Peggy Shell founded Creative Alignments in 2010 when she saw that quickly growing companies needed a better alternative to traditional recruiting. By creating an hourly Time-Based Recruiting® model, she filled a void, met an important need and, unknowingly, started a trend.
Our heart & Soul
Creative Alignments is dedicated to using our recruiting work as a force for good. We help grow scaling companies that are making an impact through mission, product, positive culture, or social justice and DE+I work.
Partnership is our purpose
Growing a successful team is more than just adding people to a payroll. It’s caring about details and collaborating to intentionally curate a diverse group of people in an inclusive environment to effectively work together to accomplish a shared goal. This partnership is what matters to us. It is core to why we exist. That’s why we are the flexible, transparent recruiting arm for our clients.
We Create a Great Place to Work
For a decade, Peggy has been driven to create a company where people feel valued as individuals, appreciated as contributors, and welcomed into an inclusive environment. She believes work should be additive to one’s life, not a drain. Building a cycle of happy employees and loyal clients, and accolades like Outside’s Best Places to Work are just a few ways we know we’re on to something.
Business as a Force for Good
We are inspired to grow the good by working with companies that are innovating healthier products, more sustainable solutions, more socially just business practices, and more inclusive, equitable and diverse workplaces. We empower these impact-focused companies by helping them hire the people who make a difference.
We Support People-Focused CompanieS
When we are valued, appreciated and empowered at work, we bring that positivity out into the world. We become better partners, parents and community members. This is why we are committed to working with companies that have positive environments — places we ourselves would want to work
We Connect Companies and Diverse Talent
As recruiters who help businesses hire hundreds of employees a year, we are in a unique position to intentionally shape how our clients work toward creating more inclusive, equitable and diverse workplaces. We do this by being an expert consultant throughout the process, making connections to resources, and building diverse candidate pools.
