Michael Best’s relationship with Ascend Talent Strategies is approaching its 10-year mark. Ascend is now an essential component of all our searches for executive talent. The insights of their industrial/organizational psychologists help us better understand the candidates we are considering and enables us to focus our interviews so that we gain meaningful information on how the candidates will likely fit in our organization. Beyond the search and interview process, Ascend fosters a personalized approach with each new hire so that we can build an onboarding and integration plan tailored to the new hire and allows them to reach their potential more quickly.
