Best of Staffing Client Satisfaction 2023 Emblem awarded to Onward Search for diversity equity and inclusion
The team at Onward has an unmatched attention to detail that made finding opportunities matching my skill set and preferences very rewarding. Even after being placed, there were occasional check-ins to see how I was doing and if I had any problems. That level of personal attention makes a world of difference and separates Onward from all of the other staffing agencies I’ve worked with over the years.
