What if there was a subscription box for hiring? 

There is.  We call it Recruiting-as-a-Service and it allows you to hire as little or as much as you need for a flat monthly rate.  

The benefit to you is access to the same caliber of talent acquisition services that large corporations have without having to hire, train, and compensate teams of recruiters - and our monthly fee is a fraction of what these costs would be. 

You probably outsource other functions like legal or IT or finance, so why not your Recruiting? 

We can also bundle exec coaching, fractional HRBP services, training design and delivery, operational transformation services, and culture building as part of our package. 

You get:

A dedicated account manager and a team certified in diversity recruiting that will provide you with concierge service for all things related to hiring.

White-glove guidance every step of the way. We write the job descriptions, help you design the interview process, target your ideal candidates, and close the deal for your next hire.

We also offer coaching to up-skill your recruiting capabilities for the long term. We work as an extension of your team in fulfilling your recruitment needs while evangelizing your brand and culture to the talent you want to attract.

We offer global staffing solutions for organizations, big or small regardless of industry.

Polaris Talent

“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.”

“I highly recommend Polaris Talent, they are very professional, and flexible in the services they offer. They helped us re-vamp our entire organization, from our VP Engineering on down. Acting as far more than a headhunter, they effectively took on the role of our whole HR recruiting department. We tried the direct approach with LinkedIn and Indeed, but working with Polaris helped us greatly accelerate our hiring, while off-loading the hiring effort and still allowing us to put our best foot forward with prospective candidates.”

“When we needed a partner to help us recruit for key positions in our organization, we turned to Polaris Talent because they listened to what we needed and offered us a solution that was just right for our business needs. Polaris became part of our team and worked with us to understand our culture and work environment, so they could identify the right candidate who would not just fill a position but would thrive. From top talent in Engineering, all the way to Sales, they were able to quickly source qualified candidates and worked directly with the hiring manager and HR partner to walk each candidate through our hiring process. This not only created a great impression for potential employees but enabled my employees to remain focused on their jobs instead of reading resumes and scheduling interviews. As we continue to grow, we will keep partnering with Polaris because they will find us the right talent, and have proven to be a trusted advisor for our business.”

“Have you ever worked with a recruiter that truly understands the role, the industry, the internal processes, takes time to learn your culture, stays connected, and at the end of the day you say to yourself “wow, she gets it”? If you haven’t – you need to make that call! Working with Marie and her team while filling top talent in critical roles has been nothing but a great experience, we are enjoying the partnership along the way! Marie is an expert in finding talent! I’ve worked with her for many years, and her technical experience and understanding of the market have helped us successfully fill critical roles with top talent. She is naturally excellent at building relationships with all levels in the organization and a great business partner! ”

“Marie was essential in helping me grow my development organization at Microsoft from 5 to 25 developers in just 9 months. We had several major unplanned recruiting opportunities that were dropped in our lap and Marie worked very closely with me on them and ensured that they yielded the maximum number of quality candidates. Marie was always working hard to make the recruiting experience a good one for us and more importantly, for the candidates. She is a first rate staffing consultant.”
