Our Clients

How we help our clients

Where is your time best spent?

When we asked Founders and Leadership Teams at startups about recruiting and hiring.

These are the top three responses: 

Don't have time
Not good at it
Dread doing it

How does not having your open positions filled impact your business?

We get it because we have been there, you’re busy. When you add in hiring duties, your weekly workload can become unmanageable.  What should you be doing in your business instead of spending your personal time recruiting?

Focus on what you do best and let Carbon 3 recruit for you.  Recruiting is what we do best. 

What else could do with 162 hours?

Total: 162 Hours

Just think about what else you could accomplish in nearly one month’s time. Every day your position isn’t filled, your time-to-fill rate goes up. Costs rise across the board.

The cost of a bad hire

According to recent studies, a bad hire can cost $250k-$800k+.  It can be crippling to a company’s culture to make a bad hire.  Here is a breakdown of costs associated with a bad hire.

As the Founder or CEO of a startup, you can’t afford this kind of financial disruption. Carbon 3 takes pride in (or values) hiring the right people that align with each company culture, which is why our retention rate is impeccable. (or which is why we have only had to exercise our guarantee two times in 12 years.

“We have been working with Brooke at Carbon Three for nearly three years now and have been blown away by the highly qualified candidates she’s quickly and consistently found for us. Brooke is a very skilled recruiter with excellent candidate assessment skills – not only does she find candidates that have our required (and difficult to find) blend of skills, but also candidates that are a perfect fit for our company culture. When working with Brooke, I am confident our managers are getting the support they need to find the best candidates for their team, leaving me to focus on other important areas of HR. Brooke moves quickly and is able to match our hiring speed, providing an exceptional candidate & manager experience! We love working with Brooke and are looking forward to partnering with her on future job openings.”
