Our Philosophy

Ratio is a Latin root of the word relationship

The ways in which we are different have their basis in that word.  It is our relationships, with candidates, with clients, and with each other that define who we are.

We are thought partners to our clients

We work with them in a deep and ongoing way, addressing all matters of talent acquisition, retention, and development. Understanding what makes each client different so that we can thoughtfully represent them to their target candidate pool is paramount to our process. Quite simply, we believe that talent is an investment firm’s most important asset and we are determined to ensure that our clients hire the best individuals for their team.

We are advisors to our candidates

We view all candidate interactions through this lens: they are people for us to get to know, understand, assess, and advise. The credibility and trust we develop with candidates is central to our definition of success. Ratio’s relationships with our candidates differentiate us.

We place communication and trust at the forefront of our interactions with our team

We function as a team on every dimension of our work. The same transparency that marks our relationships with candidates and clients exists internally and supports everything we do.
