Talent Acquisition

Search & Selection

“Great vision without great people is irrelevant.”

- Jim Collins

What we do

Who YOU are looking for is our true north. Always. 

Traditional recruitment has created a structure where the recruiter is paid solely on a percentage of the role's salary based on if their chosen candidate gets hired. But this hiring model pits the agency against you.  Why? -because if they don't land their candidate in your company, they don't see a payday. So naturally they are pressurized to push for the candidate who is often the most expensive to hire and not the best match for your team.


We have zero interest in doing business in that way!

The benefit of our approach

the benefit of our approach

Our partnership model creates a positive experience for all parties involved. By charging a flat rate, we are able to consider all channels of connection when an applicate applies to your company.  From talent search, to screening, to advising hiring managers, and helping negotiate offers, we are working for you and in alignment with your team.

Calibration & Alignment

We start with calibration. Every new position we take on starts with a strategic conversation that includes the hiring manager and often a member of your leadership team. During this discussion, we align on:​

  • The role description and job ad

  • Ideal candidate knowledge and experience

  • Pay range

  • Company culture right fit

  • Team culture right fit 

This initial conversation allows us to get a detailed and complete picture of the person you are looking for.  From there, we can start our search and begin building  and vetting a pipeline of qualified, affordable talent who are excited about joining your team.

it saves to be different

  • Q: What services do you offer?
    A: We do everything that an internal Talent Organization would do: Strategic support Training Compensation analysis (including benefits, perks, etc) Search and Selection (that’s finding great people and helping you pick the one for you) Offers and Onboarding Working with executives and leadership to help create the culture you want for your current and future staff
  • Q: Why should I hire you?
    A: Because you really care about the hiring process. O&H is never "either/or". We’re an "and". Have a great existing team that just needs some help in a busy time? Great! O&H AND your team have this. Work with niche agencies that you love? Great! O&H AND those groups create an outstanding candidate experience and help you select the best. We work with you and share your goals. When you shine, we shine. If you’re a bottom-line person, you’ll be pleased. Instead of 20 – 40% commission fees we charge a transparent, hourly rate. We update you on upcoming charges so you’re never surprised and we can work to a budget. Savings for most roles are around 50% off what you’d pay an agency and you get so much more.
  • Q: What are your fees?
    A. O&H has a commitment to transparency. Our fees are: $150ph for Lead Recruiter, HR, or strategic services $80ph for Sourcing and Coordinator time For clients that know they’ll be growing a lot we offer a 12-month retainer that covers up to 3 live roles at a time for $15K per month.
  • Q: What is your talent acquisition philosophy?
    A: The recruitment process is a two-way street. Employers need to create a strong value proposition for candidates and candidates need to demonstrate why they’re a great match all around for employers. Candidate experience is a part of your overall corporate culture, so we start there, helping you ensure that yours is a positive first impression. We also believe heavily in building interview processes that deliver all the data points needed to make a decision.
  • Q: Do you guarantee results?
    A: We promise to provide excellence service and attention what your business hiring strategy needs. We work hard to only present high-quality candidates who are properly vetted for your role and organization. Buuuut.... because it's up to you to make the ultimately decisions, we can not guarantee what you choose to do. Sometimes candidates (and employers!) do/say crazy stuff. We can’t control that and take no liability for it. If life (and 2020 in particular!) have taught us nothing else it's that nothing is 100% guaranteed!
  • Q: Will I get regular updates and check-ins?
    A: You bet! We require a weekly sync with hiring managers. These keep you in the loop on all the behind-the-scenes stuff we’re doing, plus make sure we’re fully aligned on current needs.
  • Q: How soon can I expect a hire?
    A: Magic 8 Ball says “Unclear”. There are so many factors that go into this, and only a small fraction of them are in our control. We can get started as quickly as you are ready. We will work hard from the moment you say “go!”. However, we can’t make room on your calendar. We can’t make candidates respond faster. Most importantly, every time you move the needle on what we’re looking for we effectively start over. Those things aside we can usually fill individual contributor roles in 4 weeks, and more senior roles in 6-8 weeks.
