When the economic slowdown washed over the country a few years ago, hunkering down wasn't part of the plan for Staffing Alternatives. The company chose instead to amplify its sales and marketing messages, figuring the effort would pay off when clients began hiring again. It did, and the company has continued to grow. Founded in 1994, Staffing Alternatives provides temporary, temporary-to-hire and direct-hire staffing services to businesses throughout New Jersey. The company has developed several training and safety programs to benefit both clients and employees.
