Recruiting Reinvented

Creative Alignments is disrupting an archaic recruiting industry, using our time-based, cost effective model that creates a flexible talent partnership with our clients. 


As opposed to traditional percentage-of-salary recruiting firms who are costly and candidate-aligned, CA partners with client companies to tap into great talent while saving money with our transformative, pay-by-the-hour process. 

What we DO:
  • Produce cost-effective hires (across functions) by billing only for our time
  • Use mad skills to find exceptional talent via our sophisticated & collaborative team
  • Work when you need us, as company growth ebbs and flows
What we DO NOT do:
  • Work on commission or charge pricey percentage fees for placements
  • Follow an old school model that is outdated
  • Fluff up resumes
  • Act as if one size fits all in recruiting
You could spend up to 30% of salary on your next hire. Or you can use our time-based-recruiting™ model,  and spend an average of less than 10% for each position hired.

Our Story

Peggy Shell founded Creative Alignments in 2010 with a firm belief that the traditional recruiting landscape needed a better alternative. Equipped with a unique hourly billing model and a powerful client-centric approach, Creative Alignments is taking the recruiting industry by storm. Our offices in Boulder and Denver serve growth companies throughout the U.S. with a special affinity for Colorado's entrepreneurial Front Range.

Having grown quickly ourselves over the past 5 years, the Creative Alignments team is one that embodies creativity over convention, and proactivity over inertia. We love creating meaningful partnerships with our clients and having a lot of fun along the way! We are a team of engaged, committed and fun recruiters who have many years of experience in Recruiting and Human Resources.
