A New Approach to Compensation & Benefits Recruitment

With in-house experience from Cisco Systems, Intellectual Ventures, Affymetrix, National Semiconductor, Novellus Systems, and Northrop Grumman, Nancy Ellington saw a unique opportunity in the Compensation & Benefits search marketplace. For years, she utilized several of the region’s leading human resources search firms when filling critical mid- and senior-level compensation and benefits openings. These firms are good to this day, with strong people and respectable search processes.


However, Nancy saw an opportunity to do Compensation & Benefits searches differently. She passionately believed in not only creating a unique boutique compensation and benefits consulting firm, but one that also provides specialized compensation and benefits placement. Her recruiting team is led by former Compensation & Benefits practitioners and staffed by highly trained search professionals, who employ innovative tools and processes. With their deep understanding of Compensation and Benefits, they understand terms such as burn rate and overhang. Unlike other human resources search firms, Compass Total Rewards provides a unique and industry-redefining search experience for candidates and clients alike.
