May 8, 2017 – Chicago-based executive search firm TalentRISE has promoted Allicia Hahn to partner.
“I am very pleased to officially welcome Allicia as our fifth partner in the firm,” said Rick Gray, TalentRISE chief executive officer. “Since arriving nearly two years ago, she has contributed tremendous value to our business and long-term growth objectives, and as important, sets an enviable leadership example for our organization, with clients and across the recruitment industry.”
Ms. Hahn joined TalentRISE two years ago as managing director to build client relationships by delivering tailored recruitment solutions to the human resources, marketing, supply chain manufacturing and information technology sectors. She also has assumed a leadership role for the firm’s operational excellence initiative in conjunction with its recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) market entry and the addition of two major national retail clients.
Prior to TalentRISE, from 2011 to 2015, Ms. Hahn served as executive vice president of the JobPlex division of DHR International, where she drove full lifecycle recruitment services and business development.
Before entering executive search, she was vice president of talent management at HUB International, a $1 billion-plus privately held insurance brokerage with 4,500 employees across North America, where she led the development and alignment of recruiting, performance and succession management strategies and systems. Previously, at Pepsico, Ms. Hahn held a variety of roles over 10 years leading the development and execution of global talent management, talent development and talent acquisition programs for a $7 billion global division that bottles and distributes the entire portfolio of market leading beverage brands.
TalentRISE provides executive search services to the technology, professional services, healthcare, life sciences, consumer, financial services, non-profit, insurance, private equity, and industrial sectors. The firm’s core service offerings also include on-demand, project based contract recruiting for scalable support of internal resources or longer-term recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) solutions, and talent acquisition consulting.
TalentRISE serves a wide range of companies, including Healthscape Advisors; First National Bank; Duff & Phelps; Grant Thornton; VF Corporation; Accretive Health; Dohmen Life Science Services; First National Bank; and Urban Partnership Bank.
Employers Report Strongest Q2 Hiring Outlook In 10 Years
With half of employers hiring, it looks like 2017 is shaping up to be a banner year for hiring managers, executive recruiters and job candidates. Temporary hiring is also expected to experience a double-digit boost year-over-year with nearly half of employers (49 percent) planning to add temporary or contract workers over the next three months.
Solid Start to 2017
Since the start of the year, TalentRISE has opened up and expanded relationships with a number of organizations, including Signode Industrial Group, AArete and Intersect Illinois. In March, HealthScape Advisors, a management consulting firm serving the healthcare industry, engaged TalentRISE for recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) services. Under a new agreement, TalentRISE provides end-to-end recruitment services in support of HealthScape’s forecast 2017 hires for all consulting positions and technical roles supporting its Pareto Intelligence division. TalentRISE partners James O’Malley and Jason Krumwiede are leading the engagement.
Mr. Gray noted that TalentRISE is off to a solid start in 2017. “Particularly we’re seeing strong demand in business operations, technology and marketing roles as major retailers & consumer goods and services companies intensify their focus on e-commerce strategies and the ‘Amazon’ factor,” he said. “Clients increasingly are looking for greater flexibility and tailored approaches in recruitment solutions at all levels of their organizations.”
