What does it take to connect U.S. skilled workers with businesses in need of reliable employees? A U.S. Chamber study in 2021 showed that less than half of small businesses were able to find enough workers to fill all available positions.

Alpha1 Staffing evaluated job descriptions, assessed candidates, provided marketing services, and streamlined the hiring process to ensure a successful partnership with the municipal government.
