About

ABOUT FORUM

The Forum story is one that has repeated itself many times in our great country. It is a story of young professionals creating an enterprise built on hard work and the unyielding principle that treating both candidates and clients with respect and honesty will yield success. Our growth over four plus decades is a direct result of our commitment to engage and train the very best individuals. We are committed to supporting, incentivizing and leading our team in providing the most professional service possible. In an industry well-known for employee turnover, we are blessed to currently have over 25 staff members with over 20 years of employment with our firm while a dozen or more have retired.

These principles have served us well for over four decades whether operating in vibrant or weak economies. We have been extremely prudent in funding all of our operations with internal capital. In doing so since our inception, we have incurred no debt, which allows us to operate in a stable manner through any economic climate. There are no shortcuts to success, and our proud history is a testament to the principle that hard work and professionalism will yield outstanding results. We invite you to meet with us to discuss your future career growth or to assist you with any staffing requirements.
