The Future of Work is Now




Amplify is a modern HR executive search and consultancy that helps people leaders and companies navigate the future of work. 


We work for modern HR leaders and the progressive companies who hire them.

Our past engagements include NPR, Ticketmaster, SpaceX, Hootsuite, Duo Security, Cracker Barrel, Zenefits, and more. 


Hiring HR talent is easy.

Hiring progressive HR talent that can transform your business is not. 


Paradigm-changing technology, societal shifts, generational drivers, global mobility - and more - are adding to the complexity of business operations and reshaping the mold of what it means to be an HR leader. 

We've been operating at the forward edge of recruiting and HR for over 20 years. We've built a network of leading thinkers and doers in the field, and emerging talent not yet on most search firm's radar, who share a deep curiosity around what's coming so they can keep their businesses ahead of the curve. 

Our executive search services tap into our ecosystem of proven HR leaders to identify the right talent to propel your business forward.


A New Model Of HR Executive Search.


The majority of search firms are built for transactions. They're built to serve clients, providing value and utility only when client requisitions align with active candidates. Our model is different.

Being a modern HR leader is incredibly complex and challenging. Our intent is to build an ecosystem; becoming an ongoing resource to our talent network by providing resources, counsel, connections, learning, and other benefits.


Navigating the future of work means developing adaptive talent strategies.


Our strategic advisory services are designed to help you attract and close the right talent for your business. We have proven experience partnering with clients including Hootsuite, Duo Security, SpaceX, NPR, and more on a variety of talent initiatives. These include Employer Value Proposition (EVP) research/development/execution, digital engagement, career site development, recruitment marketing, brand ambassadors, HR technology stack, and modernizing recruiting practices and processes.


We work with partners large and small who embrace a new vision of what HR can be.

We believe in relationships, adding value, and paying it forward.

Great relationships are built on an even exchange of value. As a boutique search firm we're not in the volume game. Collaborating with Amplify means building long-term relationships built on trust, respect, and support.
