Working with Tuft

Working with Tuft


Tuft & Associates has a very strong history with health care associations and therefore the team understands the personality of these groups and knows many of the professionals and volunteers in this area. Knowledge is key in any business and Tuft has it, along with a hands-on approach which makes the process easy to navigate and succeed.

In today’s competitive marketplace, organizations are looking to recruit and hire the best, most qualified employee. Likewise, candidates are looking to work for an organization that meets their expectations. Partnering with Tuft & Associates to lead this process provides additional assurances to both the organization and the candidate for brokering the ultimate win/win situation.

The fact that Tuft & Associates specializes in understanding and assigning a search consultant who comes from the same or similar academic and disciplinary backgrounds as those of us in nursing and the health professions, means they are able to truly understand the kinds of candidates we are searching for, and can make the contacts to find the right people for us to interview.

Tuft & Associates really understands the client’s business and its challenges because they’ve had the experience running organizations. They’ve walked the road and they infuse their work with their knowledge. The Tuft team provides outstanding and timely communications. In my mind, they really are different from many other firms.

As a candidate working with Tuft, I felt it was a much smoother, informed process. You have a go-to person that responds to inquiries and is always available to answer questions and keep you up-to-date. I felt I had a real advocate. As an employer, I think the initial screening Tuft does is really valuable. You start interviewing the best candidates which gets you to a hire in less time than doing the search on your own.

Tuft made me want to prepare myself to be the best candidate I could be which I did. They briefed and debriefed me on where I could do better, but also gave their client invaluable insight about my strengths. Tuft knew before I did that this was a good fit for me.

Paul D. Bishop, CAE, CEO, Associations of Boards of Certification

Tuft & Associates lived up to–and beyond–our expectations. Every candidate they brought to us was outstanding. Once we made our choice, they stayed with us through the contracting process and well into the transition, making every effort to assure the desired result.

Marvin A. Konstam, MD, Chair, Search Committee, Heart Failure Society of America

Tuft associates were thoughtful and helpful to me as a candidate. I received honest, open and timely communication that was extremely valuable. After accepting the position, I learned that the CSS Board of Directors and the staff felt included and equally good about the communication and follow-through.
