How We Help You Hire Better, Hire Less & Retain More

During the 2008 financial meltdown, we saw the huge negative impact it had on the great companies and people we serve and had a revelation: business leaders simply hadn’t been socially responsible by focusing on a non-sustainable model. Wouldn’t it be better for all, including our own children, if we worked to create a more sustainable system? And what if we personally could help by using our talents for recruiting in order to grow businesses that have a positive social impact?

Since then, our team has written over 150 blog posts on the subject and volunteer at social innovation events. The Social Impact, Non-Profit & Sustainability recruiting practice at IQ PARTNERS that grew out of our beliefs can help your organization find the talented, passionate people to make the social impact you hope for. Our active involvement means we know where to find the best talent in the sector. Our credibility means they take our calls. And our experience means we know what factors motivate them to take a new job.

I have really enjoyed the partnership with the IQ Partners team. They really listened to what we were looking for and then were able to quickly deliver quality candidates. Ross’ approachable demeanor and expertise in the industry, combined with his team’s ability to deliver, made for a great experience.

I often tell people that they can do pretty much any search in the world - any function, any location - because their expertise in recruiting and their willingness to get out there and dive into unknown territory is so impressive. I’m a big fan of IQ PARTNERS… Thanks for everything!

VP, People and Culture, LOGiQ3

I’ve had the pleasure of partnering with the IQ PARTNERS team on sourcing a number of strategic and critical roles. They not only delivered but exceeded my expectations each time. They have tremendous expertise, translate recruitment needs into an effective search model based on their active listening skills, and they take a proactive approach. Ross and his team are incredibly organized and on top of things, and are just decent and good people to interact with. I’m delighted to be connected to the IQ PARTNERS team and look forward to continuing to work with them.
