Executive & Retained Search 

Employee selection is the single most important task that any organization faces, with the greatest challenge being to attract the people who will help you create or deliver on your strategic vision. Hiring is especially risky for small to medium-size businesses, where every person's contributions matter, and there's little room for error. 

akathame's (ă-kah-thah-may) team of workforce management and recruitment professionals spent decades perfecting best practices around recruiting, hiring, and retaining superior marketing, communications and design (graphic and digital, UX & CX) talent for Fortune 100 and 500 companies, including the federal government and the Intelligence Community. We're so confident in our abilities that we offer a six-month guarantee.
