A history of believing in the value of people.
In 1975, the year we were founded, the concepts of executive search and human resource consulting were in their infancy. Over the course of the past 40 years we have observed great changes in how leaders tackle the pursuit of business success—technology, innovation, and quality have all played a role. However, we believe, as we have since our beginning, that the single biggest determinant of success is people. The key to stronger organizations continues to be not better technology, but stronger people.
If an organization is going to realize its goals, it needs to attract, retain, engage, and develop truly great talent. And when people are aligned with an organization’s strategy, they have the potential to produce exceptional results. It is this insight that has fueled the growth of our organization, and inspires us to this day.
We partner with clients to create competitive advantages by investing in and channeling the power of people. To this end, we support the development of world-class employer brands and organizational cultures that attract, develop and engage the best of the best.
Today our team of professionals is 60-strong across offices in Halifax, Toronto, Edmonton, Moncton and St. John’s. While we remain independently owned in Atlantic Canada, we are also a part of Lee Hecht Harrison Knightsbridge – Canada’s leading human capital company and a global leader in talent mobility, with 300 offices in more than 60 countries. Together we assist clients in creating high-performance teams by delivering exceptional recruitment, career transition, leadership development, and human resource consulting services. That is not just our business, but our passion.
Looking ahead, we will continue to provide innovative thinking and holistic strategies to resolve complex human resource challenges. Simply put, we are dedicated to helping clients make the right talent decisions, because we know that when you succeed, we all succeed.
