The HireBetter Difference

Why Choose HireBetter Over the Other Recruiting Firms

You may find yourself asking the question – “What is the difference between HireBetter and other consulting, recruiting, and staffing agencies?” – as you explore recruitment options for your business or as you look for your next job opportunity. 

Although other recruiting and staffing companies may have some similarities to HireBetter at first glance, there are many differences that set us apart. 

Below you will find helpful information on the advantages of choosing HireBetter as your strategic talent partner over other recruiting firms, and recruitment methods. Discover how HireBetter’s strategic talent approach will help you determine the right role, identify the right person, and develop the right strategy to help you grow.


The HireBetter Advantage

We take time to understand your company’s needs and culture, create strategic talent solutions and manage change together. We care deeply about the people we work with and companies appreciate our consultative approach. HireBetter is invested in your long-term success and is committed to identifying the right talent based on both experience and culture fit.

Contingent recruiters work on commission and are incentivized on the sale of a candidate. They can’t take the time to get to know your needs inside and out or to find rock star candidates who aren’t actively looking for a job. These types of recruiters are transactional and sell the lucrative hair-on-fire placement because it’s easy and they’re commissioned on placements.

We take a holistic, integrated view of your business strategy, organizational structure, and leadership team. Our approach and retained recruiting model allows us to take a step back with our clients and approach the situation with a long-term view. We take the time to ask questions and understand your biggest talent challenges and risks to ensure the right moves to support company growth.

It may surprise you to learn that the right person for your company usually isn’t out there looking for you! In the vast majority of our searches, the game-changing professionals we place aren’t actively looking for new jobs – they’re busy building someone else’s company, maybe even your competitor’s. You won’t find them with a business-as-usual approach or a typical recruiting firm.

Our team’s real-world experience means we get it. We bring authentic counsel, a wide range of knowledge, and a deep tool box to craft a talent plan that aligns with your business goals.

Our powerful Strategic Talent Planning™ process aligns your talent strategy with your business goals. We challenge you to take a forward-looking, strategic approach to talent. Our team of talent strategists partner with your organization to help you identify and recruit the right leaders in the right seats to take you from where you are today to where you want to go.

Our incentives are aligned with you and the candidates we place. We are not paid on commission and our team is not paid on commission, so you can be assured that we have a long-term view or partnership. Our job is to help you build a next-level team by putting the right people in the right seats, to grow revenue and profitability. 

Our clients are able to access a range of talent-related services from “hire to retire” including: compensation analysis, executive coaching, advisory board, leadership effectiveness consulting, behavioral and cognitive assessments, and more through our strategic talent partnerships with leading organizations like CEOCI, EOS (Entrepreneurial Operating System), Transcend Executive Group, Sandler, Sandler Training, and The Predictive Index.

We foster a community of growth-minded leaders from entrepreneurial companies across industries and geographies. To the valued members of our community, we provide insights and connections with other members through forums, events, and one-to-one connections. 

  • HireBetter CEO forums 
  • Peer-to-peer leadership events
  • Thought leadership through a variety of channels, including articles, white papers, webinars, LinkedIn Live, and our YouTube channel.
  • We are connectors – we seek to facilitate mutually beneficial relationships not just between company and candidate but also between companies we work with.

Maybe you’ve been burned by a recruiter before (we get it – we have too! In fact, we’ve been very vocal about our belief that the Recruiting Industry is Broken.) We challenge you to rethink what you think about the recruiting industry, and one of those ways we challenge you is through our talent Placement Guarantee.

We’re confident that, working together, we’ll identify the optimal role and perfect candidate fit for your company and your goals. But for those very rare situations where something doesn’t go as planned, we want you to know your bases are covered. If the candidate we place doesn’t meet your standards, we’ll replace them.
