In 2016, after thirteen years at the helm of Zensho, our Founder & CEO Robin Doenicke sensed a growing frustration within the recruitment community. The traditional way of engaging and rewarding recruiters was no longer relevant in the postmodern digital age.
After extensive research and meditation on the problem, he was struck by lightning from an unlikely source: the US real estate industry. Top performers in the high-end New York City market were flocking to a new agent-centric breed of brokerage where they could have it all: a world-class brand, unrivaled platform, and maximum returns. Why couldn’t the same be done in recruitment?
Well, it can. It’s happening.
We are Zensho Agency, and ours is a story the market has been waiting to hear.
Zensho means “whole life.” The inspiration for our name comes from Yamaoka Tesshū (1836-1888), who was influential in the Meiji Restoration of 1868 and famed for his selfless action. He was a prolific calligrapher, an accomplished martial artist, and the founder of a Rinzai Zen temple named Zensho-an, which still exists in Tokyo.
To us, a “whole life” is one lived with purpose and presence. That’s why Zensho is a fitting name: we recognize the connections we create change lives, so we work with urgency. Our mission is to fulfill our ‘why’ by helping others fulfill theirs.
Zensho Agency is an exclusive, remote-first, technology-driven brokerage leading the global recruitment rebellion. Authentic and present, we’re a tribe that has grown together through a genuine desire for collective success. Including yours. So, why work with us? Because those who enjoy liberation, empowerment, and maximum rewards make the most trusted advisors to the people they serve.
Our freedom. Your potential.
