BluWave can connect you with top human capital assessment firms that will help you understand your teams and identify the best candidates to drive growth and development.

Leadership Coaching

Tom Brady has all sorts of coaches. Shouldn't your team have the same support as a champion? Whether you’re bringing in a new leadership team or working with a portfolio company’s existing leaders, coaching from an HR advisory services firm can help executives become more effective, communicate more clearly, prepare for sale, and gain a competitive advantage.

Boutique and Specialty Executive Recruiters

It can be challenging and time-consuming to find an executive recruiting firm that meets your needs and budget. The bulge brackets often are not the right tools for the job. BluWave can get you better results and free your time by identifying a private equity-tested boutique executive recruiting firm with expertise in your industry.

Case Studies

Navigating Compensation Structures in a Changing Environment

Business Issue:

An operating company was in the process of changing its go-to-market approach and was unsure how to evolve its compensation plan for its sales team to drive sales in the new operating environment.

BluWave Approach:

BluWave connected the leadership team with a leading pre-vetted boutique compensation advisory firm led by a professional who spent his career managing the compensation practice of a leading up-market consultancy. They deliver world-class insights and results at a cost that is appropriate for middle-market budgets.

Client Benefit/ROI:  

BluWave identified a similarly skilled up-market alternative, but a much more appropriately-priced HR advisor to help manage incentives during a critical period in the company’s growth and development. The PE firm professionals also freed up countless hours while the BluWave team leveraged its network to efficiently connect them to a better resource.

Building HR Processes to Address Post-Merger Growing Pains

Business Issue:

A mid-sized company had recently acquired several of its smaller counterparts, but the lack of consistent HR processes across these companies was hurting its ability to manage the firm effectively.

BluWave Approach:

BluWave connected this client with a boutique HR advisory services firm that specialized in building and implementing custom HR management processes for middle market companies during and after mergers and acquisitions.

Client Benefit/ROI: 

The company knew that inconsistencies existed but didn’t have the network or capacity to identify resources to resolve these unique issues on their own. BluWave was able to save the company valuable time to focus on more pressing aspects of merger integration and move forward with their value creation plan with more speed and certainty.
