[Press Release] Phoenix Strategic Performance & Phoenix Group International Announce Strategic Partnership to Effectively Source & Develop Talent


We are excited to announce that we have launched a strategic partnership with Phoenix Group International (PGI), an executive recruiting firm with over 30 years of experience, to help companies around the globe.

We work with clients to assess the strategic alignment of human capital with business initiatives focused on value creation, and help determine focused performance benchmarks to include role definition and associated competencies. In our proprietary assessment process and human capital gap analysis, we will often see the need for additional professionals to fill key strategic roles. At that point, we will work together with PGI on these professional placements. This collaboration works so well because, holistically, we understand not only the position, but the culture of the client organization, and we can then evaluate the cultural ‘fit’ of the professional for the position.

PGI has an extensive network of clients and candidates at the senior professional level and can work with mutual client organizations to source and place C-Suite and senior-level professionals. In addition, because of the long-standing relationships PGI has with their clients, they can refer us to these clients when there is a need for an alignment assessment of their human capital and a need to determine targeted and benchmark-relevant employee performance development.

We have been working with PGI collectively on many projects and are delighted to announce this new collaboration.

“The measure of success for every organization should be maximum value realization for the business focusing on value creation. Human capital is a key lever that will boost organizational performance. In this regard, it is critical to align human capital with strategic initiatives and value creation. Finding the best people is the first step in the strategic human capital planning process. Continual assessment of every employee against peak performance benchmarks is necessary to ensure that every employee in every role with the associated competencies is performing at peak performance levels. From this perspective, as the war for talent evolves into the war to develop talent, the efforts of Phoenix Group International and Phoenix Strategic Performance intersect for robust collaboration focused on value creation,” says Joanne Flynn, Founder of Phoenix Strategic Performance.

“At Phoenix Group International, we have always believed that our role is to find the best possible talent for our clients, knowing that the best people, in the best roles, working for the right organization can produce amazing results. In today’s world, there are many outlets to source people. Often, the best person, however, is not actively looking on a jobs board, but needs to be sourced. Our role is to source not just a candidate, but the best possible candidate for an organization. That effort goes beyond the job boards.” says Stephen Flynn, Founder of Phoenix Group International.
