Hiring is hard. Hiring the best people is even harder.
Attract Top Talent
The first step to a successful hire is making your company look attractive to the job market. Quality candidates are going to pass on a boring job ad faster than a French sommelier dismisses a cheap wine. As Alex Baldwin says in Glengarry Glen Ross, “Always. Be. Closing.”
Selling the appeal of your company is going to bring the best people to your door.
Qualify Your Candidates
Filtering through your applicants can be a daunting task. Once you have a group of applicants, you need to start aggressively trimming the fat. Go through multiple interviews, ask the proper questions, and run them through a few real tests of their capabilities.
Also, don’t be Yahoo! and select someone who seems to be the best person for the job without doing your due diligence. Consider getting a background check.
Onboard Like The Pros
Have you ever watched the NBA draft? Do you see how those guys are treated by the teams they join? “We love you! Here’s a jersey! Here’s a hat! This is your schedule, here’s a signing bonus check, you’re the man. Welcome to the team!”
If you inspire people on their FIRST day, they’ll be energized for the next 90. Inspire people in their first year and soon they will be motivating others for you.

Get a Background Check
Background checks are an essential part of the hiring process and often save our clients from making a huge hiring mistake.

Work With Us
Attracting and selecting the right people is an art form. Even the best companies fail to do it correctly every time.
A good place to start is having a hiring system, and using an assessment to get a better understanding of the candidates. But these tools are only useful if you know how to use them properly.
That’s where we come in.
Fill out the form on the right to tell us what you need. We will get back to you as soon as possible and let you know what we can do to help.
