OUR STORY: IT'S ABOUT FIT!

Waterstone was founded in 2003 as a retained executive search firm focused on recruiting for fit. The firm developed

it's Recruit4Fitsearch process to find candidates that fit the unique cultures of its clients. Waterstone developed proprietary behavioural processes including cultural assessments, directed referencing and behavioural-based business case presentations which enabled the firm to recruit with exceptional accuracy for fit and therefore creating outstanding results for its clients.

THOUGHT LEADERSHIP IN CULTURE AND PERFORMANCE

 

Waterstone conducted its first cultural assessments outside of recruitment and also conducted the first ever Canadian Corporate Culture Study. Today, we continue to use the Canadian Corporate Culture Study™ to understand how culture drives performance.
