Client Services

We get to know you and your brand to identify, assess, develop and deliver the talent you need to succeed.

The ROI Difference

We work across a broad spectrum of industries. Our clients consistently compliment us about our personal touch and their resulting experience. A primary objective is enhancing our client’s business and employment brands. Through networks developed over many years, combined with deep research for every search we undertake, we seek out passive high achievers for our clients. Our work is a successful blend of art, science, combined with full transparency and a practice of communicating often with our clients.

Together, we can find the solution to your talent challenges.

Executive & Professional Search

At ROI Search Partners, we combine insight, intuition, and experience to form a creative and truly unique approach. This enables us to deliver the high achievers who fit your culture and requirements. We conduct extensive research on each assignment to ensure a thorough, comprehensive process, including the identification of passive candidates. We tailor every search to the different goals, needs, and preferences of your organization. This experience focuses on finding the best ‘fit’ – and can include detailed candidate profiles, references, and assessments – personalized to your role and organization. Our search offerings are just as unique as the organizations with which we partner.

Executive & Professional Search

Balancing the talent needs of your organization may require a contract employee. Whether that is filing in for a leave, supporting growth or expansion efforts, or evaluating the need for a full-time position – ROI Search Partners can help. Our contract candidates are thoroughly screened and interviewed, ensuring a high-achieving employee with the right combination of skills and cultural fit. Our goal is to identify individuals who will excel in their role as a contract employee and keep your business moving forward.


As the need for flexibility and agility in the workplace continues to grow, managing contractors and payrolled workers has become a more complex challenge for many organizations. ROI Search Partners’ payroll service is suitable for clients who have found a resource directly, but prefer to engage them as a contractor. In these cases, we perform any required pre-employment screening and subsequent contractor and payroll management. The contractors are employees of ROI Search Partners for the duration of the assignment. 



ROI Search Partners utilizes PXT Select, a powerful selection assessment that measures a candidate’s thinking style, behavioral traits and interests: three areas that impact an individual’s approach to situations in the workplace.  The assessment results equip us with easy-to-understand information about the candidate, and help us target the right questions to strengthen the interview process.  That’s the kind of information that puts the right candidate in the right job. 

Customized Solutions

Just as we tailor every search to the different goals, needs, and preferences of your organization we also customize solutions! We can be a seamless extension of your talent acquisition team anyplace within the talent acquisition process – from sourcing to onboarding or anywhere in between. What might that look like? We will work together to find the right mix of services!

ROI Search Partners exceeds expectations – and our clients notice.

Paula - M&A Project Manager, Manna Pro Products

“Jenny is awesome to work with. With very little direction she was able to bring quality cndidates to the table. She is like an extension of our recruiting team vetting candidates for both capability and culture fit.”

Margo - VP Total Rewards/Payroll/HCM, Schnucks Markets

“Jenny was very dilgent in finding us a candidate that met our needs. She actually thought outside the box by bringing forward an attorney but it ended up being a great idea and we ultimately hired her. It was a pleasure working with your team. I hope I don’t need you again, but if I am in need of a recruitment partners, it would definitely be ROI.”

Hannah - Creator of Experiences, Nirvana Investments

“It is rare that you come across stand out talent like Marcy and the team at ROI Search Partners. I had the pleasure of working with ROI on our latest opening. Marcy’s ability to manage the complexity of the position, along with her professionalism and expertise made a dramatic difference in a successful searrch. I highly recommend ROI Search Partners as a trusted source for hiring the right talent.”

Hera - VP Human Resources, Gateway Region YMCA

“Throughout my HR career I’ve had the great fortune of working with a number of outstanding search firms with talented recruiters but none as dynamic and engaging as Jenny. She’s a master of her craft and I so appreciate her collaborative and strategic approach. I look forward to continuing to keep in touch with Jenny and perhaps working together again in the future. In fact, we are scheduled to have lunch today! I look forward to meeting Jenny in person.”

