The Challenge

Our partner’s portfolio companies did not have sophisticated talent acquisition processes or resources. Therefore, they were spending extensive dollars on contingent firms or attempting to recruit talent with mixed outcomes. The portfolio companies were reluctant to replace C-players due to the expense and time associated with recruitment, ultimately impacting productivity and overall ROI.

Our Solution

Hueman became the primary talent acquisition partner for the portfolio companies’ hiring needs for positions below the C-suite. Hueman has recruited for 32 of the PE firm’s approximately 40 portfolio companies. Hueman introduced an innovative pricing model to reduce agency spending and upgrade talent. Hueman provided a build-out of recruitment functions for five of our partner’s portfolio companies and engaged in other talent-related consulting projects with six additional portfolio companies.


The partnership began in 2020, and portfolio company adoption continues to increase yearly. In 2022 alone, Hueman successfully worked with 25 of our partner’s portfolio companies to hire over 100 individuals. In addition to upgrading current talent at many companies, our partner saw significant cost savings with our innovative pricing model. In 2022, we saved our partner $1.8 million when compared to working with contingent firms.
