About Focus & Find®

With Socially Responsible Recruiting Focus & Find® paves the way for a more inclusive future by creating diverse and successful workforces that reflect the communities and clients they serve.

Desmund Adams

Founder and CEO

I am all about fair.

I believe by being fair we can do a better job of recruitment. This is why I founded Focus & Find®, to do recruitment better. We’ve created a system designed to help companies assemble a workforce for the changing times. By expanding the pool of talent, and how clients interact with candidates, I am committed to making the process fair and rewarding for both clients and candidates. Believing in fair has led me to develop Socially Responsible Recruiting.

Jo Anne Weimer

Vice President Operations

I’m here to make it easier for Socially Responsible Recruitingto happen. I coordinate and oversee operations to ensure that as an organization, Focus & Find® works towards achieving a recruiting system fairer for all. I tend to sweat the details of how Desmund’s vision for Focus & Find® is manifested through our practices and policies. A fair chance is all anyone wants, and I am honored to be part of an organization working hard to bring fairness to the recruitment of talent.

John Gebhardt

Chief Technology Officer

I am responsible for making sure fair is integrated into all our systems. To accomplish this, we built our own system. I manage the proprietary technology that makes Socially Responsible Recruiting™ possible. It is one thing to talk about fair recruiting, but we have managed to build it into how we do recruitment through our various processes. Our promise; this technology better reflects the process mutually inclusive for candidates and recruiters. As a team member, I am so proud that Focus & Find® had the forethought to initiate a system that makes the recruitment of talent a fairer process.


We put our money where our mouth is. After each Focus & Find® engagement is completed, we make a donation to a local charity in honor of your company’s commitment to social responsibility.
