What Businesses Say

Our partnership has been a win-win from the start. Truly a blessing! We face in the same direction, toward common goals to enhance the lives of those we serve and touch. Through strong collaboration and friendship, we continue to make a huge difference in the client’s quality of life.

– Hannah Schultz, Accent Care

It can be daunting trying to create the structure [for training], trying to find the time and the effort to do a lot of these things, but at the end of the day it really is an investment in your team and in the business. It’s one of those things where the dividends from that are there—from employee retention to overall wellness and happiness to excitement for the business. We’ve definitely seeing a great return on all of these.

Alex Pierson, Amplified Aleworks

January is our busiest hiring season; during this time we have a large amount of positions we are trying to fill. Utilizing the job marketing and advertising that the business services department offers becomes increasingly important when we have to fill hundreds of positions at once.
