Our Story

How The Hire Was Formed

Erin and Tyler first met at a textile company in 2007. Their paths crossed again in 2012 while working at a recruiting firm.  They were both sales professionals in a cut-throat environment, but they immediately connected.

We found a way to trust each other and do the right thing which was hard to find in that world. We broke through the competitive culture to help one another to be more successful. -Tyler

They quickly became friends when they realized their mutual passion for building relationships and making a positive impact on people’s lives. Since they shared frustrations with the recruiting world, they became determined to work together to change the way the industry operated – and thus The Hire was born.

We Are Problem Solvers!

We see patterns within the staffing industry that are troubling. Many staffing firms hire the majority of their recruiters fresh out of college and do not properly train them, leaving them unable to effectively advise and assist business owners and hiring managers. Still more concerning is the tendency of to treat individuals as “transactions” rather than people – focusing on filling a “role” with little regard to advancing a person’s career.

There are gaps in this industry – let’s bridge those gaps and change the reputation of the staffing industry. It’s time to raise the bar. -Erin

We have a Mission

We are both a sounding board for and experts to, our clients. Our mission is to build long-term and strategic relationships with our clients and candidates based upon integrity, trust, and transparency.  We are committed to continuously seeking opportunities to advance the careers of our candidates while finding the best solutions for our clients.

Our bottom line...

How Do We Do It?

We start by working with great partners like The Predictive Index© to provide robust data that informs our solutions. But to truly ensure we stay ahead of the game, we created an Advisory Board to assist us in the areas of Business Coaching, Marketing, Legal, Human Resources, and Finance. Their priority is to keep current with the industry and educate clients and candidates on present-day trends.

Our advisory board speaks loudly because we realize we don’t know everything. This team of experts helps us be better people and shape the direction of our company to ensure we are staying on track as business partners. -Erin
