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.
Hire Your Next Leader
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.
I’ve had the pleasure of being recruited by Y Scouts and subsequently have used Y Scouts twice to source C-Level resources. The Y Scouts engagement with both Clients and Candidates is far beyond anything I’ve seen in my 20+ years as a hiring manager at a Fortune-500 firm working with internal and external recruiters. Y Scouts works collaboratively to ensure that you understand and can define clearly what you are looking for as a Client, and they work equally hard to identify and present only candidates that are legitimately ready to exceed your expectations. Their unique level of engagement and leadership through this process is refreshing and adds significant value in allowing leaders to better understand ‘what and why’ they are looking for in their next critical leadership member; and then they find them.
The level of engagement was far more than I’ve ever seen from other executive firms.
I can’t thank you enough for the work and results from your team provided for us. Y Scouts knows what they are doing! You took the scary experience of finding someone that I would trust to run our company (which has been my baby for the last ten years) and made it feel structured, safe, and precise. You have a process, and it works! I don’t know that it’s an over-exaggeration to say that you found us the exact right person for the position and we couldn’t be happier.
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 values 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.
