Company History

Founded in 2010 by Better Hiring Enthusiasts Jonathan Bergman and Robert Butler, Hire Well Now offers customized service from dedicated experts.

It all began in a Basement: 7/10/2010

Co-founders Jonathan Bergman and Robert Butler began researching and developing the idea of Hire Well Now by slapping concepts, ideas, theories and wishes on the Bergman Basement Walls.

It all goes live: 1/1/2011

Hire Well Now launched our first website and announced to the world "open for business." Jonathan focused on Business Development and Robert, everything else!

We developed our first piece of recruitment tech: 6/13/2011

We set out to change the world by giving business owners tools to make better hiring decisions with our behavioral assessments. By June of that year, our customers needed a better way to gather applicants and deliver assessments. So we built a very basic Applicant Application System. We also hired our first employee this year.

Hire Well Now meets Newton Software: Early 2012

Our customers needed a better application solution, so we worked with Newton Software to offer a Best in Class Applicant Tracking solution. Customers loved it! We had to hire another employee to help support customers using the new platform.

Background checks: June 2013

Our customers were needing a better way to screen potential we jumped in!

Employee onboarding: March 2015

Customers needed a hassle-free way to get new hire paperwork done, so we co-built employee onboarding software. We gave it real-time E-Verify and starting doing Work Opportunity Tax Credits for our clients as a bonus!

Managed recruiting: October 2016

We had a really good customer who was fed up with figuring out how to recruit employees. Jonathan (JB) made some silly comment that it can't be that hard. So we opened our own Recruiting Service for employers. We started this year with 5 of us. We ended up hiring 7 new people to handle our clients’ recruiting needs.

Employee satisfaction surveys: January 2017

We needed to figure out why employee turnover was so high in retail, so like the brain surgeons we are, we started calling employees who quit our clients and asked, “What gives?" We also hired a few more folks!

ePULSE™ comes to life: September 2019

We debuted our secret weapon to tackle turnover and increase retention rates at the iQmetrix MeetUp summit in Denver. Business owners LOVE IT! We now have around 26 employees and I have no idea what they do here!
