HR & Diversity Executives

The stakes to find the right HR and Diversity leadership have never been so high

Human Resource and Diversity leaders are challenged to solve today’s pressing workforce challenges—like the impact of a global pandemic, social unrest, remote working, multi-generational workforce, and the recruitment & retention of key staff—while also developing strategies for creating long-term value for the organization, such as workforce planning, diversity, equity & inclusion (DE&I) initiatives, and globalization.

As a result, the stakes to find the right Human Resource and Diversity executives have never been so high. As a top executive recruiting firm, we have a 40+ year history recruiting transformational HR and DE&I executives who drive value creation for private equity-backed, founder-led, and public companies. Our team of highly experienced search consultants have proven expertise in recruiting roles across the following areas:

  • Chief Human Resources Officers
  • Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
  • Human Resources Business Partners
  • Learning & Organization Development
  • Labor Relations
  • Talent Acquisition
