This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. With Utah’s economy enjoying record high employment levels, finding the right employees can be challenging. Paul Ahlstrom, co-founded IsoTalent, explains why many companies are turning to his firm for help in hiring topflight candidates.


Utah’s economy is booming, and our unemployment rate is 2.6 percent. That is great for employees, but for companies looking to hire, that can make it difficult to find people with the right talent, skill, experience, and the right values to fill important positions.

At IsoTalent, we created a better way to align the interests of our clients with the recruiters and job seekers. First, instead of charging 20 to 40 percent of the candidate salary, we charge by the hour, like an accountant, which results in a 50 to 70 percent savings compared to our competitors. Second, we give all the stakeholders visibility and transparency at each step of the recruiting process. That’s why employers “in search of talent” turn to us at IsoTalent.

Using innovative technology, we accelerate the hiring process and produce 7-10 times the number of quality candidates for each job opening, compared to traditional methods. We recruit locally, nationally, and internationally and have placed top-notch candidates in hundreds of firms. Go to for more information.


Utah has added nearly 56,000 jobs in the past two years and there are now over 1.6 million people working in our state. If you are “in search of talent,” contact the hiring experts at I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
