How We Promote Diversity in Our Supplier Base

In order to ensure neutrality, dotStaff operates in an open, diverse environment. Our unique approach allows each hiring manager to select which vendors with whom he/she wishes to work utilizing skill set requirement and areas of responsibility. Therefore, managers are not limited to one vendor. As contingent hiring needs are defined, only the appropriate vendors are automatically notified and can submit available resources for consideration. […]
