A Strategic Decision
Catapult is not just a search firm. We want to know much more than the description of the job that you are filling. We start by understanding your organization as well as your vision, strategy, and culture. We identify candidates who best fit your corporate profile, not just the position requirements. Our holistic approach ensures not just a good fit, but the right fit.
It cannot be taken for granted that the right fit on paper is right for your unique organization. Catapult gains a deep understanding not only of the skill gaps to be filled but also the cultural needs. Recruiting for the right cultural fit can make the difference between retention and looking for another candidate mere months later.
Identify, Assess & Engage
We cast a wide net, reaching beyond our own expansive network to ensure we identify a robust, highly-qualified and interested pool of talent. We also use the Hogan suite of assessment tools to better determine that you have the right addition to your team. We engage your candidates in thorough and meaningful interactions to ensure you know who they are, how they think and what they value.
Start, Finish & Follow Through
Catapult’s Search approach is all-encompassing. We handle every step of the hiring process, from the big picture to the smallest detail. Once the right person has been identified, we work with you to facilitate a harmonious integration, ensuring your new hire is effectively acclimated and on-boarded.
People Inc. hired Catapult Executive Consulting to find candidates for its open CEO position. They spent a lot of time learning about our company, leadership, and expectations for our CEO. This process involved completing a profile that helped us define and document the traits and attributes we required in a CEO. Catapult also spent a considerable amount of time and energy with the search team and the leadership team at People Inc. before they began recruiting candidates that fit our profile. This really impressed me and our search team. Marsha and Paige made the process seamless and presented us with excellent candidates and we were able to select the right person for the CEO position.

Catapult (Marsha Koelmel) understood the unique circumstance and attributes that our CEO search implied and effectively identified candidates with responsive credentials. Catapult's qualification analysis- including personality profiling- was excellent and spot on for the applicant we chose, whose performance has been even better than hoped for. We would recommend Catapult highly and enthusiastically for searches that require insight, diligence and great follow through.
