Employment Resource Group Inc. (ERG), headquartered in Appleton, Wisconsin was chosen by Forbes for their annual list of the top 200 executive search firms. ERG ranked #144 on the list out of 30,000+ firms nationwide. This list honors firms that specialize in filling position with salaries of at least $100,000.
To determine who is chosen for the list, Forbes partnered with marketing research company Statista, who surveyed 25,000 recruiters and 5,000 job candidates and human resources managers who had worked with recruitment agencies over the last three years. Respondents were asked to nominate up to 10 recruiting firms in the executive search category. Firms could not nominate themselves. More than 17,000 nominations were collected, and firms with the most recommendations ranked highest.
“It is truly an honor to be recognized on the Forbes 2019 list of America’s Best Search firms in the Country”, stated Sharon Hulce, President and CEO of ERG. “The best part of this award is that our clients nominated and championed us! This recognition is a direct result of the hard work the team at ERG is doing. The team is very passionate about making sure we provide a great experience to our clients and candidates and ensuring it is a good fit all the way around”.
Chris Hess, President and CEO of Goodwill Industries has been both a candidate and a client of ERG’s. “The experience with ERG is unlike any other experience I have been a part of. They work extremely hard on making just the right match, not only for their clients, but for the candidates they work with. Culture really matters to them and this is where they excel”.
John Bergstrom, Chairman/CEO of Bergstrom Automotive agreed, “Sharon and her team do outstanding work. Not only do they help for profit businesses grow through finding outstanding talent, they also have been transformational by helping our non-profit organizations find quality leaders as well”.
