Contract staffing

Over 80% of companies in corporate America use some form of contract staffing as it offers numerous benefits over traditional W-2 employees. Searches for mid-level contractors are conducted similarly to mid-level employee searches where we start by emphasizing mass-market type recruiting and gradually move to a more directed relationship/network approach. This approach is especially ideal where quality candidates are scarce. Searches for high end consultants are performed through traditional recruiting methods utilizing networking, relationships and our custom built database of providers.
