Contemporaries Integrated Support Solutions

Staffing Support Solutions

Workforce solutions and talent acquisition have undergone dynamic changes in the last decade. Highly skilled, talent-rich and purpose-driven individuals are often freelancers. Many of the organizations we work with understand the benefits of this workplace acquisition process and turn to savvy human solution companies, like Contemporaries, to find these top professionals.

Human Capital Solutions

All too often, human resources are scarce within organizations. The HR department is often overwhelmed and understaffed. Our Human Capital Services provide much-needed knowledge concerning HR laws and compliance – and can relieve an organization during stressful times. We help with training employees, filing taxes, hiring, firing, finding staff during a hiring freeze and managing benefit options.

Program Management Solutions

These solutions ensure a well-defined program with support at every level. Program solutions can include acquisition streamlining, government-wide contracts, grant management and compliance. Contemporaries can provide experienced professionals who have expertise in various government positions and can be effective from the start.

Niche-based Solutions

We also hire for specific needs. A database management expert? A specialist in medical information? Contemporaries has both domestic and foreign talent resources where we are able to find candidates with specific knowledge and experience. Contemporaries also offers project management staffing options where you can hire a team ranging from two to ten or more employees.
