Discovering the Universe of Talent at #IBSVegas

Every year, we look forward to attending the International Builders’ Show as a chance to see our friends in the industry and to see the latest and greatest offerings they’re bringing to the market. This year, with over 400,000 square feet of exhibits, IBS stands ready to help all of us “discover the building universe.”

Similarly, as the premier executive search firm serving the hardware, home improvement, building materials, and consumer products industries for more than 20 years, Schaffer Associates stands ready to help you discover the talent universe. It’s been said that having a paintbrush doesn’t make you a painter. Similarly, having a phone and a LinkedIn account doesn’t make you a recruiter. We know your industry, your product, and your customer, and it’s important to have the experts on your side.

It’s been a dynamic year of growth for both our industry and the economy as a whole. As we approach full employment, you’ll need a team of experts to help you recruit top talent. Schaffer Associates will help you create a stellar workforce that will carry your business through to success and weather any storms along the way.

Will you be at the Show next week? We’d love to meet with you! We want to hear what 2015 looked like for you and to see the building universe through the lens of your company. In return, we want to help you discover the universe of talent in our industry in order to position your company for success in 2016 and beyond. As your Industry’s Inside Source, we’ll help you hire smart.
