our origin story

The true story of how we decided to start our own Idaho-centric recruiting firm came when our founder was working as an in-house recruiter for Idaho’s largest employer.

An out-of-state headhunter presented a candidate for a role. When asked why the candidate was interested in relocating to Boise, the headhunter said because they were a Harley Davidson enthusiast and that the company location put the candidate closer to Sturgis (home of the famous annual motorcycle rally).

This was confusing, since Sturgis is in South Dakota, approximately 900 miles away from Boise. Upon further investigation, it turned out that the headhunter thought the position was located in Boise, Iowa… not Idaho.

At that point, it became clear that Idaho-based companies needed a better recruiting option—one they could trust to effectively recruit top talent for their key professional and executive roles while also knowing all there is to love about building a life in Idaho.

As proud community members raising our families here, we’re invested in attracting and retaining the best talent to support a healthy, prosperous Idaho economy that improves the lives and livelihoods for the benefit of all.
