Top Texas temporary staffing and direct-hire recruiting service
Unlike many staffing and recruiting agencies, we offer you the advantage of dealing directly with the owners of our company. In 2010, Sue and Rusty Burnett decided they wanted to give back to the people who helped make their company a success. They did an Employee Stock Ownership Plan as a strategy for the company’s future. Both full-time staff and temporary/contract staffing employees take part in this unique ownership.
We are now Texas’ largest employee-owned staffing and recruitment agency as ranked by the National Center for Employee Ownership. We are also a nationally certified woman-owned business with Sue Burnett continuing as President.
