Helping Companies Hire 

Better, Smarter, Faster

2X the Productivity of Your Recruiting Team



Beacon Lane is a woman-owned global management consultancy helping organizations transform their recruiting functions for optimal hiring practices and outcomes. Enterprise CHROs choose Beacon Lane for our rigor, expertise and world-class solutions, once considered reserved for larger consultancies, along with our unprecedented degree of curiosity and humanity.

We are insatiably curious about how your organization hires and even more interested in helping you achieve the ultimate goal of hiring talent of exceptional quality at the right cost. Whether it’s a full recruiting transformation, a process optimization, or participation in our Recruiting Leadership Program, we are focused on sustainable solutions. Beacon Lane provides value to our clients long before they become clients and long after our engagements end. This is who we are at the core. 

Quickly-Built Collaboration

I can’t say enough about Elaine and Beacon Lane. What impressed me most about Elaine was her ability to quickly understand our business needs, challenge the old way of thinking and build collaboration within the stakeholders to improve process. In doing so, she and her team guided us down the journey of onboarding the best ATS for our business. Without Elaine’s guidance, planning, and holding to deliverables, I’m convinced we would have spent considerably more time vetting products and in the end I’m not at all certain we would have chosen the best product for us. One of the greatest talent acquisition minds I’ve had the pleasure of working with, hands down.

Best of Both Worlds

Engaging with Beacon Lane and a Big 4 consultancy gave us the best of both worlds when implementing our global ATS. We needed a partner who knew this space better than anyone else - and that's exactly what we got with Beacon Lane. Beacon Lane was hired to help oversee the design of our global ATS. Elaine stood in as our eyes and voice - ensuring that the system being designed for UST Global would support an optimized state of recruiting. She challenged the status quo while taking into consideration the geographical and business variances that the system needed to support. With Beacon Lane's input and direction, I am convinced we saved a considerable amount of time and money that otherwise would have been spent on rework post implementation.

With Us From Beginning to End

Randstad North America took on a significant recruiting optimization project in which we migrated to a new applicant tracking system, centralized our internal Talent Acquisition team, and re-engineered processes for efficiency and impact. This work was over a year in duration and Elaine and her team were with us from beginning to end. With their daily input, support, and guidance, we were able to meet the targets for this effort. Elaine was an extension of our leadership team during this time, engaging with senior leaders, designing solutions, and encouraging our team to think strategically and boldly. She is versatile in her depth of knowledge in the TA space and I highly recommend any company even considering an implementation - technology or process - to engage with Beacon Lane first.

My Departure from Corporate

My Departure from Corporate

I don’t often talk about the departure from my corporate life, partly because I wasn’t sure of the place it held in my current business – until now.


Elaine Davidson is the founder and CEO of Beacon Lane Consulting and the Beacon Lane Career Lounge.

“Before founding Beacon Lane, I spent 20 years leading, designing and implementing recruiting strategies for some of the world’s largest, most complex organizations. I loved the challenge of creating something from nothing, seeing the possibilities, and putting the countless pieces together to form an elegant hiring solution. Yet I craved being able to do this for more organizations and from a different perspective.

My vision – always – was to create a space where rigor, creativity and humanity could connect. I set out to build a global recruiting management consultancy that would bring brilliant minds together to solve the world’s most complex recruiting challenges – but one that looked different than where I came from.

Beacon Lane is that company.”
