At HireEffect™, we help Founders Find Freedom™.  Driven by our purpose – to boost the U.S. economy one small business at a time - we help founder-led and family-owned businesses thrive and grow, helping to create jobs in the communities we serve.

Risch Results is a recruiting firm that works closely with leaders to hire talented people to contribute to their culture and with the skills to play a critical role in effectively growing the business.

In order to find the right talent for hard-to-fill positions, three things set us apart:
Fit:
 We can find the most qualified candidate based on skills and experience, but they may not be a values match for our client. We understand the nuances that make people work effectively and productively together, even with a diverse team. We use behavioral assessments to make sure our talented candidates have chemistry with our clients.

Research: Sometimes the right person for your company isn’t in a database. We know how to find people, starting from scratch with every search to bring the right candidates to your attention--not just people we’ve met for prior searches or who have responded to a job posting.

Experience: Together, our Risch Results team has decades of experience in human resources, staffing, and recruiting.
