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 with mass-market type recruiting and gradually move to a more directed relationship/network approach for requesitions where quality candidates are at a minimum. Searches for high end consultants are performed through traditional recruiting methods utilizing networking, relationships and our custom built database of providers.
