The client, a top-five U.S. public transit agency, recognized the opportunity to modernize recruiting processes in attracting top candidates and reducing candidate attrition. North Highland helped the client develop a recruiting framework, ensuring the agency can satisfy the needs of its future workforce—so that this workforce can meet the needs of the public at large.Case Study
In the Community
We want to create sustainable, long-term economic empowerment in the communities in which we work and live. To do that, we support projects and organizations that tackle financial stability, family sustaining employment and housing holistically, because our research shows these core areas can have a bigger and longer term impact. Our annual Day of Giving Back has been another way we have invested in local communities, doing everything from preparing meals, teaching professional workshops, painting playgrounds and more.Learn More
