JBK Associates delivers full-service executive talent solutions across a wide spectrum of industries and functional responsibilities with a special focus on diversity. In the talent acquisition landscape, it is essential to understand the importance of diversity in the workplace.
Award-winning and certified woman-owned, JBK has earned a national reputation for innovation and diversity within the executive recruitment industry. CEO Julie Kampf founded the firm in 2003 to raise the bar in executive search and has built a team distinguished by more than 50 years of combined executive search and human resources experience, a fierce dedication to service, and an unparalleled commitment to diversity and inclusion.
That’s why we outperform the rest. Consider our search metrics:
But the metric that means the most to us is this: a large majority of our business comes from existing clients. Our clients trust us as an extension of their own team, and they turn to JBK for the world's best executive recruitment, leadership skills development, talent management and retention solutions.
In our view, not only is it critical to work hard and deliver results, it is equally as important for our clients to work with an executive search firm that is responsible; at JBK that means a constant commitment to workforce diversity, environmental sustainability, and philanthropy.
Our passion for workplace diversity shapes everything we do, from the talent we present to our clients to the way we’ve created our own work environment.
Sustainability is part of our pledge as a member of the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest social responsibility program, and we’re working every day to reduce our environmental impact.
Philanthropy is a founding principle of our firm, and each team member gives back individually and as part of the group. Organizations that have benefited from our commitment include the food rescue program Table to Table, as well as the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, the Susan G. Komen Foundation, Guiding Eyes for the Blind, Habitat for Humanity, the Make-a-Wish Foundation, Big Brothers & Big Sisters, The Seeing Eye, the Central Unitarian Church and Tomorrow’s Children’s Fund.
Creating an environment centered on workforce diversity and inclusion is one of the top priorities in the workplace today. JBK Associates has partnered with some of the top Fortune 100 companies to help make the diversity and inclusion vision a reality.
Our results are second to none: we provide access to diverse candidates who are included in nearly 90% of our slates, which leads to a 70% placement rate of completed searches. This extends to our own culture, where diversity is a top priority.
That’s why we’re an industry leader, honored with the Diversity Leadership Award from Profiles in Diversity Journal, named to five separate top business lists by diversitybusiness.com, and sought after by venues such as the Multicultural Forum on Workplace Diversity and the Linkage Summit on Leading Diversity. It’s all part of the vision of CEO Julie Kampf, whose own credentials include serving on the Board of Visitors for the Howard University John H. Johnson School of Communications and earning the Women Worth Watching award from Profiles in Diversity Journal.
