Ascendo Resources: Best Small Company - No. 18

Colleen Atlas
Executive recruiter
Fort Lauderdale - Staffing

“A lot of firms will have a group of people doing the recruiting and a group doing the sales. It’s not as fulfilling that way. We offer one sole point of contact. The Ascendo model allows me to maintain a better and stronger relationship with a client. It’s really satisfying, and you get a real sense of accomplishment when you can match a client’s organizational goal with an ideal candidate. It is a pretty stressful industry. We have three weeks of vacation from the moment we start. And we’re really encouraged to take and use the vacation. We know if we have things in the works, our team members are going to help pick up the ball while we’re out.”
