What Makes WSS Unique?
First to the Table
As pioneers in diversity placement, WSS was in the marketplace long before search firms were pitching diversity and long before companies understood the business opportunity and value in diversifying teams.
Fast forward twenty years later and every search firm today claims to have a deep and successful diversity practice only to be falling short on providing diverse candidate slates and making diverse placements. Equally disappointing is the number of executive search consultants selling diversity search with no significant history or understanding of what it takes and what’s involved in a diverse search and a successful diverse placement.
Walking the Walk
While the push for diverse talent has never been greater, finding the best women and diverse candidates continues to pose a tremendous challenge. With a front row seat for twenty years, WSS has watched companies of all sizes continue to struggle with reaching and attracting diverse talent pools.
With a proven track record of authenticity and success coupled with years of experience, a proprietary database honed over two decades, and an unwavering commitment to the mission, WSS leads the way in executive diverse placement.
WSS takes pride in our firm, our brand and our work. We have worked hard over the years and continue to raise the bar. We continuously strive to provide a professional and positive experience for both our clients and our candidates.
WSS. The Story Behind the Source.
Building great teams and recognizing niche market opportunities is not new to WSS. In 1995, Becky Heidesch founded WSS, focusing primarily on women candidates in the sports industry. Over time, Heidesch grew WSS into one of the longest-standing women’s sports businesses in the country, offering a variety of services including sports marketing, consulting, career management and job placement.
In 2003, Heidesch and Mary Lou Youngblood created WSS Executive Search, the placement arm of WSS, to expand and meet the unique and growing hiring needs of their clients. WSS Executive Search continues today with placements extending into financial services, technology, consumer goods, and other private industry and non-profit roles.
