Success all starts with our proven match process:


Culture Match

We work with company leadership to identify the core values of the company. We work hard to get to know your company’s culture, vision and direction so that we have a good sense of what kind of people will fit in well with your current staff and make your company flourish.

Behavior Match

Although the culture and opportunity match are extremely important parts of the search process, the behavior match can be equally important and vital for the success of the hire. We utilize a behavioral/personality tool that ensures that we are screening for the right behavioral tendencies for this position. We can also help you with position benchmarking.

Opportunity Match

We sit down with the hiring manager at your organization and define what success looks like in the open position. Together, we define the key goals and objectives that we screen candidates against, which is critical in selling how a candidate can make an impact and grow with your company.

Appreciation Match

Research shows employees that feel appreciated tend to stay with companies longer. We work closely with employers to ensure that the compensation, benefits, retirement and vacation package is competitive and realistic. We also assist with career pathing strategy, so that you can help new and existing employees see a path to reach their career goals and ambitions.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Rupp Performance Management on multiple fronts. They found me my dream job with an exciting organization; they provided us with new talent as we continued to grow, and they found my successor when it was time for me to retire! I highly recommend Rupp Performance Management!”

Director of Sales – Equipment Company

“I have worked with Rick on a number of critical hires and found him to be of the highest quality and integrity. His pre-evaluation of potential recruits is outstanding, far better than other recruiter options, and find that he brings candidates closest to my needs. Besides being a true professional, Rick is also personable and easy to work with. I will utilize his services again.”

President – Equipment Company

“I have worked with Rick and Collin for several years both as client and a candidate. They have intimate knowledge of the Ag Equipment industry and are well connected in all areas. Rick and Collin listen to the recruitment needs and ask the detailed questions to get all the information. That up-front work is much appreciated as it leads to qualified candidates that meet the originally established job specifications, there is no wasted time on candidates that don’t fit the job or the company culture. Rick and Collin are extremely professional and passionate about their work and demonstrate exemplary integrity and discretion. I highly recommend the Rupp-Performance team.”

CEO – Equipment Company

“Rick has delivered great results to many of the organizations I have worked for over the years. His detailed pre-work in the search process is exceptional, and because of this pre-work, the end results have far exceeded my expectations. Even when my organization is not actively searching, Rick is constantly bringing us potential candidates. I attribute this to the fact that he really understands our business, knows our people, has visited our operations, and understands that someone might fit our needs to add higher value to our organization.”
