The ESS Story

Living out our core values while producing unparalleled results!

Modest Company,
Grand Results

Established in 2000, Executive Staffing Solutions (ESS) began as a small company with only a few employees. Nearly two decades later, the same company is now one of the leading Healthcare Executive Recruiting Firms in the U.S., adhering to the same values that helped fuel growth and long-term partnerships in the first place.

“The ESS team constantly keep me up to date, arranged all my meetings with the client and overcame every obstacle thrown our way. After four interviews and very positive feedback from the client we succeeded in securing a job offer.”

Former Job Seeker

“The recruitment team offered unique aspects of the potential (and now accepted) position that piqued my interest. They were very timely in follow-up to questions, concerns, as well as scheduling visits, logistics, etc.”

Former Job Seeker

“I have given the recruiting team various positions to fill and they have always been a great pleasure to work with. They listen, are responsive and don’t waste my time with candidates who are not qualified. They are also exceedingly patient when I deal with non-responsive hiring managers who make life stressful.”

ESS Client

Extraordinary Culture
Starts At The Top

Just like the candidates we recruit and the clients we recruit for, each of our recruiters brings a unique level of value to our team. This is why we value a flexible, yet challenging work environment that allows our diverse team to flourish.

We like to have fun at ESS! Whenever a job seeker accepts a new position, the recruiter that helped them get hired has the privilege of banging a gong located in our office, invigorating the team with excitement. We often run contests that keep our recruiters engaged and additionally allow them to help our local community and reach out through international charities. For example, employees can drop off donations that go to a local food bank in exchange for being able to wear jeans to work.

While we pride ourselves on a fun work atmosphere, our ultimate mission is to give our recruiters the tools and environment necessary to succeed. Our new recruiter training programs and continued education opportunities lay the foundation for our team’s long term success.
