We understand each search requires adaptability—it’s the nature of business, from start-ups to the enterprise.
Each search has a lifecycle of its own as we work with the current leadership team to carefully calibrate their needs at every step of the search, from the initial outreach, to adjusting post each engagement with a candidate.
Spring Health is an early stage, Series A mental healthcare startup in NYC with an employee base growing from 50 → 75 seeking a strategic (yet hands-on), Head of People. This Director of People would be someone who can match their thought leadership in the people space with the startup grit and grind of a fast moving, uniquely positioned business.
Growth: this Head of People was a priority with the business's expansion and would likely evolve quickly into a VP level position. Despite being in the midst of a pandemic with COVID-19, Spring Health would still be leaning into the challenging times in prioritizing their employees and this hire.
People Ops Evangelist: despite only having 50 employees, Spring Health already has some best practices like Life Labs (manager training), Culture Amp (surveying), and ERG’s established. We sought a people leader who would bring a new set of ideas and frameworks to the conversation.
Impact: because Spring Health has the metrics for their product’s impact (26%+ engagement; 2x higher recovery rates etc.), we dove deep into candidates’ business impacts in their work with their previous People Ops teams.
This 36 day kickoff to hire is not the norm (average is usually 120 days). However, this truly was a partnership where effective weekly syncs had us calibrated quickly, immediate feedback exchanges reinforced our strategies as the Spring Health team was in many ways the perfect search partner. The person that ended up being “the one” is no stranger to the startup grind, has been hands on while leading teams, and even lives a mission driven life (a leader in supporting their local communities).
