Our rigorous search process starts by gaining a thorough understanding of the strategic goals of each client, the specific leadership roles and competencies needed to meet those goals, and the culture of the organization. The basic nature of the process of sourcing candidates is to identify where the talent is, directly contact and fully qualify them, and if appropriate, introduce specific opportunities. We have developed a proprietary search methodology that allows us to identify the top talent, and JDI specializes in building our client companies by delivering the top 10% of talent across multiple functions in the hospitality industry. Our candidates are found based on a methodology of ‘generalized recruiting’ where recruiters are constantly sourcing and contacting top talent within various levels of the best companies in the industry. This allows us to maintain a world-class network of talent which often shortens cycle time on searches due to the fact that there is already traction towards a qualified search plan – before the plan even starts. The trust established with candidates is evident in the fact that many of JDI’s candidates eventually have become clients, and many clients have continued to use our services for years.


We consider ourselves an extension of your company. We want to help add value to your company by helping uncover the best talent in the industry for you. Our priority is not to “make a placement”, but is to find the best candidate for your company. If we learn something that makes one of our candidate’s the wrong fit for your company, we will be honest and tell you.


We consider ourselves your personal career consultant, and we want to be a part of your success. We will offer you advice and feedback that is honest, candid, and true. We want to contribute to a better life for you, both professionally and personally. We care about your career, your family, and your goals.


We share our career goals, as well as our personal goals, and we hold each other accountable. We do not compromise when it comes to our honesty, integrity, transparency, candidness, and generosity. At JDI, we believe in a work hard, play hard mindset. We strive to instill these traits in our team everyday and extend this attitude into our client and candidate relatiopnships.


As a result of our Servant Leadership, we also believe in helping the community and the world around us. At JDI, we give 10% of all of our profits to non-profit organizations in an effort to better serve our community and the world we live in. Please feel good that by doing business with JDI, you’re a part of this contribution!
