Our organization recently worked with High Country Search Group to fill an open position within our office. This was our first experience using an outside company to help with the hiring process and I have to say this was by far the easiest. Prior to beginning this process High Country took the time to visit us and learn more about the organization, the culture, and the position. Rather than spending hours sifting and screening through submitted resumes we were able to use our efforts in preparing for interviews, interviewing, and debriefing about the submitted candidates. Each interview was followed up with a phone call from our contact at High Country as he wanted to be sure his interpretation of what we were looking for and the candidates they were sending were aligned with our needs. Every team member we had contact with proved to be professional and truly cared that we found the right fit for our organization. It was pleasure working with the High Country team, not only will we continue to use them in the future for recruiting efforts but we would strongly recommend them to anyone looking for highly qualified candidates that fit best in your company!

High Country Search Group has been a valuable recruitment partner for the last 20 years. Their understanding of business needs and culture of my organizations enables them to provide me with high calibre applicants. I know when I interview a High Country candidate they will have already vetted as a suitable fit within the company and culture by a partner who knows us well. I am happy to recommend the recruitment services offered by High Country Executive Search.

I’ve worked with Monte and his group for nearly ten years and I can tell you, there is a clear difference in how The High Country Search Group operates versus the typical Recruiting Firm.
They’ve taken the time to get to know me, my organization, the type of people I need and the type of people that work well for my company What I particularly like about High Country is they thoroughly pre-screen their candidates against my requirements so I don’t have to waste my time sifting through resumes. By the time a candidate reaches my desk, I can trust that this person has been vetted and is very likely qualified for the position.

Our Firm has had great success with Jim Dahl for both our staff accounting position which we filled about one-and-a-half years ago and just recently with our new Director of Corporate Accounting. In both cases, we successfully were able to hire great new employees. In addition, I believe we were provided with a great pool of quality candidates from which we were able to structure an interview process resulting in two or more finalists – either of which would have proven successful.
In each case, Jim did a great job of listening to our needs, providing useful insights on market benchmarking, and providing a pre-filtered list of candidates with great credentials. In addition, Jim was able to move very quickly given his quality network of contacts he continuously maintains.
I highly recommend Jim and believe it will be worth your investment to have a conversation with him and determine if there is a fit for your needs.
– Leo, Chief Financial Officer
Nate reached out to me during a time when I was still unsure of what direction I wanted to go in terms of staying at my current job or pursuing a new one. He showed great willingness and patience to give me the space and time I needed to decide what I wanted to do and ultimately, he was the only recruiter I wanted to work with because I trusted that he was truly committed to helping me pursue a new career path. Nate was fantastic to work with throughout the process and I was extremely impressed with his ability to form solid relationships (with myself and others). He is great at listening and understanding what his candidates are looking for and seeks to present the best opportunities possible for those that work with him. I definitely hope to continue my relationship with Nate.

In my 13 years working with executive and staffing partners, Monte and Jerod of High Country Search Group stand out as providing the highest quality and caliber candidates. They are the best in Denver.

Before I board my next plane, I wanted to steal a few moments to send a quick message thanking you and your team for the exceptional service our company has benefited from by working with Jim Dahl. While you don’t know me well, you should know that I have historically been one of the staunchest critics of the levels of client service provided by, seemingly, each of your competitors. That said, in working with Jim, I have finally found the individuals and organization that provides both client service and business partnership through the entirety of the recruiting and placement process.
Jim demonstrated a proactive and engaging approach to our placement needs. Not only did they take the time on the front end to learn about our organization, but more importantly, he also listened to what it was we needed to build our team. Having a daunting task in front of us, Jim did all he could to make the process of hiring key members of our team as painless for us as possible. Additionally, he took control of the entire process for us, from providing us solid candidates, coordinating all the schedules, background prep on each candidate, providing a great space to interview, effective communications with our candidates and the type of follow-through I didn’t think was even available in your industry. Even more impressive is that he didn’t even hesitate to make himself available to us during the holidays, even if out of town. Wow.
Of course, what made the experience even more unparalleled was the fact that Jim was delightful to work with and his attention to detail certainly made your level of client service stand apart from your peers. I found Jim provided insightful comments into the skill sets, organizational fit and motivating factors surrounding each candidate. He was candid about his conversations and fair to both the candidate and our team. In the end, I felt much more confident in each of our hires knowing that members of your organization wire in lock-step with us on the decision.
-Craig, Corporate Controller
I appreciate that Matt Shannon and Jace Jackson have maintained a relationship with me. They have checked on me a few times to assure that I am settled and comfortable in my new role. It shows the integrity of High Country Staffing. I would recommend High County to anyone who is serious about quality placement.
-Michael, AP Specialist
Jerod is always wonderful to work with. He makes my job as a corporate recruiter easier by understanding the struggles of our inside candidate pool and providing us with strong outside candidates. Jerod is always reachable and eager to help with any outside staffing needs I might need.
