CEO’s Statement on Remote Hiring Trends
“Our Employer Partner program has been a welcome and affordable option for many smaller businesses that have transitioned to permanent or hybrid remote work during the first quarter of 2021, and have looked to fill their openings with experienced and qualified candidates.
We are proud to be able to offer services in a way that brings employers and jobseekers together.

Remote work is the great employment equalizer.”
