The greatest competitive advantage comes from the alignment of brand purpose and a team that is inspired and empowered to fulfill it.
We find leaders
Traditional hiring methods don’t align with the needs of individuals and businesses. We believe today’s hiring process overlooks the human behind the resume, resulting in a detrimental disconnect between business and leader. Applicants have become data points and pieces of paper. Companies can look beyond work experience in choosing a leader. Y Scouts is motivated not by paychecks or resumes, but by finding the right person for the right role, maximizing the impact for both.
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 business’ purpose and a leader’s passions and strengths. It is purposeful and methodical and driven by empathy. It’s why we exist.
1- Fanatical Preparation + Radical Alignment
With 63+% of employees worldwide not engaged, it is critical both the business’ purpose and the energy of the team align— that’s when the true impact is achievable
We draw leaders into WHY of your opportunity. It includes the ideal candidate profile, expected impact the right leader will deliver, while not sharing the requisite experiences the ideal candidate should bring to the table. Why give the 'answers to the test' away?
Y Scouts is the ultimate matchmaker, taking the time to connect purpose to positions. They put as much effort into understanding our needs as they did in finding us high-quality candidates. The end result was a perfect fit that has produced immediate, positive impacts on our business. We'll surely use Y Scouts again as we continue to grow our team.
Y Scouts process is extremely well designed from beginning to end. It enabled our team to be aligned and focus on the right candidates. IncStores will continue to use Y Scouts as our executive team grows.
After using many different recruiting firms throughout my work experience, I can say that I was very impressed with them and was able to notice the difference immediately. The ability to track the ongoing process from a platform, not only with weekly meetings, was very valuable to me from a time savings perspective, but also allowing me on my own time to review the applicants and potential candidates in the most detail I have ever had. I would highly recommend Y Scouts to anyone, we will definitely use them in the future.
It’s been a lifelong dream to work for an ethically driven skincare company. I get to be an active part in creating radical change throughout the Beauty Industry by working closely with the Founder of Primally Pure to formulate pure, holistic, non-toxic skincare for everyone while protecting our planet and its resources. I can’t think of anything more fulfilling than that."

It has been a great pleasure to partner with the Y Scouts team on our senior-level recruitment strategy. Y Scouts is a quality firm, with a perfect track record in filling our more challenging roles at LGE Design Build. Working with them has made my job considerably easier. Having a team who specializes in my industry and who understands our specific needs with a high emphasis on company culture adds value to the services that they provide. I look forward to a continued working relationship.
When Y Scouts reached out to me, I was completely unaware of the positive two-generational impact happening just an hour north of my home in Fargo. Through the collaborative efforts of the Community Violence Intervention Center and its partners, lives have been changed by work that will impact generations to come. After spending an entire day with the team, its board and community leaders, and senior team, I found myself feeling very privileged to be considered to lead an organization whose mission to eradicate violence is so powerful. Having experienced violence at a young age, I feel an enormous sense of responsibility to honor the incredible foundation that has developed and I do my very best to expand this vision to reach even more violence survivors. I honestly cannot think of a more meaningful position. I cannot thank you enough for all you and the Y Scouts team have done for me. The move to CVIC is absolutely ideal and I am really looking forward to it! I so appreciate that you encouraged me to apply.
