Our Approach


We strive to hire employees with natural instincts for leadership & management. It is very important to us that each employee has a strong foundation in customer service. Our hiring process consists of an in depth interview with a counselor as well as comprehensive computer testing, reference checking & resume review. We hire individuals who we feel will represent the People Connection to its fullest.

We send each consultant to be accredited by the California Association of Staffing Professionals. We have a strong in house training program that ensures each new consultant understands our standard of customer service and care.

We promise to honor our guarantee if for any reason you are not satisfied with any aspect of your placement. Your concerns are taken very seriously and a resolution will be immediate.

We believe our applicants and customers should be treated like gold… Our success depends on it!

Below you will have the opportunity to learn about each of your consultant's background and training, as well as email them should you need to ask a specific question.
