Navigate Excellence

About Polaris

When you find your true north, your journey to success has only just begun.

Your Guide to Excellence

Culture & values

At Polaris, we strive to demonstrate servant-leadership towards our employees, for our clients, and in the community. While the notion of “paying it forward” has penetrated our personal lives, perhaps being a “go-giver” is the natural extension in our professional worlds.  After all, the concept of the marketplace is that products and services are exchanged in such a manner that all the needs of a society are met.  If business only focuses on getting and not on giving, the foundational principle of the market is violated leading to an environment of scarcity and distrust.  We must be better than that. Our goal is to become “go-givers”.

Mission Statement

To guide talent and procurement professionals through solution complexity to acquisition efficiency.

Vision Statement

Advancing soft skills with hard data.

Polaris provides full-service talent acquisition solutions and procurement advisory services designed to give your organization the competitive advantage needed to achieve lasting success.

Polaris, the North Star, has played a crucial role in navigation and course-plotting for hundreds of years, helping adrift explorers find their way using only the bright light above as their guide. From the vantage point of Earth, it is a fixed location from dusk to dawn, neither rising nor setting. This persistence — steady, sure, and reliable — is our guiding principle in each of our client engagements.

Just as we recognize the magnitude of the brightly shining North Star, we understand the weight of our responsibility to our clients. We work with integrity, honesty, transparency, and accountability.

Each of our company principals leads with a focused compass, prepared with the knowledge and experience to adjust direction swiftly as the winds of change necessitate. We recognize that recruitment is a dynamic process that involves consistent collaboration and teamwork. Through every step of the process, we work as a seamless extension of your team, taking on your brand values, mission, deliverables, and objectives as our own.

The team at Polaris uses processes and protocols that drive proactive solutions. We employ innovative and creative strategies tailored to meet the workforce requirements of every client. Our goal is not to simply attract candidates, but to build collaborative teams that will remain at your side as you grow and evolve as a cohesive organization.

Polaris Workplace Solutions delivers better, brighter talent that outshines the competition, while working diligently to guide you toward your True North.
