Our Tenacity

We’re in it ’til we fill it.

Unlike transactional firms, we don’t drop you to the bottom of the pile if we can’t fill your role in 30 days. Our tenacious team constantly explores creative approaches to your search until a fantastic fit is found, whether we’re pivoting strategies, repositioning the role, strengthening your internal processes or something in between.

Our Commitment

Making a positive impact.

Who we are as a company, and as people, is strongly shaped by a commitment to helping those less fortunate than ourselves. Grey’s pledge to give back is as much a part of what we do as our client services.

Our Guarantee

Money, meet mouth.

We don’t mind saying how great we are at meeting your needs. But when the rubber meets the road, a recruiting partner needs to put their money where their mouth is. We are confident enough in our ability to deliver consistent results for our clients and better fits for our candidates that we guarantee satisfaction.

Our Values

We live, work + act with…


We don’t quit until we find the right fit or approach for every opportunity.


We serve our candidates and clients with humility, gratitude and respect.


We’re “all-hands-on-deck” in support of each other and our clients.


We don’t run to the finish line, we run through it to go that extra mile.


We’re honest, genuine and candid with our words and actions.


We believe shared laughter fuels our continued success.

Success is hearing our clients say they had fun, felt respected and listened to, and grew because of the people we brought to their organization.
