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.
Fanatical Preparation + Radical Alignment
We know that as many as 63% of employees worldwide are not engaged, with 24% of those actively working against the companies they are part of. The team is the lifeblood of the business. Without the business, the team wouldn’t exist. Both parties can work in concert, and together they can outlast, out-innovate, and out-shine competitors. When both the business’ purpose and the energy of the team align, the true impact is achievable.
Organizational DNA Assessment
Defining the right fit is more than just a resume (job profile). We dig deep to understand your cultural DNA — to ensure your future leader not only delivers success in the role, but aligns to your purpose and values — and strengthens your culture.
It’s more important than ever to share your company’s story, and draw leaders into WHY they should explore your opportunity. Our opportunity profile is as much a marketing experience, as it is a description of the role and the expected impact the right leader will deliver. It includes the ideal candidate profile. We do not share the requisite experiences/background the ideal candidate should bring to the table outside of our fanatical preparation. Why give the ‘answers to the test’ away?
Every successful leadership hire requires a well-architected interview plan.
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.
Being offered this position at this point in my career assures me that I have continued to grow over the years in this industry to where I can be of value to this amazing organization. I will be able to not only assist the Board members, staff, volunteers, and the animals but help to move the organization forward to continued success! On a personal note, my family is very excited about our move to a part of the country that we've always had a connection to. This position is a major step up and we are all grateful for the opportunity.
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.
Becoming the Director of Customer Success at Remarkable Health is my dream job! I am passionate about excellence in customer service so being the one who helps to shape and drive that expectation makes me excited to go into work every day. In addition to being in a role I love, I am in an industry I care deeply about and a part of a family who shares the same love for what we do. I am also encouraged to be present for my family creating the best work/life balance I have ever experienced in my career. I am forever grateful to Y Scouts for reaching out to me and inviting me to interview for this position!
My purpose in life is to flourish as a human being and help others do the same. I believe that education is our last silver bullet and learning is the key to human flourishing. Putting my knowledge and experience in strategy and innovation to work for American College of Education is a dream come true. ACE’s focus on serving those who serve others is inspiring, and together we will bring more value to adult learners all over the world.
I am so thrilled now to contribute toward an important cause/movement/new frontier that can fully benefit from my passion, skills, and leadership. Nothing is more satisfying than doing well while doing good. Thank you, Y Scouts, for your eagle’s eyes, your values, and your professionalism.
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 business’ purpose and a leader’s passions and strengths. It is purposeful and methodical and driven by empathy. It’s why we exist.
Hiring on Purpose Resources
We help companies elevate their internal hiring processes through an initial 90-day engagement, providing hiring best practices and tactics and an online portal to support ongoing learning. At Y Scouts, we believe learning crushes knowing.
Most organizations neglect to provide sufficient training for those involved in the talent assessment and selection process. Y Scouts helps organizations support their employees through building skills and capabilities to effectively assess talent during interviews. Our distinctive approach aligns to your organizational values, addresses critical issues like Inclusion and Diversity, and helps your team provide helpful, calibrated input to hiring leaders while delivering an exceptional candidate experience.
You want to recruit quality leadership talent to give your company the ultimate advantage, but the candidate who looks ideal on paper may not be right for your business. Skills, qualifications, and background are never enough. You need to look beyond the resume, focus on human factors like values, vision, and purpose, and hire leaders The Y Scouts Way.
Since partnering with Y Scouts, we’re hiring leaders aligned to our brand like never before. It has been a total game changer for our business to shift from hiring team members based on their skillset to a values-based model. Our entire team is engaged and excited because the model has proven to be consistent, scalable and most all, successful.
