    October 5, 2018CEO

    Thank you for your comment. I agree that there is a lot of value in "grinding" to makes sales and more importantly keeping happy and satisfied clients. As this industry and business in general have evolved it is crucial that we do more than just "grind." We need to (and are) building a proper scalable foundation that will give all of our client relationship managers and recruiters the tools and processes to do their jobs more effectively. In doing so, we will have happy clients, candidates and employees as we all come together to deliver better results. Thank you. Chris
