Human Resources and Search

Success depends on working with the right people.

No matter what industry you work in, the strength of your workforce is the key to success. From leadership to new recruits, you depend on each person on the payroll. Today’s challenges are daunting: 10,000 Baby Boomers are retiring every day; Millennials are entering the workplace with a unique set of values and goals; and technology continues to change the way we work and communicate with each other. Organizations are struggling to attract and retain seasoned leaders and skilled employees. These transitions are approaching fast, and the competition for good people is fierce.

CLA provides a broad spectrum of search and human resources services to support organizations and their leaders. We offer you access to a diversity of highly skilled people, who can have a long-term impact on your organization.
