the most efficient way to add qualified candidates to your talent pipeline

Who We Serve

Surveyed Talent Acquisition professionals say that Talent Sourcing - the effort involved to generate qualified candidates for employment - takes up 38% or more of their time, making it challenging to find time to address candidates at later stages of the funnel. At Makena, we live at the TOP OF THE FUNNEL, so our clients can do the things that they do best.


By managing the “top of the funnel” for our partners, we enable recruiters to focus their time and attention on the bottom of the funnel, providing them with a steady stream of qualified candidates to share with their hiring managers.

TA LEaders

Talent Acquisition leaders lean on us to help make their recruiters more successful by allowing them to focus on higher-touch aspects of the recruiting lifecycle. Recruiters love leaders who free them from the burden of sourcing.

Hiring Managers

Recruiting departments need to demonstrate consistent value to their hiring manager partners and stakeholders, and that starts with a healthy pipeline of talent to be interviewed for open positions. Hiring managers love TA teams that bring them great candidates!


The best leaders know that people are the lifeblood of their organization. In today’s challenging labor market, companies needs to consistently stay ahead of the curve when it comes to talent attraction, and that starts with a sound sourcing strategy.
