Welcome to the ML6 Search + Talent Advisory blog; we’re glad you’re here. We hope you stay awhile, take a look around, and read some of what we have to say. We’ve designed this online space to share our take on current talent and HR trends.
This post is a good place to start. Here, we hope to give an understanding of who we are, how we work and what motivates us.
We understand that no matter who you are, whether you’re looking to add to your team, or make your next career move, you need a trusted partner to help you out along the way. Let that be us.
We’re unique, we’re small, we’re mighty. Some of us come from heading corporate talent teams for Fortune 500 companies, others come from highly successful start-ups, and some from top-tier human capital management firms. We’ve got a great blend of experience, and we love what we do – there’s nothing we’d rather be doing than working alongside you.
We treat people how we want to be treated. That means we give you regular updates, and meaningful feedback that is factual, clear and backed up with data. We respect that the hiring process can be tricky on both sides, and we understand the role that clear communication can have in easing the natural stressors that occur, so we keep all parties as informed as possible, all the time.
Our client’s success is our success. We lose sleep knowing you’re stressed, and we know how challenging it can be to not have the right talent in place. We get that it impacts your day to day, and your bottom line. Seriously – this keeps us up at night.
We challenge your thinking and we offer solutions. Every once in a while we get a request to find someone for a role that doesn’t exist, either because the combination of skills is unrealistic to find, or the salary to hire the person is out of line with the market. We’ll tell you when this happens – we don’t hide from these conversations because this is the stuff you need to know! Most importantly, we’ll partner with you to find a solution.
And just in case you’re interested in joining the ML6 team, you should know this:
We work hard, we work fast, and then we go home. Everyone on our team is given the best tools in the industry and complete autonomy to help our clients and our candidates find what they’re looking for. We don’t measure success through KPIs or metrics – we’re all about getting the job done and delivering an unparalleled experience. Our passion drives us to exceed expectations, but we don’t go too crazy – we encourage every team member to take time to have good mental and physical health, and we have the benefits, vacation, personal time and sick leave to back that up. Our President and Founder even goes rock climbing on the lunch hour!
Bottom line: We hire great people that are knowledgeable and passionate about what they do, and then we get out of their way and let them do it.
