Peridot were outstanding from top to bottom and end to end. They were diligent, thorough, careful, meticulous. They tuned into, and interpreted, our needs perfectly. They identified and attracted outstanding applicants. They gave us plenty of room to discover and form our own opinions, but also intervened decisively at the right moments to give us direction. They avoided rushing us, but helped us maintain momentum throughout our recruitment process. They kept the need to balance organizational fit, challenge and complementarity uppermost in their minds, and advised us when they though they needed to. In other words, they help us make the right connections, and achieve the best result in a holistic sense. They were pragmatic and realistic, but also sunny and optimistic throughout. The quality of collaboration with Peridot and the outcome we achieved surpassed our expectations. I recommend Peridot warmly and unequivocally.
