We simplify the staffing process by giving one point of contact and with over 20 years of experience, we've homed in on some of the best recruiting software to automate and expedite the staffing process. Though our focus is education, our client base spans the private and public sectors and includes several government programs where therapists are needed. Our directors of educational resources operate under a "full-desk" model, meaning our account managers also serve as our recruiters. This practice essentially cuts out the middleman and allows the person who best understands your needs to have immediate access to, and a pre-existing relationship with, the therapist who can best address those needs.
