Our Mission 

At Vanguarde Search, we are dedicated to identifying, attracting, and placing top-tier executive talent while prioritizing inclusion in every search we undertake. By leveraging our expertise and network, we aim to create leadership teams that reflect the richness of perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds that are guaranteed to drive transformative change within a company. Our commitment extends beyond traditional hiring practices, as we strive to contribute to a more equitable and representative corporate world. At Vanguarde Search, we believe that true success is achieved when organizations embrace the power of differences at the highest levels, driving innovation, and fostering a workplace that is reflective of the global community we serve.

 

Our Values

When we wake up in the morning and start our day, these 4 values guide all of our actions and interactions with not only each other but also our candidates and clients as well. We understand that how we operate is the foundation for our success.

Accountability 

We embrace accountability as a fundamental pillar of our organizational culture. We hold ourselves responsible for our actions, decisions, and the outcomes of our efforts. Hypocrisy is the breeding ground for a fragmented culture, and we believe in holding everyone to the same standard. By fostering a culture of accountability, we ensure transparency, integrity, and a commitment to delivering quality results. Our dedication to accountability extends to our relationships with clients and candidates, allowing them to feel a deep sense of trust when working with us.

Quality

We are committed to hard work, persistence, and unwavering dedication to achieving excellence in everything we do. We ensure that our efforts are thorough, meticulous, and executed with a strong work ethic. We believe that actions matter more than words, and our actions are centered around an unwavering dedication to delivering exceptional results for our clients and stakeholders.

Transparency

Transparency is not just a value, it’s the foundation of our commitment to integrity and openness. We believe in providing clear, honest, and open communication in every interaction. Transparency builds trust and we openly share information about our processes, methodologies, and outcomes, allowing for informed decisions and a shared sense of purpose. We confront challenging discussions head-on, guided by an unwavering commitment to approach them with kindness and grace. By prioritizing transparency, we aim to create an environment where everyone feels valued, empowered, and confident in the integrity of our work.

Inclusion & Empathy

We hold a deep commitment to fostering a workplace culture characterized by inclusion and empathy. We believe that diversity is our strength, and we actively seek to create an environment where every individual feels valued, respected, and heard. We strive to understand and connect with the experiences of others, whether they be clients, candidates, or team members. By incorporating empathy into our approach, we understand that there is more than one “right” way to get something done – and we celebrate and support each individual bringing their entire self to work. At Vanguarde, no one will ever be shunned for who they are – in fact, we will position you in the best way possible for you to win.

 

 

Our Story

The harsh reality about what companies often get wrong about inclusion and culture lies in their tendency to approach these crucial aspects as mere checkboxes or buzzwords, rather than deeply ingrained principles that drive organizational success. Many companies fall into the trap of superficial diversity, where they focus solely on meeting quotas or creating a façade of inclusivity without fostering a genuine sense of belonging.

Vanguarde Search was built on a comprehensive understanding that inclusion is not a one-time initiative; it’s a continuous journey. We go beyond the traditional notion of culture fit, embracing the strength that diverse perspectives bring to the forefront of innovation and adaptability. Vanguarde Search recognizes that true inclusion demands a cultural shift that permeates every facet of a company, from hiring practices to everyday interactions and professional growth opportunities.

That’s why we are here. Vanguarde Search believes in transformative leadership, inclusively crafted. In our search endeavors, we go beyond merely serving clients; we aim to cultivate a collaborative partnership, transforming them into integral teammates. Our commitment involves a dedicated effort to grasp the intricacies of a company’s existing culture, climate, goals, and challenges. Rather than remaining passive observers, we actively engage in meaningful conversations, posing thoughtful questions that prompt a deeper exploration of a company’s genuine requirements for the upcoming placement. Throughout the entire process, we ensure a company’s active inclusion, so that by the time they are prepared to extend an offer, the sense of excitement and empowerment will underscore the transformative impact the selected candidate will bring to their team.
