"I have worked on many retained searches and was particularly impressed partnering with the talented team at HR Search Experts for our Head of Talent search. In addition to their in-depth industry knowledge, strong understanding of our business, and excellent pulse on the market, they set themselves apart by providing a strong structure for the role and framework for the assessment process, which allowed us to align and arrive at a tremendous candidate quickly. The team has a fantastic network and brought candidates forward that met the intersection of our needs and top talent in the market as well as maintained great candidate and client communication. They have an efficient but highly effective consultative approach integrating diversity into every step of the seamless process. I look forward to working with the HRSE team again."
"HRSE stands apart in a crowded market of executive search firms. I’ve spent over seven figures on retained searches throughout my career, working with large, global firms and boutique firms, as well as managed in-house searches, and have found many experiences lacking in value and adding more work than helping. HRSE's world-class consultative approach, transparency, sense of urgency, and incredible talent network changed how I perceive executive search. HRSE efficiently and smoothly learned about FOSSA's needs, teased out what made executives successful, and consulted on an effective search strategy, enabling us to close on the right hire. The team's knowledge of the people space and the ability to understand our specific business, values, and culture was incredibly unique and allowed them to provide detailed feedback and helped me think more deeply about the role, which will make the executive we hired even more effective and successful. I firmly believe they are the best "bang for the buck" in their space and have already recommended them to other CEO/Founders."
"I engaged Janet on a particularly critical search while working at a startup. I needed to find a really strong talent to lead our Recruiting function – a very difficult search in Silicon Valley, given the competitiveness for this type of function. Janet was tremendously diligent, thoughtful, responsive, focused, and steadfast. She really “led” the search – not just managed it. Janet is that rare talent in the search industry who can advocate for the client and with the client. I needed help narrowing the search and Janet delivered. I needed help surfacing the absolute best talent in Silicon Valley and Janet delivered. She really represented us strongly, pitched extremely well, and helped us arrive at the absolute right person for the role. I would recommend Janet highly for senior HR & Recruiting talent searches in the technology space."
"I absolutely loved working with Janet and Brooke to hire Skilljar’s first VP of People. They listened carefully, provided a steady stream of quality candidates, were proactive, gave very structured updates, and were overall a delight to partner with in a challenging talent market. I am extraordinarily happy with the end result and would work with them again in a heartbeat!"
"I started working with Janet in 2015 as I began to build out the PeopleOps function, from the ground up, at NerdWallet. I needed someone that understood the HR discipline well and someone I’d have confidence in representing us and our brand. Janet and Brooke exceeded both my and my teams’ expectations on the way they understood our business, the quality of candidates they delivered, and the depth to which they knew their candidates. I can’t tell you how many candidates represented by HRSE have praised the candidate experience the firm delivers. On several occasions candidates have mentioned, that if it wasn’t for the way HRSE represented NW, they may not have proceeded with a meeting, and ultimately, many of those top notch candidates have joined our team and thrived. The duo is responsive, they’ve got credibility in the PeopleOps landscape, and they’re really relentless on making sure they’ve found a fit that matches well with what you’re looking for as you build your organization."
