Riviera Advisors came in as our project manager on a sizable implementation that required analysis of process, workflows, technology review and the like. They teamed with our business partners and vendors to ensure timely execution. Riviera managed the project and later identified a consultant to step in as interim Senior Director of Talent Acquisition to ensure we didn’t miss a beat. Riviera was instrumental in assisting us with our search to fill the position and would call upon Riviera Advisors again in a heartbeat.
We utilized Jeremy Eskenazi to evaluate and restructure our corporate staffing function and processes. Jeremy is not only a successful business partner, but a successful business “player” as well. By this I mean he delves into the issues with the organization and makes our challenges, his challenges. In addition, he creatively and strategically analyzes the gaps, using theory and practical processes which results in useful staffing tools and very real applications.

No matter how experienced an HR professional, there is always a time when you need to do a reality check on your HR Staffing environment. Riviera Advisors enabled Availability Services to gather that information. Further that information was key to establishing a plan to enable “Staffing & Selection” to become an even better partner to our Hiring Managers. Most importantly, they shared our sense of urgency to keep the project on task. Their sense of urgency has been there throughout the process. I told them “You’ve been my HR Life Raft”.
Jeremy is by far the best in the business. Jeremy has designed the talent strategy and related processes at two global companies for me. Jeremy’s work has assisted both companies in saving millions of dollars but more importantly getting the right employees and keeping them. I would strongly recommend Jeremy or his company to any organization who wants to attract and retain the best people.
I find Riviera to be very talented individuals, with a strong sense of clearly wanting to understand the client’s needs and wants. Riviera principals are excellent listeners, which allows them to key in on the needs of the client. They have a talent for outlining initiatives that produce results. I also find them to be great communicators, providing clear and concise communication to the client. Their work ethic, creativity in producing results, and their understanding of being fully ‘accountable’ makes them an asset to any client. They clearly has the ability to assist a client in achieving their initiative.
With Jeremy’s amazing insight and robust experience from which he both draws from and is anxious to share, he provided my team with new insights which allowed them to think beyond our traditional recruiting strategy and achieve breakthrough results in hiring. These breakthroughs include better candidate quality and reduced cycle time through proactive recruiting research and a significant refinement of our consultative services.
