More Than Just a Staffing Agency


…It’s the way we treat our candidates and clients.

Our remarkable candidate experience leads to higher-quality referrals. Experienced, dedicated recruiters ask the right questions, see more candidates and create better matches.

The result? Happier employees. Faster, more efficient, more successful staffing. Fewer headaches. Less turnover. And a 96% success rate on our placements.


In 1994, we began offering administrative and executive assistant placement throughout the city of Chicago and the western suburbs. Our goal was to differentiate ourselves in the market by focusing on the candidate experience: treating people better than anyone else.

Our Mission is to be the most referred administrative/office staffing firm in Chicago. We accomplish this by offering our candidates and clients a Remarkable Hiring Experience.
