We're Here to Help You
WIN the Race for Talent!

In fact, if you're a small to medium sized employer, we'd love to help you make your team #1!

And it all starts with getting the right people on your bus!

We know how challenging it can be to fill your bus with the right people. Great candidates are hard to find. It’s easy to get fooled. And if you’re in the market without the right resources or expertise, it’s easy to burn a lot of time and energy without any guarantees of success!

Did you know that 35 – 50% of all hiring decisions

turn out to be hiring mistakes within the first 12 months of hire?

That’s where the PACE team steps in – providing the latest technologies, state of the art candidate vetting, and just the overall staffing and recruiting savvy it takes to put the right people on your bus – at the right time and in the right way! At PACE, we don’t just read thru stacks of resumes, do key word searches, and spend 15 minutes chatting with a candidate before we send them your way. Our service model steps you through a RESULTS FOCUSED hiring process that includes all the candidate assessment tools you need to pin point the candidate most likely to be a difference maker for you!  

And you always have options. You can hire a candidate direct. Bring them on board for a short or long term temporary assignment. Or, you can put them into an audition mode where you get to see if the employee is the right fit for your bus before you say the final “I dos.”          

In the people business, nothing is 100% – but we definitely know where to look for the right candidates and will gather up the info you need to make the right staffing or hiring decision! We’ll make sure you’re a consistent winner in the race for talent!      

PACE offers a comprehensive menu of service options -
Direct Hire Recruiting Services. Temporary Staffing. Payroll Agent Services - More!

An entire NETWORK of local, world class resources that always has you covered!

Professional Recruiting/Direct Hire Staffing Solutions

We offer a variety of recruiting packages that don’t come with high fees or dicey guarantees. Our recruiting packages are custom-designed to fit your precise needs and budget. We’ll leverage our vast candidate network, our RESULTS FOCUSED hiring model, and state-of-the-art assessment technologies to find both active and passive candidates for your full or part-time direct hire roles.  

Temp-to-Hire Working Auditions

This is our most popular staffing solution, offering employers to try out a candidate before making them an offer to join their team. This is a hiring model that avoids costly hiring mistakes ensuring both the employer and the candidate are making the right decision before saying I do. We make it easy to transition the right employee from our payroll to yours!

Temporary / Contract Staffing

Temporary staffing solutions offer employers a way to get work done without making long term or fixed commitments. It’s an ideal way to onboard our employees for special projects, leaves of absences, or anytime you’re just not sure what lies ahead for your business. Staffing flexibility is one of the most important strategies used by companies who can’t predict what their business environment is going to look like in the next 12 months.  

Skill, Aptitude, and "Fit" Assessments

The more you know about a candidate before you hire them, the better your hiring result. We offer a variety of candidate evaluation and vetting services to make sure the candidate you hire on Friday is the same person who shows up for work on Monday.

Employer of Record / Pay Agent Services

A hands-free pay and benefit management service for employers who need to put an employee to work but don’t want the hassle of being a W2 employer. Avoid administrative headaches and ensure compliance – and save time and money at the same time.

Managed Services

Our premium staffing service designed for employers who need a truly outsourced staffing and recruiting solution. Our managed services model takes charge of all your recruiting and staffing needs, top to bottom – all vendors, all services, all job categories. It’s a great way to put our NETWORK to work at your command! All managed service packages are customized to meet your unique service requirements.  

Hiring Help - Resume Reviews / Reference Checks / Interview Questions / More

And just what makes PACE Different?

We learned quickly to make a difference we had to do things differently. That's why we've
discarded so many traditional staffing or recruiting agency practices once we realized they
didn't make sense - to us or our clients.

Here's just a few of the ways our Employer clients experience the difference.....

recruiting and temporary staffing agency

There’s lots of things we do (or don’t do) that makes us different.  Our clients have noticed by ranking PACE in the top 2% of staffing agencies nationwide!    

  • All recruiting fees are are quoted up front and fixed for the life of the recruit. No more big ticket search fees with dicey guarantees.
  • All PACE services include built in guarantees and payment terms. We make it easy for employers to partner with PACE!  
  •  While our RESULTS FOCUSED hiring model is used extensively for Executive Search, we’ve uniquely applied it to work for non executive roles as well. This is HUGE value for small to midsized employers who need to hire the best of the best!    
  • At PACE we call a temp a temp, not a contractor or a consultant just to raise our bill rates. Ask about our fully transparent direct cost pricing model – it’s definitely not the norm.      
  • Our candidate referrals are not rehashed resumes with a cover. All PACE referrals come with comprehensive packets of candidate info designed to help you make the right hiring decision.

Q2. 2024!

Q1 has been quite a ride for those of us in the staffing industry. Let’s just say OUR marketplace has had its share of volatility, dealing with some workforce trends that for many of us were a bit unexpected. As example, at PACE we have been thinking for a while now that our clients would start using more temporary staff.
