Framing The Search Assignment

Position: Head of People

Client: $300MM AUM farmland asset manager


The Challenge

This was a newly created position at a company that has invested heavily in cutting-edge technology and their employees — offering their farm workers a starting wage of $20 p/hr., fully paid healthcare, retirement, and parental leave. These strategies have allowed them to generate double-digit returns on investors’ capital. 

The challenge was finding a candidate who had supported a business through a rapid scale while adapting the org structure accordingly through assessments of the HR function and overall process improvements.


The Solution

3P Partners successfully placed a fantastic candidate within 6 months of commencing the search. The successful candidate had a background in asset management where they gained valuable knowledge of scaling a business.

She then took her expertise and assisted in building the HR function at a growing company as their second HR hire. Most importantly, she is an excellent leader, self-starter, and cultural fit for the organization.
