Ashton212 is where you become a hiring hero.

Right talent. Right time.

Your business is a high stakes game when you need a problem solved or a project completed and the clock is ticking. That's when we do our best work.

We know that finding the right talent is more than getting warm bodies in seats. It's about strategically maximizing resources to deliver what you need. But, in the heat of the moment, it's easy to forget the details. That's why we focus on identifying the best talent to complement the skills of your employees and quickly integrate them onto their assignment.

We are passionate about the art of matchmaking. It's what we do every day. And we do it very well.


How We Do Professional Staffing

Knowing our people. Consultants who excel as Ashton Associates aren't filling in between "real" jobs. They actively prefer the consulting life and most have been with us for years. Based on what you tell us you're looking for, we find the person who fits seamlessly into your organization and culture. 75% of the consultants we place are extended on their engagements.


Valuing continual development. To keep our Associates conversant with the latest trends in their areas of expertise, we are developing Subject Matter Expert Roundtables™ provide opportunities for co-learning to our consultant community.


Valuing inclusivity. We know that brains, productivity, collaboration, results and success are found in both sexes, all ages, and every race and ethnicity. Our Inclusivity Choice™ approach gives you the opportunity to choose from one of the most diverse pools of consulting talent available anywhere. We are fully intentional in our decision to bring your organization the best, most skillful candidates.


Ashton Associates

To make the right match, we actively recruit diversely skilled associates from a community of available talent that we call the Professional Workforce 3.0. From this available pool, we make available to our clients:

  • Career consultants who over many years have created a portfolio of successful client  engagements
  • Baby Boomers who have "retired" but still possess valuable intellectual capital and are looking for ways to enhance your operations
  • GenXers who defined our new work-life balance paradigm
  • Millennials who are ready to lead the development of new processes.

Ashton212 makes the best use every kind of talent, and we get a thrill out of matching the right people with the right assignments—short-term, long-term, and everything in between.
