Dear Valued Client,

It is with regret we inform you that Staffing Consultants ceased doing business on Friday, May 9th, 2014.

Staffing Consultants has been privileged to serve you with excellent staff during our business relationship and operate with the utmost integrity. Unfortunately in the current financial climate we were unable to continue providing excellence in service.  It has always been our philosophy that if you cannot do something well, you should not do it at all, since that does not align with our commitment of excellence and integrity.

Staffing Consultants did not retain any future formal relationship with any staffing company, nor do we recommend any staffing company for your future needs at this time.  

As you begin your new search for a staffing company, we would recommend do your research before beginning that relationship.  These recommendations are provided by American Staffing Association whom Staffing Consultants has been a proud member of for many years.

Here are a few general guidelines to consider when choosing a staffing company: 
Look for local staffing companies with a solid screening process.
Find a staffing firm that has been in business a long time.  I would recommend someone who has been in business more than 3 years.
Run a background check on the company and the owners and executive team members of the company.
Work with staffing firms that have a good reputation in your industry.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions! Reach out to the temp agency you’re considering and see how they respond to you. Good service is hard to come by.  
Ask the internal staff, “How long have you been with this company?”  If the company has internal challenges with turnover it might be a good indication they have challenges finding you good staff for your business that will stay.
* Important* Ask for copies of their most current workers comp, general and professional liability policies.  Call the insurance provider to confirm the COI’s are legitimate and still in force.

Should you have any questions about payroll or invoices prior to week ending 5/4/2014 please do not hesitate to contact us directly.  For all services provided for week beginning 5/5/2014 please contact the staffing agency with whom you signed a service agreement.
