Your success is driven by talented people.

Our Time-Based Recruiting® model is better at finding great talent quickly and cost effectively. You only pay for the time it takes to find the employees you’re looking for. You pay no commissions or retainers.

A team of senior recruiters is dedicated to your goals.

Our model sets up an enjoyable, transparent and collaborative partnership to find you quality talent. We are your internal recruiting team – one with deep industry connections and knowledge, recruiting expertise and tools, and the ability to scale up when you need us, and be gone when you don’t.

The money you save on your next hire becomes an investment in your long-term growth.

We partner with you to drive your success. Because we’re not focused on the short-term windfall of a commission after each hire, we’ve got your back for the long haul. We’re constantly solving your hiring challenges with you.

You could spend up to 30% of salary on your next hire. Or you can use our time-based-recruiting® model,  and spend about half of that 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. Her solution was a unique hourly billing model and powerful client-centric approach – one that has led Creative Alignments to become a significant leader and trusted partner among growing companies.

Our experienced team recruits across all functions in the natural products, food, consumer goods, technology, professional services and manufacturing industries. We have offices in Boulder, Denver, Chicago, and Austin to serve companies nationally.

"The Creative Alignments team is rock solid and does a great job accelerating our hiring success during critical growth phases of our company. Anyone looking to scale an organization rapidly, without sacrificing hiring quality, would be well served by working with CA."
— Dave Cahill,
VP of Strategic Alliances, SolidFire
"The decision to outsource the exempt talent acquisition needs for a multinational company was huge for us, but thankfully, our trusted recruiting partner, Creative Alignments, has made the process seamless for over 2 years now. The construction / manufacturing industry was a new foray for Creative Alignments, but their bright and responsive team was quick to dive in, do their research and learn our business. With their client-aligned model, they've filled more than 30 positions for us across a broad range of functions and U.S. locations. We couldn't be happier with their work!"
— Edward Hernandez,
Food & Consumer Products
"We're thrilled to have a recruiting partner that is not only a joy to work with but continues to identify and secure exceptional candidates from within the food and beverage industry. Their unique model has saved us a significant amount of money compared to other recruiting options, while still unearthing impressive candidates. Creative Alignments thought about our brand and organizational needs as if they were in-house. We are big fans!"
— Brook Eddy,
Founder & CEO, Bhakti Chai
Professional Services
"I have been trusting Creative Alignments Founder & CEO Peggy Shell for the past fourteen years with understanding our company and supporting our personnel needs in the form of HR and all our hiring. As a busy agency with billable employees, it's been great to have them to hand off this time-intensive work."
— Tre Musco,
CEO, Tesser
