We offer engaged and contingent search, covering legal, IT solutions, and litigation support.

Our company launch took place in 1998. Haystack has assembled a team of top recruiters by seeking out enthusiastic individuals with whom they had formed long-term personal and professional relationships. This family atmosphere complements our commitment to strong personal and corporate values. We are as dedicated to our families and communities as we are to our clients, and that has made the difference in how we are esteemed by our business partners.

We offer engaged and contingency search, covering legal, IT solutions, and litigation support. We also have recent experience in business valuation, software and healthcare.

We are proud to be building companies, enhancing careers and forging great relationships with our clients, candidates and employees. 

Excerpts From Haystack References Page

"I have worked with recruiters on contingency and retained searches for over 20 years. Dave Staats has been a pleasure to work with, ethical, and effective. I would recommend him without reservation. Dave makes the effort to understand our requirements and to send me as few candidates as possible until the right one is hired. He frequently wins our business because he is so fast to locate candidates. On a recent search he found a multi-lingual (German and English) candidate that had the right experience and lived a few kilometers from our UK office. This was the second candidate he sent over, and after only two weeks of searching." COO Enterprise Software Client

Director of Business Development at an industry leader in global legal support says

I just wanted to thank you for doing a wonderful job in matching me with a fantastic company.  I just returned from a visit to their New York office and I have to say I am very impressed with the whole outfit.  A great company that is very organized with fantastic employees who are very welcoming and offer wonderful family-type of atmosphere. I cannot thank you enough.

Director of Business Development
"Joel contacted me at a time when I needed to make a change for my family. I get calls from recruiters often and generally the conversation is predictable...but not this time. Joel is definitely a cut above and it shows in the way he handles both clients and prospects. In addition to being highly responsive, he is very professional and detailed oriented. Throughout the interview process, he and his staff are on top of every little thing to ensure that it goes smoothly for everyone. And it doesn't hurt that they're nice people to deal with. I can honestly recommend Joel and his team to anyone looking for placement or looking to fill an open position within their company."
