Laka & Company is a firm that specializes in helping firms identify, attract, hire, retain, and develop the best possible talent for the Accounting/Finance, Executive Leadership, Human Resource/HR/Talent Acquisition, IT/Technology, Manufacturing/Logistics/Supply Chain, Marketing, and Operations marketplace.
We are able to provide strategic and tactical professionals to the 'C' level office and we perform contingency, container, and retainer based search projects.
We also help firms evaluate their workflow, process, and interview methodology and help them identify areas that can be improved upon, areas that are performing exceptionally well, and create unique metrics more core to the candidate experience to provide feedback that has been missing historically.
Much can be done to make the hiring experience more rewarding, satisfying, effective, competitive, and successful for all parties involved and that is where we come in.
We create a win-win for the employer, and the employment candidates by helping drive process improvement and adaption of competitive hiring "best practices". By helping firms perform more effectively while introducing them to candidates they cannot normally approach on their own, we create a formula and process that truly raises the bar on quality and prompt hiring.
Helping our clients change, evolve, and perform at higher standards is a very rewarding experience---especially when it benefits the entire organization and the candidate's hiring experience which in today's social media world, is essential and critical.
It's also respectful and courteous, and the way it should be done.
And that makes our whole existence worthwhile!
