The hiring process is all about finding the perfect match for your company—and just like in romance, the stakes are high. When you think you’ve found the right hire, and they turn out to be the wrong hire, it hurts.

Lisa Frye, “The Cost of a Bad Hire Can be Astronomical”
Hiring top talent is a competitive advantage, but too many organizations leave the process up to chance.
Back in 2012, Eagle Hill was a small company with a robust recruitment process. Or so we thought. Taking a closer look, we realized hiring was not standardized and was largely subjective. We had our sights set on the wrong qualities—job function rather than cultural fit—and often made hires based on gut instinct.
We wanted a recruiting process that provides strong candidates from start to finish. We wanted to reinvent recruitment so that it was intentional and data driven—sort of like the difference between getting set up by your grandmother and using an online dating platform that makes matches based on smart algorithms. So we gave our recruiting process a 180-degree makeover.
The recruiting process is where the employee relationship begins. It's the first taste of our brand and culture that future employees have. That’s why we’ve made the end-to-end recruitment process high-touch and personalized. It’s a true reflection of who we are as a company.
Create a strong candidate experience at every touchpoint.
Provide clear, consistent and easily available information on multiple channels.
Acknowledge receipt of all résumés—everyone gets a “yes” or “no” response.
Stay in touch on timelines and personally call top candidates who are not selected.
Communicate the offer clearly and ensure the candidate has a point of contact for questions.
Over time, we’ve adjusted the recruiting process to fit our needs, but we’ve always found it to be a win-win for our organization and our candidates.
An honest picture of our environment, approach, and core values. And the information they need to make their decision.
