In today’s business environment, companies across the world are tasked with innovating in the face of evolving technology, emerging markets, and disruptive challenges.

Industry trends

Learning Agility is a top predictor of high potential. It is estimated that just 15% of the global workforce are highly agile. We can help you identify and develop this crucial growth attribute to increase the company's long term results.

Executives with high levels of learning agility, tolerance for ambiguity, empathy and social fluidity are five times more likely to be highly engaged.

Four out of five leaders have serious blind spots about their skills, and two out of five have hidden strengths. We help reveal and understand people's underlying weaknesses while identifying and developing latent strengths.

More than 90% of Empower's search clients utilize our assessment capabilities.

    Clients should never feel that they’re operating independently of their recruiting team. To ensure a quality experience for both parties, we assign a dedicated recruiter, experienced in your industry, to your account, along with a manager responsible for quality assurance. You should expect communication with your recruiter to occur regularly, starting with a kickoff call that takes a deep dive into the position you’d like to fill. Following our conversation, we will research the market and employ talent forecasting tools to assess current talent pools. We gain a deep understanding of the individual who would be the best within the organization, as well as challenges within the position and hiring market.

    Throughout the recruiting process, we encourage candid and regular feedback from hiring managers as we submit candidates for consideration. This in turn allows us to fine-tune your recruitment strategy, as well as provide updates to potential candidates in the pipeline.



    Companies partner with Empower Recruiters because they are looking for superior talent and unparalleled results. We start with our broad talent networks to begin our search for a quality fit. Often, the best candidate for the role may already be with a competitor or a company in a similar industry, and may not be actively searching for an opportunity. Using proven recruitment and candidate sourcing strategies, we directly headhunt these individuals, market the opportunity with your company, and carefully vet candidates against your requirements and our expertise about the opportunity.



    Because our clients demand the best, and require specific skillsets and qualifications for the position, we interview every candidate in depth before presenting them. Not only do our recruiters review the candidate’s professional history, but we take a close look at each role and how that experience may translate into success for your organization.



    As candidates move through the recruitment process, Empower will be with you each step of the way. Your recruiter works directly with you and your candidates to coordinate interviews, behavioral assessments, skills testing, and ensure all pre-employment paperwork is completed. As an offer becomes imminent, we also perform reference checks, help negotiate pending offers, and secure the candidate’s transition to your company.



    Clients pay for performance. Your goal is to hire the best talent, and we’re here to help. We don’t invoice until your new employee starts with your company. Each placement is backed by a replacement guarantee, so you can feel assured that you’re hiring a quality professional.
