That's where we come in.  We unapologetically bring diversity of thought to our approach, while thinking outside-the-box.

Sustainable Talent  adjective
an organization's ability to continuously attract, develop and retain people with the capabilities and the commitment needed for current and future organizational success.



In fact, 13 years ago, our logo was designed and has reflected our mission ever since.

We created it with people in mind.


Only realizing it represented sustainable talent while building “dream teams” for our clients.


When we started in 2010, our team came from big search firms and boutique niche firms. We knew we were out-of-the-box thinkers and not just recruiters. Our focus was to create strong long-term career relationships between our clients and candidates (talent sustainability).


We care about our clients and our candidate’s success for no other reason than that’s who we are. And building an outstanding candidate experience is non-negotiable.


Part of our process includes keeping your brand intact to attract talent that aligns with your culture. It also allows you to evaluate a diverse slate of candidates that keep your company competitive and innovative. 

At TLR Search, we firmly believe in the transformative potential of authentic human connections. In our recruitment process, we deliberately distance ourselves from the utilization of artificial intelligence that skews or alienates the highly talented candidate pool from considering your open role.


Instead, we prioritize the rich interactions that we can only foster through direct human engagement. By deliberately steering clear of AI for sourcing, we empower ourselves and our clients to forge deeper relationships, truly understanding each candidate’s unique qualities and aspirations so we can understand whether they are a good fit.


Hiring in a human-centric way enhances the start of the human-to-human relationships individuals bring to work at a company.


Our commitment to preserving the human touch ensures that we cultivate a collaborative, empathetic, and inclusive candidate pool where individuals can be authentic and exemplify how they will thrive and contribute their utmost potential within your organization.


Please join us on this journey as we continue to shatter the impersonal recruitment landscape. Instead, focusing on relationships that attract high-quality hires that align and stay with your company longer by placing genuine human connection at its core.

What People Are Saying (Home Page)

"When I moved to Houston to start a new company in oil and gas I had to quickly build out a team that could drive a PE-backed startup to an IPO within a year. Kimberly stepped in and helped me as we quickly built out the right team.  I have worked with many HR recruiters in the past and she far excelled them all.  She is a thought partner, a visionary, and a team player.  I felt like she truly was part of my team in the HR department helping me see gaps in talent where I wasn’t seeing them.  I would highly recommend working with Kimberly at any stage of your company."
