We’re not like most recruitment agencies. Here’s why.

After years of witnessing unsavory practices among recruitment agencies, SDHRC CEO, Julie Wootton, had the vision to turn the recruitment and HR world on its head. As a result, she built an HR company founded on the values of doing “good” business with everyone it touches – including clients, colleagues, and community.

Learn how our unique values and culture drive all our business decisions.

In the land of SDHRC, a culture of positivity and support drives our business model. We’re for treating our people with dignity and respect. We are also for making sure our clients get exceptional services tailored to their individual needs. Of course, we are for finding top, “right-fit” talent and keeping them happy at all levels of the organization. But this is what we’re against: price-gouging, “phoning it in,” and relying on one-size-fits-all services. With SDHRC, we promise you’ll get a fully committed team who are on a mission to delight.

Pioneering a work/life balance model for the 21st century

In building our team of top-tier recruiters and HR specialists, we realized there was a wealth of untapped talent who were eager to share their skills and knowledge, but who needed the flexibility to make it work with their family obligations. Thus, the SDHRC “mom bench” was born. We believe in families first and are proving every day that work/life balance is not only possible but a key ingredient to making a business thrive.

The 3 C’s: Clients, Colleagues & Community


Here at SDHRC, we spend a lot of time talking about the three C’s: clients, colleagues and community. With every decision we make, we first ask ourselves, does it benefit all three C’s?


Doing “good” business with our clients is the foundation of our company, and by doing good, we mean doing the right thing. We believe in honesty, integrity and the power of business karma.


We created a supportive environment in which all of our employees work as a team and have each other’s backs. This means everything from sharing knowledge and experience to filling in when someone has a family emergency.


In the spirit of do-gooding, part of our culture is to hire people who share our vision. We enthusiastically encourage community involvement among our team and are proud to support a number of local charities.
