Risch Results is a recruiting firm that works closely with leaders to hire talented people to contribute to their culture and with the skills to play a critical role in effectively growing the business.
In order to find the right talent for hard-to-fill positions, three things set us apart:
Fit: We can find the most qualified candidate based on skills and experience, but they may not be a values match for our client. We understand the nuances that make people work effectively and productively together, even with a diverse team. We use behavioral assessments to make sure our talented candidates have chemistry with our clients.
Research: Sometimes the right person for your company isn’t in a database. We know how to find people, starting from scratch with every search to bring the right candidates to your attention--not just people we’ve met for prior searches or who have responded to a job posting.
Experience: Together, our Risch Results team has decades of experience in human resources, staffing, and recruiting.
