“Sapphire is a truly executive search firm with a vision of giving best of its services to clients. In order to fulfill its commitments, Sapphire believes that each one of its employees carry the same thinking and vision within. So it understands the importance of sharpening the skills of its employees and making them informed about the latest trend and practices in the leadership hiring space. What makes it different from other search firms is that it focuses on overall development of its employees by giving enough freedom and at the same time motivates them to contribute on all the areas of its work – be it contributing in hiring new clients, Search/Execution strategy, client & candidate management and last but not the least brand building exercises. What I really like in Sapphire is that the trust of Management on me, which is always a morale booster. They are always open to hear suggestions from us and if any of them is liked then give free hands to go ahead and implement it. Above all, I would say that we have an awesome team in Sapphire, which is like a family for me.”

“Having coming from Corporate HR, Sapphire opened the doors of Executive Search for me. It gave me an exposure to expand my reach with stalwarts across different industries. I honed my networking skills, my ability to connect and communicate with CxO level people. At Sapphire, the focus on processes and systems is deeply ingrained, this to large extent made me look Search as a science more than an art. SHS also had an impact on personal life as much as it did on my professional life. The office environment was more like working in friendly environment with bunch of professionals. Sapphire gave me some friends for a lifetime. My stint at Sapphire will always be a big milestone in my professional journey which I will definitely cherish all my life.”

“At Sapphire, each one of us are empowered to contribute / add value to any function, be it execution or Business Development. With the support of our Partners, any member at SHS is equipped to walk into any prospective client for business. With our policy of collaborative working, one can contribute at every level.When I joined Sapphire as Sr. Consultant my role was more to do with execution and managing candidate side of the search. In more than half a decade of my tenure in SHS, I have graduated to coordinating with clients, managing searches independently, managing Key Accounts and active business generation. With the opportunity that SHS gives us, combined with the motivation and intelligence, one can touch the skies at SHS.”
