Why Ascend 5?

Ascend5 is a woman-owned company that was developed to help companies that care about their people and understand that they are their best asset.  We help companies affordably scale up quickly through optimized recruiting and outplacement (reverse recruiting) services that are talent-centric so that employees are excited to come work for you, understand that you will develop them along the way, and if your company has to scale down for any reason, you will help them transition on well. It's about being transparent and building trust.

Our fair fee recruitment model and outplacement (reverse recruitment model) will protect your employer brand and allow you to continue to attract talent throughout your growth.


I wish you the best,
