We are building a new kind of talent firm. We see the future of work as a “blended people strategy”: supporting our clients’ peak work cycles with on-demand experts and building their teams through select direct-hire recruiting that uses a modern, hybrid approach to search. All of our work is grounded in how to make work better for each person with whom we interact, while tackling the systematic changes that need to shift to make work better at scale.

I’m often asked, “Why did you name the company Forshay?”
The process involved a few branding brainiacs (thank you Nina, Jennifer, and David), and possibly several glasses of wine. And when we hit on the name, the reason for it was very simple.
The inspiration for my becoming an entrepreneur was my brother, Will Forshay. When Will was 37, he was killed in a plane accident. At the time of his death, I was eight months pregnant with my first child. I had been working the long hours Silicon Valley demands, commuting into the office every day and staying far too late. When I heard about Will, I flew to the crash site. That day, my mom told me that as much as I loved my work (and I do love my work), I couldn’t know how much time I would get with my son. She encouraged me to find a new way to blend work and family so I would have no regrets about whatever time I was given with my boy.
So Forshay stands for all people who love their work—and who strive to do their best work while living full lives with no regrets.
