Our Approach

Find the leader you need

You have a critical leadership problem.

We can help you solve it.

  • Has growth or change created new demands that require new skill sets?
  • Has a key leader recently decided to retire?
  • Is a leader unable to rise to the challenge?

Whatever the reason, you know that changes have to be made and you need a partner who is as committed to that challenge as you are. A partner that understands how risky it is to recruit new leaders. Done right, it can help you reach much higher levels of performance. Done wrong, it can destroy what you have worked so hard to build. Recruiting leaders is about business, not HR.

You need a solution, not a quick fix.

We believe every leadership recruitment requires a customized solution specific to:

  • The nuances and challenges of your business, your culture and your existing team,
  • The scope, accountability and authority needed to fill the gaps on your team,
  • Improving performance in the areas that are most urgent for you.

Individuals with that rare combination of capabilities, temperament and drive that will fit with your existing team and culture aren’t found by searching databases. Finding the right leader takes effort, imagination and persistence. In our experience, it cannot be done quickly or cheaply. The rinse-and-repeat approach to recruitment never produces the best results.

When I reflect back on the entire process, it's the professionalism, personalization, and end-to-end continuity that stand out.

HumanEdge Global’s greatest strength is they become a partner in the process which continues today, long after the onboarding process is complete.

Brian Day, President & CEO, Campbell Scientific

Amii engaged HumanEdge to add several board members with deep experience across multiple industries, venture capital, government relations, academia and startups - a not inconsequential task. We found HumanEdge to be highly responsive and critical thinkers. They very quickly put together an amazing list of prospects who they had vetted before even passing them on to us for interviews.

I have to say that I was extremely pleased with the candidates and have never found a recruiting process that delivered so many high quality candidates so quickly. We didn't have to spend endless hours sifting through poor or mediocre candidates to hopefully find some reasonable ones who might merit further consideration.

I have absolutely no qualms about recommending Amolak Grewal and HumanEdge for any talent recruitment project a company might need. On a net-promoter scale of 0-10, I would give HumanEdge a 10!

Bruce Johnson, Chair of the Board of Directors, Amii (Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute)

It was a pleasure working with HumanEdge, to meet our ambitious recruitment needs for a very unique position within our organization. We truly appreciated and respect their commitment to understand and get to know our organization, and the details around the specific role being recruited for.

HumanEdge was able to bring to the table highly qualified candidates we would not have been able to otherwise source and was as engaged in the process just as much as we were. They guided us thorough the process by offering their expertise, providing some very helpful tools, and were open to healthy dialogue.

Thank you, HumanEdge, for a great recruitment experience.
