WHAT MAKES ELSNER HR DIFFERENT?
Whether you’re an employer or a job seeker, recruiting and job searches are among the most personal experiences most of us will ever go through – and when successful, they can establish relationships that affect our business prospects and livelihoods for years.
That’s why, at Elsner HR, we’re highly focused on providing a personal touch. We get to know our clients, visit their worksites, and understand their cultures as well as their processes and procedures. The same principles apply with job candidates: We always meet with everyone face-to-face, getting to understand their career aspirations as well as their skills and experience – before we ever make a connection for them to our clients.
Finally, we recognize the value in networking within the local HR community and keeping current with the latest human resources trends.
