The Art of theTalent Scout.
As with any artform, Talent Scouting is honed over time.
When you apply the Pareto Principle to your saleforce, 20% of your team produces 80% of the volume. Statistically speaking, without our Talent Strategy services you're likely to hire the 80% that produce just 20% of the volume.
We typically do not go to an outside firm when it comes to recruiting, however we shifted that focus since being introduced to Verity.

The Verity Partnership Approach
Our differentiated model ensures mutual, long term success. Verity offers Talent Solution Strategy capabilities that you can’t find anywhere else. We outperform traditional retained search firms by making search more effective and delivering only top talent.
By forming a long-term profit sharing partnership, we have a vested interest in the success of our placements and your business. Compare our Partnership Origination Program to typical recruiting models.
Partnership vs. Retained Search
Retained search firms are paid a retainer to do the work of executive search. The fee is not contingent upon making an actual placement. The firms get paid regardless of their success. There is no incentive to perform.
Partner vs. Contingency Search
Contingency firms concentrate on recruiting candidates that are actively looking for their next opportunity. They focus on delivering the most qualified candidates from that pool. Top Talent must be won away from their current role.
Partner vs. Inhouse Recruiters
In-house teams may not have the time, expertise, or networks to conduct the search themselves. For companies with a large or national footprint, metro area expertise is required. And, if the search is for C-Level succession, high level planning is required to ensure business continuity.

The Verity Experience
Feedback From Our Clients
Verity's actions demonstrate a long-term vested interest in the success of their clients rather than short-term monetary gains that you see from less vested firms. Verity builds relationships with its candidates. This works well for both clients and candidates. Verity was the first search firm I’ve used here. I’m highly resistant to outsourcing our talent sourcing, but their approach is what changed my perception. Communication was ongoing and consistent, and the level of engagement and authentic care of a successful placement was surprisingly high level!

There is no sales pitch or high-pressure tactics. The diverse nature and quality of lenders that Verity Search has in its portfolio coupled the teamss approach and professionalism make Verity the leader it is today.

We typically do not go to an outside firm when it comes to recruiting, however, we shifted that focus since being introduced to Verity. This was especially critical during the 2020 hiring frenzy. I’ve personally know Jim Boghos, for a number of years, and aside from running an outstanding firm, he is an incredible human being which translates into the culture and care they take while sourcing new candidates. Their agency has and will be instrumental as we work through an ever-changing business. Thank you Verity team!

Jim and Verity Search have been trusted business partners with me for over 20 years at multiple companies. Headhunters are plentiful in this industry and I’ve been lucky to snare one of the best to be on my team. I’ve landed some of the best talent thanks to Jim and his team’s help. What distinguishes Jim from the other headhunters is that he devotes whatever time is necessary to learn and understand our business before he sends over a candidate. That way he can make sure we’re both a fit for each other because he cares equally for the folks that he’s placing. Of course, our teams have worked together so long that it’s no longer as time-consuming for him, but he’s always in touch with my people. Most importantly, of course, Jim is a trusted friend and that’s what’s most important to me. More than anything, I can always count on Jim’s humanity and integrity.

Jim and his team helped place me at my current company a little over six months ago. I’m extremely pleased with my new company and the way they treat their staff! Throughout the job search, Jim and his team guided me to companies that met my search criteria and all were top-quality employers. Each time I had an interview, it was extremely easy to stand out as Jim and crew were so well respected by each firm that it gave me instant credibility and the ability to shine. Jim provided great feedback along the way and even negotiated a higher salary. I couldn’t recommend Jim enough to anyone interested in looking to make a change in employers. He’s easy to work with, professional, and comes with decades of experience placing professionals. You can trust Jim only works with the best firms and will guide you to make the right decision for you and your family.

I approached Jim to discuss looking for a new role and getting his advice. He could have easily suggested that I use his service but instead, he gave great advice to stay where I was and consider other factors. Jim prevented me from making a hasty decision.

I have used many executive search firms, however, Verity with Jim and Jeff are the very best. Not only do they provide timely results, but they also pre-screen deeply while working with the candidates as a trusted career consultant, not just a recruiter. The fine balance between representing our search need with the candidate’s career path is not easy yet Verity gives confidence to each party ensuring long-term success.

I have personally known and worked with Jim and his firm for over 20 years. On a nationwide basis, Jim has been critical in helping our company grow its senior management and sales teams via his recruiting efforts. The process of working with Verity has always been professional for both our recruits and new hires resulting is candidates that fit our needs and successful at their role. Post the new hire process, Jim has stayed in touch and followed-up to make sure both sides are satisfied and happy. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone looking for help in recruiting all levels of a mortgage banking organization.
