Life at Lucas Group

There’s more to life than work. We’ve all heard it, and many of us want to experience it. But not enough companies live by it. Lucas Group does.

We believe that to be productive, effective, and motivated inside the office, our lives outside the office should be respected, protected and encouraged. From informal breakroom lunches to parking deck parties, and from afternoons at the ballpark to team volunteer projects, we nurture and maintain a culture that promotes both successful work and enjoyable play.

 

A key factor in our success is our culture. We’re the antidote to business as usual in the recruiting industry, and we passionately believe that a job needn’t be drudgery to be fulfilling and financially successful.

We also understand that candor, in the context of executive recruiting consulting, will ultimately yield superior long-term results. Many of us have actually turned down a client contract or discouraged a candidate from accepting a less-than-ideal placement. We did so because we felt compelled to act in their best interests. Sometimes you lose a fee. But, more often, you strengthen a long-term relationship.

That’s who we are. We are collegial, collaborative and committed to doing the right thing for each of our clients and candidates. We are professional, passionate and high performance. And we always have an eye out for new colleagues–people who share our vision of company and personal success.

We are where you need to be.

Spend some time reading the profiles of our associates and you’ll quickly see that the interests and activities our recruiters engage in outside of the office are wonderfully varied.  

From gardening and triathlons to motorcycles and mystery novels, Lucas Group believes that in order to perform your best inside the office, you need the time and space to explore the things that bring you joy and satisfaction outside of the office as well.

Whether it’s coaching your child’s soccer team, playing harmonica in a country band or volunteering at your local soup kitchen, you will have the freedom to enjoy your life in all aspects. When you join the team at Lucas Group, you join a collection of interests and a wide variety of talents…supported and encouraged by those around you.

At its roots, executive recruiting is a service completed on behalf of another. The same internal drive that pushes us to serve our clients and candidates with thoughtfulness and excellence also encourages us to serve our communities with the equal respect and dedication.

Since the early days of Lucas Group, our associates have committed themselves, their time and their talents to organizations and activities that benefit others. From civic organizations and alumni groups to religious communities and disaster-relief organizations, Lucas Group and its associates believe in helping others step up and step out.

As a company, we support these endeavors and encourage our associates to engage with and remain active in the organizations that matter most to them.

We were founded in the belief that our military servicemen and servicewomen have earned and deserve the opportunity to reengage in civilian life in a rewarding and prosperous manner. Today’s Lucas Group family – which includes dozens of U.S. veterans – serves as evidence that our founding belief remains strong. With both our shared history and veteran officemates in mind, Lucas Group is proud to support the Wounded Warriors Project (WWP). WWP’s mission is to honor and empower U.S. soldiers wounded on or after September 11, 2001 by raising awareness for the needs of injured service members; to help injured service members aid and assist each other; and to provide unique and direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured servicemen and servicewomen as they adjust to their new normal and achieve new triumphs.

In addition to WWP, Lucas Group recruiters provide volunteer and financial support to other non-profit organizations – both at a corporate level as well as through individual office locations. From Atlanta to Los Angeles, Lucas Group associates are a strong, positive force in our communities.