Bonnie - CEO, Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri

“It was a joy and pleasure working with Jenny and ROI! Previously, we used two other search firms, neither one made us feel like a priority or seemed to genuinely listen to what we were looking for in candidates. Jenny was constantly moving the process forward each week, helping us keep the momentum and presented a fresh set of candidates, not a recycled list like other firms have done. She truly listened to what we were looking for and helped us think outside the box for potential candidates. We couldn’t be happier with the two new hires and have already referred ROI to others who ask for a search firm recommendation. Thank you to Jenny and all at ROI!”

Bob - VP Human Resources, Equifax

“Marcy and the team worked seamlessly behind the scenes digging up the best talent available. I was highly impressed with all of the final candidates they put forward and I’m excited about the choice we made because the cultural fit and the quality of the hire has been spot on. We already have them working on my next search.”

Nora - VP Human Resources, Lanter Delivery Systems

“I recently had the pleasure to work with Jenny at ROI on a position for my team. Because of our organizations growth plans we were looking for strong utility players. I’ve gotten feedback in the past that I’m sometimes asking for too much of a “unicorn.” Jenny was diligent in taking my feedback and sourcing for the right skills, experience and personality to fit in perfectly with my team.”

Meegan- HR Generalist, Esse Health

“ROI was able to quickly identify qualified candidates for us to review for two temp-to-hire positions we had available in our Accounting department. Marcy Whelan was extremely easy to work with and prompt with her responses, communication, and follow-up. We ultimately went with an Accounts Payable candidate sent to us from ROI and we will definitely work with them again on any future needs!”

Lindsey - E-Commcere Director, Scubs & Beyond

“I felt that Jenny did an excellent job of capturing the job requirements quickly and succinctly. She was able to dive into our local market and came back with candidates that were an exact fit….and in under a week!”

Joe - President & CEO, Marygrove

“I could not have asked for a better experience. Jenny was high energy and on top of it throughout the entire process. She provided quality and timely updates along the way and a detailed synopsis of the interviews that she had with each of the recommended candidates. I greatly appreciated the way she worked the communication between Marygrove and the candidates. By far the best and most customer centric experience that I have had with a search firm.”

Diana - Anonymous Company

“Jenny listened carefully to really understand our situation. She offered some solutions, beyond what I was initially thinking, which helped as we were screening candidates. Jenny also kept the process simple, eliminating the need to jump through hoops to have this partnership. And lastly, she found candidates for us. All of her actions helped us move our process along quickly. Our Talent Acquisition team is now fully staffed, and this improved our ability to repond to the staffing needs in Operations.”

“Marcy was fantastic to work with, a great thought partner, and very responsive.”


“The team at ROI is fantastic. Just a few days after hiring Marcy, we were already interviewing top-caliber candidates. Marcy made sure the entire process ran smoothly, while not sacrificing quailty or thoroughness. We are extremely happy with our decision and are confident that we wouldn’t have found them without Marcy’s help. We will definitely work with ROI again for our future executive searches. Thank you!!”


“Working with ROI Search Partners was a great partnership to find St. Louis based talent. The kickoff meeting was very effective to get Jenny calibrated on what I was looking for in a successful cacndidate in terms of experience and fit with our organization. jenny was able to start supplying good candidates within two weeks of kickoff along with an executive summary of each. Jenny was responsive through the recruitment cycle to keep the candidates moving through various stages of our recruiting process.”

Tim - Anonymous Company

“I learned a long time agon that recruiting good people takes a lot of work and is a partnership. I have a lot of my time invested in the recruiting for these two positions, so I am thrilled that we have two very good new employees that are going to be strong leaders in our business going forward. It has been a pleasure working with you on these roles. You were closely calibrated on what we were looking for and we were able to find those candidates that “checked all of the boxes.”

Steve - Anonymous Company

“We had used another partner for a couple months, but in just a couple weeks it was ROI who LISTENED to our key needs, sourced several great candidates and landed the job in a quarter of the time. For as simple as it may sound, they simply did one of the best jobs we have seen in first seeking to understand, then finding high probablity matches. ROI is a partner of the future for us!”
