What we do
The Lindquist Group is a leading residential staffing consultancy. We offer retained and contingent placement services, consulting services and operational support for all residential and childcare specialties.
Where we operate
The Lindquist Group operates from four principal offices in the United States, including Atlanta, Georgia, Greenwich, Connecticut, New York, New York, and Palm Beach, Florida. In the past five years, we have worked with clients in 44 states. We have also completed numerous sourcing assignments in Western Europe and maintain licensure in London for future engagements there.
Our scale and scope of work
In the past ten years, we have conducted over 10,000 searches for private service professionals across the full spectrum of domestic staffing disciplines. Our present database includes over 15,000 candidates. In recent years, we have expanded our business to include consulting services, and we are always seeking additional services, people, and operating practices to improve our value proposition to clients and candidates.
How we work
We take pride in operating our business with adherence to four basic values: discretion, integrity, service, and diligence. We have built our business largely through word-of-mouth, and we value the opportunity to serve fair and respectful clients in any way that we can. We also seek to deliver a highly personalized level of service. We prefer to begin every engagement with a client visit, preferably in our client’s home or at one of our offices. We explore the client’s lifestyle objectives, service level requirements, cost objectives and current needs.
Where new staff is needed, we focus on selecting the right people, not the first available. Clients are always short of time, but speed must take a back seat to quality if we are to achieve the best fit. Where client or candidate expectations are out of line with the market, we offer recommendations that will maximize the size of the candidate pool, attract top talent and yield a successful hire…one that lasts. We do not accept every search.
Where staff is already in place, we offer recommendations to get the home running more efficiently. We typically start with clarifying expectations, assessing roles and responsibilities, documenting operating practices, and standardizing administration and performance measurement. We can also assist with employee training, client coaching, or identification of subject matter experts for unique needs. We offer assistance with conflict resolution, exit interviewing and day-to-day administration.
Together, these efforts all serve to reduce headaches and free up more of our clients’ most precious resource, time.
