​There is nothing that Lisa Elbertsen enjoys more than the challenge of finding a needle in a haystack. In order to do that she incorporates many different “out of the box” recruitment strategies and search techniques to find candidates. Lisa also believes that in order to find the right candidates, she works with companies who value open communication with open minds and building solid long-term partnerships. Lisa also has an innate drive to constantly be learning and growing and continues to take continuing education courses and webinars. At the end of the day, there is nothing more rewarding that a happy client with a happy new employee.

Lisa also feels strongly about the candidate experience. The entire candidate process from beginning to end, should always be a positive one, regardless if they get the job or not. It is about respect. Her entire business is built upon it.  The candidate process also continues long after a new employee is hired and she works with her clients to develop retention techniques to help retain employees. It’s not always about paying the top salaries in the industry. It’s about happy and healthy employees that not only enjoy their job but are proud of the company they work for and feel that they are a part of something.

With 20+ years sales experience, 14 years recruitment experience both in an agency and corporate setting, Lisa is a proven professional that will be an asset to your recruitment and retention strategy.
