Recruiting Diverse Talent

The Problem – “We Can’t Find Great Women or Minority Candidates”: Prior to using the search and staffing services of CLE, the rationale we often heard from our clients was, “We just did not have a large enough pool of female and diverse leaders to consider for this position, so we hired the best person for that role; It just happened to be a white man.”

The Solution – Put Yourself In A Position To Be Able To Say:  “I hired the best talent available from a diverse pool of candidates.” At CLE, we track tens of thousands of candidates in our data base, including women and minorities who are not actively on the job market, but are interested in hearing about an opportunity that is a career enhancement. We specialize in building diverse pools of talent for our clients.
