Client Reviews


Exceptional Service!

I would recommend TalenTrust to other business leaders. They can augment your current HR team in a variety of ways – from recruiting to data analysis and insight on key talent and culture trends. TalenTrust is a valuable strategic partner.

Teresa Charles VP Human Resources, APR

Broader Spectrum

Our partnership with TalenTrust gives SGM the ability to reach a broader spectrum of potential candidates, particularly those that might not be actively looking to change jobs but might consider an opportunity when they hear about it.

Matt Webster, COO, SGM Engineering

Extension of our Team

The results of our partnership have been very positive. TalenTrust serves over 30 different hiring managers and the team has become experts on who we are, what our company does, and who will be successful in these critical roles. TalenTrust is truly an extension of our team.

The Best Decision

The people that TalenTrust has helped us bring in have been incredible. Working with TalenTrust is one of the best decisions we have ever made.

Kristy Taddonio Mullins, CEO, Mile Hi Companies

Good Talent

We needed good talent at the middle management level and didn’t have the dedicated internal resources to develop and vet a pipeline of candidates.

Clynt Taylor, CEO, Trapelo Health

Well Worth It

The investment in TalenTrust has been well worth it, especially when we need to ramp up for growth. It is more expensive to be without people and run the risks of facing fines from our contractors. The tiered pricing and cash flow friendly model is awesome and helpful to scaling my business.

Understands Our Business

TalenTrust did a great job of understanding our business, and laying out a very thoughtful and sensible plan with both long-term and short-term objectives by really listening to what was important to us. They helped us to achieve it and were available when we needed them.

Ryan Kitzen, COO, Spear
