Due Diligence

“Hedley May have won the confidence of our leadership group. They are effective, discreet and professional, bringing an objective, thoughtful strategic perspective to our hiring decisions that we highly value.”


Failed hires are extremely costly not only in financial terms but also in management time, reputational fall-out and the disruption to strategy.

Hedley May ‘de-risks’ critical hiring decisions by testing the supporting business plan against our clients’ markets and their competitors.

We provide independent assurance on the technical ability, business development skills, management capability, career motivations and personalities of individuals and teams as well as advise on risk mitigation and the most effective integration strategies to accelerate the impact of new hires.
