9.7 Years

In 2006, we recognized the need for diversity and introduced a client scorecard that held us to account on our ability to bring gender, race, age, and geographic diversity to our candidate pools. About the same time, we invested as co-founders in an aboriginal search firm, a venture that spanned five years. We are committed to making sure that our clients have choice and that we leave no stone unturned in that process.
