Lesley Delgado - Owner, Strategic Recruiting Services


Strategic Recruiting Services and Lesley were great to work with! They took the time to understand our needs, reviewed numerous candidates before making recommendations, and the candidates they ultimately presented were all qualified and competent. They saved us tremendous time, and streamlined what would have otherwise been a long and difficult hiring process. We would use them again without hesitation and would recommend their services to any of our business partners.

One phone call to Lesley with Strategic Recruiting Services was all it took.

SRS quickly engaged as our outsourced recruiting service helping us find the skillset, attitude, and cultural fit we wanted to bring on our team. Lesley and her team spent nearly two years building our human resources department and eventually replaced themselves with an internal hire.

Sonitrol Great Lakes appreciates and values our relationship. Thank you,

I had the pleasure of meeting Lesley during a virtual networking group - There was something about her positive energy and thoughtful contribution to the conversation that I knew she would be someone that I would enjoy working with.

When we were looking to fill a pivotal position within our organization - Lesley came to mind immediately. This was our first experience with a recruiting service and by the amazing experience, we had with Lesley and her Strategic Recruiting Services team we have added this firm to our circle of trusted business partners. Leslie walked us through every step.

She provided us with valuable market information, the specifics we needed to consider when hiring in the midst of a pandemic. We received candid feedback from her and her guidance throughout the selection process was invaluable. Lesley and her team were in regular communication with us on the search, screening, and interview process.

When an applicant was presented to us all the work done beforehand was laid out and presented in such a wonderful way. The candidates we were given to consider were individuals worthy of our time and consideration.

My one and only wish is that I would have partnered with Lesley sooner. Never again will I take on the search and evaluation process for future openings. This process was effortless, it was reassuring and extremely rewarding all due to Lesley's leadership and communication skills.
