The Challenge

Our partner’s portfolio companies did not have sophisticated talent acquisition processes in place. Therefore, they were spending extensive dollars on contingent firms or attempting to recruit talent with mixed outcomes. Another primary challenge for our partner was avoiding replacing C-players within their companies, ultimately impacting productivity and overall ROI.

Our Solution

Hueman became the primary talent acquisition partner for our partner’s portfolio companies, hiring needs below the C-suite and recruiting for 25 of their 36 portfolio companies. We introduced an innovative pricing model to reduce agency spend and upgrade talent. Hueman also provided consultation on DEI, interview training, recruiter training, and build-out of recruitment functions for five of our partner’s portfolio companies.


Since the inception of our partnership, Hueman has successfully worked with 25 of our partner’s portfolio companies to hire over 100 individuals. In addition to upgrading current talent at a number of the companies, our partner saw significant cost savings with our innovative pricing model. In total, we saved our partner $1.8 million, compared to working with contingent firms.
