Advisory and Other Services

Sometimes a growing business needs consultative and support services that do not immediately lead to a specific hire. August Venture Talent offers customized services to help a client address issues related to hiring and building a team. We can help devise a talent strategy, or serve as scouts for mapping the talent landscape or building the pipeline for future hires. We can help identify and remove certain barriers to diversity and work with your organization to create a more inclusive environment. We can assess and help to remediate retention problems.  Or maybe your hiring managers or recruitment team could use coaching in writing job descriptions or effective interviewing. Whatever obstacles you experience to your hiring and retention objectives, we can help provide a solution.
