jensen, President & CEO, Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation
AAMI has hired more than fifteen people through Staffing Advisors, they have a process for conducting executive searches that is the best I’ve ever experienced. I appreciate their knowledge of the job market, their careful vetting of candidates and their staff’s willingness to provide top drawer customer service. It is great to have a true partner organization that is as committed to finding the best people to help with our mission as we are.
Jack Goldman, President & CEO, Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association
HPBA has engaged Staffing Advisors for several searches, and we have been very pleased with the process and the results. I appreciate their analytical approach. Because of the questions they asked me at the beginning of each search, I found myself asking fundamental questions about how to best structure each position. Our collaboration quickly produced outstanding results: in fact, I was presented with better options than I expected.
But beyond the results, I value Staffing Advisors’ straightforward professionalism. Their efforts were all about delivering results, and it was clear that nothing was being done for show. Rather than trying to lower my expectations or sell me on mediocre candidates, Staffing Advisors worked as a true partner with me in the search process.
I wholeheartedly recommend Staffing Advisors to anyone considering a search for a trade association professional.
Elizabeth Gemoets, Chief Operating Officer, Association of Academic Health Centers
AAHC has used Staffing Advisors for all of our significant hires over the past several years. They have consistently been a pleasure to work with – knowledgeable in their field, responsive to both us and applicants, and thoughtful in their advice as we work through the process. We were reluctant to give up ownership of the recruitment phases of hiring, but Staffing Advisors has saved us considerable time and effort, and brought significant added expertise and guidance to the process.
I recommend them highly.
Robert Pinnegar, Chief Executive Officer, National Apartment Association
Staffing Advisors is a valuable resource in finding and hiring the right talent. They started by asking us the right questions to make us think about the position we are filling to define what success is for the right candidate. Following that process, they identified a pool of qualified candidates for us to choose from. The people they have helped us find have been valuable additions to our team.
Raj Vinnakota, Co-Founder, The SEED Foundation
Staffing Advisors has been essential to the growth of our organization since 2006, helping to fill more than 20 positions in four locations, including our main office and three schools. Bob’s team is thoughtful, thorough, responsive, and they have access to an incredible network of candidates. At SEED, we often comment on how our culture is both different and a differentiator.
From very early in our relationship, the Staffing Advisors team got a deep and tangible understanding of the cultural pieces that make our organization thrive, and they translated 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 our 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 a top-class organization that delivers.
Jenn Wendus, Managing Director, Keating Advisors
As a human resources consulting firm specializing in compensation, we frequently refer our clients to Staffing Advisors for recruiting support. Staffing Advisors’ proprietary approach to recruiting is data driven and analytically rigorous – just like our approach at Keating Advisors. But what really differentiates Staffing Advisors is their expertise as it relates to diversity, equity, and inclusion. They provide clients with proven hiring practices that directly address bias through evidenced-based interviewing and other techniques. Many of our clients rely on Staffing Advisors’ expertise and guidance to fill critical leadership and staff positions.
Court Ogilvie, Chief Operating Officer, Code of Support Foundation
We turned to Staffing Advisors for a critical position, and Bob and Aileen brought a creative and successful approach from day one. They asked a lot of questions to understand what kinds of candidates would work best for us. They also focused on both sides of the relationship (both the hiring manager and the candidates) in ways that other firms don’t. The Staffing Advisors approach was both strategic (they took the long view) and tactical (they understood that we needed the role filled on a timeline). They also made the effort to understand both our business need and our organizational culture. Whether you are a hiring manager or a candidate, we highly recommend their work.
Mamie Voight, Vice President of Policy Research, The Institute for Higher Education Policy
I felt well supported throughout our search. Ellen was very responsive, aware of our organizational needs, and communicated what was going on behind the scenes with regular updates. The dashboard of candidate information was incredibly helpful at putting everything in one place.
Pat Nichols, CEO, Transition Leadership International
We’ve been tremendously impressed with Staffing Advisors. They have been remarkably creative, responsive and diligent. As a result of their model and their service ethic we have found ourselves interviewing quality candidates in record time.
David Campbell, Chief Operating Officer, Optimal Networks
Whatever you are doing for recruiting right now, stop! If finding and retaining the very best people is as important to your organization as it is to ours, you must call Bob and his team. From the moment we started working together, the caliber of candidates improved dramatically. As a direct result of their efforts, our retention rates continue to show dramatic improvements. Staffing Advisors has worked very hard to understand our organization and culture, which has translated into game-changing recruiting results.
Recruiting is no longer something I spend time worrying about; I have an outstanding partner who takes care of that.
David Stone, Chief Executive Officer, Kensington Glass Arts
We’ve been working with Bob Corlett and Staffing Advisors for several years now. What started as simple recruiting for specific positions has evolved into them managing an ongoing recruiting process that has been highly effective. They have proven to be highly reliable at finding a broad range of talent from C-Level positions all the way down to field technicians and manufacturing workers. They have literally changed the face of our workforce and placed more than fifty qualified applicants in our organization.
By developing job specific hiring blueprints and aggressively vetting the applicants, our staff is left with the simple task of interviewing a pool of pre-qualified candidates which significantly reduces the stress and time commitment inherent to this process. We’ve been very satisfied with the results and knowing that we can fill any open position quickly has allowed our team to grow faster than we could have without Staffing Advisors help. The team led by Aileen Hedden is closely engaged in our strategic staff planning and they have created a process of maintaining a continual pipeline of candidates who are ready when we need them. This recruiting process is now a significant advantage that we enjoy over our competition in a way that we never could have achieved on our own.
I recommend them unconditionally (and often do).
Steve Braunstein, CPA, Partner and President, Snyder Cohn
Staffing Advisors has a wonderful process that really helped us articulate our needs for two key positions. It was refreshing to see the speed of the process and the quality of the candidates presented. We knew immediately that we had people who would be a great fit with our culture.
