What Our Clients Are Saying About Us
Recruitment is hard. Without question, it is one of the greatest challenges any company faces. Polaris Talent’s approach to recruitment not only ensures the best candidates are matched to your company’s needs, but they also minimize the pain and effort that comes with recruitment. Their focus on truly understanding what your specific needs are, on a position to position basis, is a critical reason why the candidates they surface are excellent matches. They “get it right” from the start. I highly endorse Polaris Talent and I endorse the deep-engagement and deep-involvement approach they take.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Recruiting-as-a-Service?
RaaS is a solutions-oriented approach to talent acquisition. It is highly customized to the needs of an individual organization but still scalable and efficient which leads to better hiring outcomes at a reduced cost. Polaris Talent’s recruiting-as-a-service approach relieves the burden of handling talent acquisition internally and assures a quality candidate experience that reflects your talent brand and culture.
How Do I Know if the candidate Is Right for My Business?
We know that the best candidates are not looking on job boards or responding to postings. The best talent is passive, and we find them because we have a deep understanding of talent pools in our core areas which are leadership, sales, and technical roles. Once we identify a prospective candidate, they are invited to an informational conversation with us where we share information about the job and company and gain an understanding of their career path to assess alignment and motivation. Any candidate we represent has to be highly skilled, self-aware, and have a growth mindset or we will not present them to you no matter how well they match the job parameters.
What kind of companies do you work with?
Our ability to move quickly and hire efficiently is dependent on a relationship where our client sees us as a trusted advisor that they are willing to engage actively with. This means lots of regular communication and clear accountability to the shared roles and responsibilities that are agreed to in the service level agreement (SLA) – link to the graphic. Our model works for companies of all sizes and is ideally suited to companies who lack an internal recruiting function or who have a need to augment their existing team.
What if my hiring is sporadic? Am I locked into a contract?
Our recruiting-as-a-service model is designed for the peaks and valleys of workforce planning or in case of an urgent backfill due to attrition. All of our contracts are month-to-month and can be started and stopped as needed so you can pause when you’ve filled your roles and re-start when you have more headcount. We also offer long-term agreements if you have high volume, long term hiring to do so that you can rev up your pipeline for max efficiency, and maintain the volume over time.
Do you offer general human resource consulting services?
Yes, in addition to being able to handle the full talent acquisition lifecycle, Polaris Talent offers consulting services in general human resource areas including handbook and policy creation, topic-based employee and management training, and onboarding and termination program design. We also offer people and culture coaching to leadership.
News & Resources
Top Tips for phone interviews from Founder and Recruiter Roma Watkins
For the last few weeks I’ve had the line “I’m still standing better than I ever did” from the Elton John song. At first, I was going a little mad that I could not get it out of my brain but then I realized it was the PERFECT ending song to 2020 and is very representative of how things turned out for Polaris Talent.
It starts early. As girls we are told not to make waves, to be quiet, to take the smaller piece of pie so someone else can get the bigger one. We are told not to take up too much space. Not to be too loud. To be nice and kind and to smile on demand.
