Why: Our Purpose
We believe today’s hiring process overlooks the human behind the resume, resulting in a detrimental disconnect between business and leader. Why commit to Hiring on Purpose?
What: Our Vision
We desire a world where everyone finds fulfillment from the work they do and where businesses have the greatest positive impact. Want examples of leadership impact?
We are Y Scouts
Through our Hiring on Purpose process, we help define our client’s success outcomes and connect aligned leaders with meaningful, impactful work. Our expertise finding and connecting exceptional leaders to mission-driven companies has proven successful through the hundreds of long-standing leadership placements we’ve made over the years. In short, we’ve created a better way, for a better reason, that achieves better results for our clients and the candidates with whom we matched them.
Is Y Scouts the right solution for you?
We don’t do placements. We align leaders and work. Placement is a cold top-down approach, focusing on resumes and filling empty seats. By hiring on purpose, we take the broken vertical model and flip it on its side, creating horizontal alignment between leader and company. We bridge the gap between the business’ purpose and a leader’s passions and strengths. It is purposeful and methodical and driven by empathy. It’s why we exist.
There was a time when it was only about the resume when searching for a leader. Y Scouts has literally redefined executive recruiting to assure we have the right leader driving the bus.
The level of engagement was far more than I’ve ever seen from other executive firms.
We’re not spending hours interviewing multiple candidates. When we get one or two candidates to look at, we already know the purpose, vision and skill set is there. They do the work for us in advance, so we don’t need to do it in-house or as we’re interviewing.
This is my favorite check that I’ll write this year!
It was so much better than anything else I’ve ever experienced. You guys are in a different league. The process, the way you communicated, how you’re organized, the value alignment. I could not have been happier.
If we had to do this all over again, we’d come right back to your doorstep.
Your investigative research laid the foundation for an efficient search/interview process. By the time we were introduced to candidates, it was clear that they had been well-vetted and were great potentials.
