Building Great Teams

Creating Collaborative Cultures

  • Best in show candidates

    S.A. Traut Associates has created “Program Management Recruiting”, an innovative, tailored search alternative for select Pre-IPO start-up and Fortune 300 clients. Depending on the needs of the client, our search strategy would involve a combination of internal and external recruiting activity, and Program Management Recruiting (PMR). How does S.A. Traut find its talent pool? S.A. Traut utilizes several recruiting vehicles in concert with one another to recruit the best candidates. S.A. Traut has built a vast network of international friends and sources, which has created direct channels to recruit the best and the brightest candidates. We are creative in identifying the humble”Rock Stars” internationally and recruiting them in a professional and personal manner. We specialize in persuading very “passive” candidates who may say “No thank you, I am not interested” initially, to saying “Yes, I accept the offer” at the end game. We have successfully recruited candidates from Australia to Amsterdam guiding clients and candidates through the relocation and Visa process as well.

  • Stuart is doing a great job as Gaikai's in-house acting VP, HR and Chief Talent Officer reporting to me. He has recruited the best of the best talent from Australia, the Netherlands, the UK, Russia, Germany, South Korea, France and the US. Gaikai has developed new cloud streaming IP requiring Rock Star quality employees....currently hiring over 90 in just 1.5 years thanks to Stuart. He is the Rolls Royce of recruiting, a terrific negotiator, a Rock Star himself with high integrity and loyalty.

  • Stuart is an amazing talent finder. Much more than "just recruiting", he possesses that rare ability to spot in less than five minutes when a candidate is a good fit for the company - not just in terms of skills, but more importantly, in culture fit. Truly a great guy to work with - can't recommend him enough.

  • Stu's an amazing recruiter: he has an uncanny ability to fish great talent out of a very tough pool; he understands what makes a candidate tick; he's unbeatable at closing strong candidates even when it seems impossible; and he gives them the white glove treatment until and after they join. Stuart just plain "gets" what it takes to bring on great talent over and over again -- a very rare talent. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat.
