Kate and Treehouse did a wonderful job with recruiting two professional-level roles for us. One was a VP of HR, and the second was a Director of Rights and Permissions. The latter area was a new segment for Treehouse, they had not recruited for a similar role before. Kate was circumspect and thoughtful about whether they could do this or not. Unlike many consultants, she did not immediately overpromise game-changing results. This is the kind of trust-building behavior that exemplifies the Treehouse modus operandi. After consideration, Kate decided that she wanted to give it a try. And the outcome, as with the VP of HR, was as good as we could have hoped for. Both hires have turned out to be two of our best in recent years. I would gladly work with Treehouse again – their communication and followup are top-notch, and they deliver great candidates.
The Treehouse has been instrumental in helping me build out my team as my business has grown. Finding the right talent is incredibly difficult and Kate and her team have worked tirelessly to find the right candidate for the job, in some cases bringing in such great talent that I had to create additional positions. I am incredibly grateful for the hard work and thought that Treehouse Partners put into every recommended candidate, and I can confidently say that my team would look very different if THP had not been involved.
We’ve used talent recruiters for years, for a variety of roles. But Treehouse is the firm we rely on. They’re unique in that their approach isn’t to cast a wide net and then hard sell you on big slate. They took the time to understand our company culture and what success looks like in our organization, and they are effective at communicating our unique value to candidates. They take feedback on candidates that didn’t work to continually sharpen the search. And they manage themselves to a high standard to bring only candidates they truly believed we’d be happy to meet. This has saved us a lot of time and helped us connect with candidates who share our values and standards.
The Treehouse team is an excellent recruiting partner and so much more. They not only help us find great teammates to support our team and business growth, they make sure we succeed. Examples include:
Hire them. They’ll exceed your high expectations.
I am lucky to say that I’ve worked on both sides with Treehouse, they helped me with both finding my current job and with placing multiple candidates for me in my new role. I have been so incredibly impressed with their work. They acted as a coach for me when I was interviewing and a true consultant when helping me find new employees. They took time to get to know our business, the type of people we look for, and narrowed down the field to really make my job easier – exactly what I needed in a partner. Their success rate has been 100% for all candidates hired lasting for 2+ years. That’s a crazy impressive rate in this environment. I couldn’t recommend working with them more!
I have worked with Kate and her team both as a candidate and as a client. As a candidate, Kate helped shepherd and support me into my current role. She served as an honest, consistent, and collaborative partner as I navigated the search process for my next career move. The impact is that I have found a role suited to my passion and purpose in education that I may not have found without connecting with her team. As a client, Kate and her team presented and connected us with a high-quality, mission-aligned, and diverse candidate pool that allowed us to hire several regional and campus leaders that are having strong success in their roles to date and are crucial in our success so far. As we grow and expand as an organization, we will no doubt be reaching back out to Treehouse to support finding great leaders to help us serve our mission.
We came to Treehouse with a big ask: Help us find two amazing people to join a small company in the middle of a pandemic and when the company itself was going through an ownership transition. Undaunted, Treehouse really came through for us. They found us multiple qualified candidates for each role. And because Kate and her team took the time to really “get us,” we liked everyone we interviewed. The process was so smooth and easy — and the people we hired have been spectacular additions to the team. This was our first time using a recruiter as opposed to tapping our networks and I can say with certainty that investment was very worthwhile.
I am so grateful to Kate and Treehouse for shepherding me through a recruitment process that ultimately helped me land in a perfect company and role for me. I’m still not sure how Treehouse found me, but they instantly knew the opportunity would be a fit for me and vice versa – and the match between my experience and what I was looking for with the company and role I ended up in was like threading a needle, and yet that’s exactly what she did. Equally important to recognizing the potential fit was Treehouse’s partnership through the process. I consistently felt like she had my best interest at heart and can point to several instances where she stepped outside the “normal” role of a recruiter to make sure I felt confident, supported, and cared for throughout the process. And now a year later, Treehouse continues to check in on me and make sure I’m thriving – which, thanks to them, I definitely am!
For all intents and purposes, Kate is our Head of Talent Acquisition… she has not only found us great people across a number of positions (from EA to COO), but partnered with us to help us think differently about how we recruit and retain our team. She and her team work tirelessly for us, with an integrity and honesty that we haven’t always experienced with other recruiters. I have no hesitation in whole-heartedly recommending their services.
