The Y Scouts Experience

  • Working with Y Scouts was a breath of fresh air compared to my experiences with other recruiting firms. The entire process – starting at first contact – was personal, comfortable and engaging.

    Jessica Taylor, Director of Strategic Communications at Great Hearts Academies
  • Our outcome was a dynamic and experienced leader who truly embodies our mission. As we continue to expand across the country, we consider Y Scouts a go-to partner in future searches.

    Scott Donohue, National Site Director at Year Up
  • My Y Scouts experiences have been terrific. From the very beginning Y Scouts was speaking my language about purpose, culture and alignment. I knew they were invested in finding someone who was the perfect fit for our company – and they did!

    Adam Goodman, President & CEO of Goodmans Interior Structures
  • Our recent hire has made an impact from the moment she walked in on her first day. She has immediately brought the leadership and accountability we were looking for and has her team more engaged than they had been in a long time. I have great confidence in her to deliver on the goals I have set out for her department.

    Jeff Manson, CEO of Western Psychological Services
  • Personality fit, culture, advancement
    potential, and work life balance were all discussed before I ever saw a job description. I give my highest of recommendations to Y Scouts.

    Billy Malkovich, Vice President of Real Estate at Great Hearts Academies
  • Our leader Y Scouts placed has already been delivering impact in ways we hadn’t expected. He’s been the absolute example of how adding the right person can be worth a multiple on the investment.

    Ward Huseth, Chief Financial Officer at Great Hearts Academies
  • I have had a great experience working with Paul and Y Scouts. Paul has led our agency through the recruitment process for a new CEO with great results.

    Linda Volhein, Interim CEO at Youth Evaluation and Treatment Centers

Find An Exceptional Leader

phase-i

Phase I

Research & Planning

There are leaders who thrive on polishing their past, and there are leaders who thrive on creating the future. We employ an in-depth interviewing process focused on performance milestones, successes, learning moments, pattern recognition, and relevant, upgraded functional expertise. An exhaustive reference-checking process is conducted for each finalist we submit.

Phase II

Outreach & Qualifying

Just because someone can do the job doesn’t mean they should. Our unique candidate outreach process begins by deliberately concealing your company identity and the specific role details. This unique approach yields pure and authentic responses from candidates about what’s most important to them as they consider a career move. When the ‘right’ answer is unknown, the truth is easily attainable.
