“Jocelyn is an incredible Canadian entrepreneurial success story. It has been an honour to work with her and have her represent my personal brand for over 20 years.”
“Joc and her team are 100% all in when you meet them. When you engage with this firm, they are in, they want to make you successful, they are an extension of your team, they are an extension of your brand, they are 100% committed.”
“You understand our culture, and you make it more than just fulfilling a job description and a role, you make it about understanding how the dynamics of people will work together and make a difference.”
“Yacoub is very different. Much more innovative. Much more original.”
“'Elite' is about high performance, it's about delivering the best and being at the top of your game. So, when I think of 'Elite', I think of the best.”
“Jocelyn recruited me back in 1998 and it has forever impacted the course of my professional career.”
“The team lends a real personal touch, taking the time to understand leadership style and cultural fit in order to identify the best possible candidate.”
“To have a team like Yacoub, who stands beside us, educates us, is that partner to help us AND the candidate along the way. That's very hard to find these days.”
“They really embody the brand of the organization and reflect that brand into the market. Something that really differentiates them is the fact that they really focus on client experience, which is important in collaboration, but just as important is the candidate experience.”
“Working with Yacoub is a true partnership, it goes beyond filling the job. Yacoub looks at the entire universe of the candidates and is just as concerned about a personal fit as a professional fit.”
