Why Recruiters Will Be at the Heart of Our Corporate Future

As we transition into a society driven by social media, some within the recruiting and human resource profession are questioning the unique value proposition for executive recruiters as social networks such as LinkedIn and Facebook become increasingly popular recruitment tools.


An article by Adrian Kinnersley called Why Recruiters Will Be at the Heart of Our Corporate Future explains, quite convincingly, why there will always be a place for retained search firms such as Capstone.  At Capstone, we provide a holistic and book end process for the staffing needs of our clients. Almost 20 years of experience working with client companies from start-ups to Fortune 500 corporations has taught us that by aligning a client’s organizational structure with the organization’s strategic goals positions us to dramatically influence the efficiency and eventual outcome of these strategic initiatives.   Beyond just filling key roles on a client’s team, our external perspective can often help identify solutions that those too close to the problem cannot see, resulting in more robust outcomes.  This approach, coupled with our ability to find and evaluate passive candidates that poses both exceptional EQ and IQ talent, adds significant value to an organization beyond the simple upfront cost savings that social networking tools may bring to the recruiting process.

Capstone Named March 2013 Partner of the Month by TVHS

Capstone is proud to be named  Partner of the Month for March 2013 by Tech Valley High School, joining the likes of GE, Momentive, and M&T Bank as companies within the region who have held this distinction.  The following excerpt from the TVHS web site describes the school’s partnership with Capstone.

“Capstone has been involved in Tech Valley High School® since its inception and Amy Johnson has chaired the school’s Business Alliance from the start. She has used her organization’s knowledge and connections with high tech partners to help recruit volunteers and work sites for curriculum connections and student field work. With Capstone’s help, more than150 representatives from these groups are recruited each year to volunteer their time and expertise to the school. Through these efforts Capstone is setting the stage to ensure the region has a qualified and ready workforce for many years to come. Amy’s countless volunteer hours and those of the partners she and her company recruit set the stage for students to learn the value of giving back to the community that supports them.”
