Our process is disciplined, yet very personally executed. In our discovery or initiation phase, we immerse ourselves in your business goals and needs, thereby understanding in detail your talent needs. This phase also educates us on your business philosophy and culture. We ask questions and most importantly, we listen!

Since we have a large network of contacts in the industry, we endeavor to get an “informal reference” on all candidates before adding them to our slate. This usually affords us more candid feedback rather than the formal reference process that comes later.

Our detailed process includes custom developed, position-specific interview guides, targeted reference interview guides, job-specific interview evaluation forms, and other “little details” that make all the difference.

At Hollis Jones & Associates, we’re food lovers and we stay informed on trends. We travel, visit lots of restaurants, tour our client’s operations, and attend industry seminars and participate in industry organizations.

We care deeply about our business and about the projects in executive search that you entrust to us.
