The Challenge

Chomps disrupted the meat stick category with a healthy snack alternative. Fully self-funded, the founders had a clear idea of the kind of company they wanted to create. When it came time to scale up, they started with culture and values and built from there. But finding the right people proved difficult. Doing the search themselves took too much time away from building their business. Traditional recruiters didn’t understand what they were trying to create, which meant the founders wasted a lot of time with the wrong candidates. They needed a recruiting partner that was aligned with their goals. Someone who truly “got it.”

The Solution

Creative Alignments was the perfect partner. The hourly model gave Chomps the ability to have a collaborative extension of their team that they could turn on and off as needed. With aligned incentives, CA understands the founder’s vision, culture and unique niche. Chomps was finally able to get traction finding the candidates they had been looking for all along, across all roles and all functions.

“Creative Alignments truly is an extension of our team and we lean on them for a lot. Our incentives are aligned. They understand the culture and business we are trying to create and the kinds of employees who can help us get there. With their hourly model, we are getting better candidates than we ever have, and saving money at the same time.”
