Our Process


Our experts dig deep to understand your story and your unique needs as an organization.

“DRG analyzed our DNA and deeply understood our values. Even though they had a process, they were much more bespoke.”

Identifying Candidates

Our consultants engage in unique methods of research and outreach to identify a diverse candidate pool others can’t.

“I’ve always said that I thought their outreach to people who didn’t even apply to our job was exceptional and unusual. They turned up good candidates I don’t think others would have found for us.”

Candidate Assessment

Our team fully vets and assesses each candidate to ensure they are a potential perfect fit.

“DRG pulled together a pool of diverse candidates for us, and we landed an exceptional candidate who was a perfect cultural fit. Their candidate assessment approach was very scientific and super helpful. No one else does that.”

Getting to Yes

Once you’ve selected the perfect candidate, we stay with you to help you close the deal.

“They understand everything from finding great people to salaries and contract negotiation. They were the built-in second opinion that gave us the confidence to know we were doing the right thing.”
