Why should I use your services instead of filling the roles ourselves?
Our team of recruiters is constantly sourcing, screening, and presenting qualified candidates. It’s what we do. This gives us a substantial edge in vetting employees who will be the right match for your company. We’ll do the recruiting while you focus on production, increasing your profits, and taking care of your customers.
Another important consideration is risk. When you hire employees, you expose yourself to compliance claims. This can greatly affect your U/E rates and Workers Comp insurance if you hire the wrong people. By working with AMMON, you transfer that risk to us.
