Defined Process

Our Dimensional Search® process creates a unique profile that matches a candidate’s personal skill level to position requirements, past experience to future expectations and management style to corporate culture (See Our Process for more details).

The Personal Touch

Our business model is to focus on a relatively small number of clients with a small team of professionals who can “get close and personal” with the client and deliver outstanding results. We have deliberately kept our overhead and infrastructure to the minimum so we can offer “exceptional value” to the client, while optimizing the breadth and depth of the broader Sanford Rose family of professionals. With the buying power of the Sanford Rose Associates® partnership we have negotiated superior terms on other “added value” services that are either built into the fee structure or made available to the client as requested.

State of the Art Technology

As a partner in the Sanford Rose Associates® family, our organization has access to a comprehensive global database and suite of state of the art search tools that are linked to the majority of social media websites. As a result, clients get the benefit of “global searches” that widen the available Talent pool of both active and inactive candidates. Our proprietary process allows us to optimize the benefits of database technology so we can accelerate and improve the search and selection process.

A Unique Structure and Culture

Sanford Rose Associates® has developed a unique business structure and model that empowers its owners to provide exceptional personalized service to our clients. As owners, we ensure our culture is entrepreneurial, sensitive to local and global markets and able to react quickly to our clients’ needs.

We listen, learn and seek to understand

We strive to uncover what our clients really need by listening carefully, checking to confirm what we heard and offering guidance on how that is likely to impact the search.
