“Art understands the agency business and even more important — the agency owner.  That allows him to use his decades of experience, his testing tools (custom built for agency employees & positions) and his ability to coach both the new employee and their supervisor to ensure that every agency hire is a good, long-term investment.”

Drew McLellan
Top Dog, Agency Management Institute

“I have had the opportunity to work with Sue MacArthur and Art Boulay for a number of years and on a number of critical hires at Esparza.  Their unique process of understanding the culture of my organization, and only presenting candidates that would be a solid cultural fit has been such a relief.  They have always been right on the mark with their recommendation and have been a vital part of our recruitment process.  I highly recommend STM for your recruitment and hiring needs.”

Del Esparza

Art’s service and expertise have become an invaluable influence on my decision making, particularly with senior level hires, and as a development tool for existing staff. Stunningly perceptive and accurate insights. I’ve chosen to disbelieve Art’s assessment in the past at my own peril. I’ve never seen a tool as useful and insightful as this, and recommend it highly to anyone truly building an integrated team and a unified culture.

Mechanics Savings Bank reached out to Art for succession planning and executive development. Art did a fantastic job and has helped key executives work on a development plan to take on additional responsibilities. Art has an easy way in dealing with people which creates trust and respect in his recommendations and thoughts.

For over a decade you have assessed prospective employees, which gave me insights into how they would “fit” as part of The Chamber team. The proof of the worth of those assessments is clear when you see how many long-term employees are with The Chamber. You took that to the next level when you assisted the board in recruiting a new CEO. Your efforts brought a candidate to their attention who might otherwise not have not gotten beyond initial screening. I recommend you without reservation to future clients.

“I have had the opportunity to work with Art on a number of occasions including staff development and recruitment. He is always prepared and his insight is invaluable. Art has become an incredible resource for us.”

Talent Management

Accurate hiring selection is essential to retain top performers. Employees who fit into the values and culture of the organization stay and are engaged.

Back to Zero

Back to Zero

Success is the enemy of change. Change agents, typically considered to be outsiders and upstarts, bring new ideas to the table which can take an industry back to zero. Those who were successful under the old rules do not even recognize the rules have been changed. Because they have no preconceptions of what a “watch” should look like, change agents have the advantage.
