Core Values

Wolf Search Solutions is dedicated to exceptional quality for our clients and candidates, pushing the limits of what it means to be a recruiting firm. Our core values are the guiding force behind the excellent results we deliver.

Quality rules. We own our results and everything in between.
We crave knowledge, improvement, and growth, both personally and professionally.
We challenge the status quo, respectfully and strategically.
It’s not a choice. Is there even a question?
We are stewards of the trust instilled in us by our company, team, clients, and candidates.

Our Commitment to DE&I

Conventional recruiting defines candidate “fit” based on assessing a candidate’s ability to assimilate within an organization’s current culture and meet its needs.

The days of hiring candidates who think the same, look the same, and behave the same are long over.

While foundational core purpose and values are constants, progressive organizations understand that culture must evolve to survive and compete. These organizations embrace diversity, equity and inclusion and pursue leaders who influence and inspire progressive transformation amidst ambiguity.

At Wolf, we guarantee a diverse slate, which is proven in our average of 62% diversity to non-diversity candidates.
