Our Values

We have an unbreakable bond with the principles of integrity and trust, collaboration and partnership, and diversity, equity, and inclusion. We won’t just tell you about our values though – we’ll show you them through each and every interaction, whether you are a client or a candidate.

Integrity and Trust

In a business based on people, nothing is more important than integrity and trust. Founded in 1969, our firm has over 50 years of experience working with people – guiding careers, teams, and organizations. We opened four new offices in 2020 alone to better meet our clients where they are. 

Collaboration and Partnership

We see the clients and candidates we work with as true partners, and we pride ourselves on our ability to listen. We are able to offer more personalized service and a greater focus than our competitors because we hold our consultant advisors to a maximum of five engagements at a time, compared to the industry average of 12-14. 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We built diversity, equity and inclusion into the Raines DNA – 66% of our own team is diverse – and into every step of our search and consulting processes. Our DEI practices are grounded in neuroscience and executed across every level of the company.
