Helping Companies Hire

Better, Smarter, Faster

2X the Productivity of Your Recruiting Team


Recruiting Diagnostic + C-Suite-Ready Recruiting Strategy

We will evaluate your function through the lens of people, process and technology. This includes examining every aspect of your current recruiting process and an assessment of your tech stack – where it’s helping vs. hindering your function.

We will then design a forward-thinking strategy of the absolute highest caliber. We focus on the removal of inefficiencies, elimination of key-man risk, automation, transparency, scalability, and cost savings.  

Typical client outcomes include an increase in throughput by over 30%, cost savings opportunities up to 55%, and positive trending related to critical recruiting metrics.

What you will get with a Beacon Lane Diagnostic:

  • 18-month, C-suite-ready, Talent Acquisition strategy (we are expert storytellers!)
  • Prioritized Solutions Matrix to support that strategy 
  • Redefined KPIs and SLAs
  • Critical points of risk and gaps
  • Clearly defined and detailed opportunities for further optimization and innovation


Your Fully Optimized, Successful ATS Implementation

Your ATS is at the center of your recruiting function. You simply can’t operate without it.

Beacon Lane is the go-to organization for leading ATS implementations across the globe. We become an extension of your team and work with all ATS providers to ensure that you have the most elegant solution.

Most failed implementations are the result of trying to automate too fast and trying to automate the process as it is today. Beacon Lane has a 100% implementation success rate. This is because we spend the time required to optimize your process before designing your solution.

Your ATS implementation is an extremely visible investment that requires an acute attention to detail. We are global experts in this space and will manage your implementation from beginning to end, including all of your metrics, communications and change management.



Let Us Find Your Slate of Qualified, Interested Candidates

One of the most difficult aspects of recruiting is sheer volume. There are 250 applicants, on average, for every job that is posted. There is a difference between sourcing candidates and sourcing the right candidates. This is only magnified for managerial and more senior positions.

As global recruiting experts with a wide and deep network, Beacon Lane is able to source qualified, interested candidates for you. As your outsourced sourcing partner, we engage with candidates on your behalf and conduct pre-screen interviews. We then present you with a slate of candidates and stay engaged with you while you conduct interviews and make hiring decisions.

Our Sourcing Solutions are extremely customized. We become an extension of your team, saving you time and money while applying world-class recruiting expertise to your hiring function.



Executive Coaching for Talent Leaders

As both a coach and consultant, Elaine is sought after for her ability to hear what isn’t being said to help Talent/HR leaders reach higher levels of awareness and behavior. She is gifted in her ability to quickly cut through roadblocks and limiting mindsets to move clients forward with a renewed sense of confidence and clarity.

Having spent 20 years in global Talent roles, Elaine specializes in working with CHROs, Heads of Talent, HR Leaders, and high potential HR managers across industries, bringing a deep understanding of the complexities that come with roles of this magnitude.  

Elaine’s coaching hinges around 10 key accelerators, designed to first connect her clients with their unique brilliance while also finding extreme clarity in what holds them back from realizing their full potential. From there, clients work with Elaine to apply these learnings within the context of the organization, with an acute focus on leadership capabilities, innovation, and strategic growth.



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.

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.”
