About the Speaker: Gary O'Neal
Achilles Group is proud to present Mr. Gary O’Neal from Coolhires Ltd. He will speak on how to effectively get more than your company’s fair share of the top talent. In 2000, after a successful career in the technology industry that included time at NASA, Gary O'Neal had a passion for building successful organizations by identifying, hiring, and retaining the best talent in the industry. The problem was that very few firms approached this task with a systematic methodology that would provide consistent results. And even fewer recruiting and staffing firms were willing or able to establish the long-term strategic relationships with their clients that could solve anything more than their "hair on fire" needs. So, in 2000, O'Neal formed Coolhires Ltd. to revolutionize the recruiting industry.
Coolhires is a Managed Recruiting Services firm that provides outsourced recruiting services (RPO) and recruiting consulting and training. By aligning our client's hiring strategy with their business plan, Coolhires shifts from a traditional transaction-based vendor to a professional services-based partnership.
