Staffing With a Personal Touch

Since HW Staffing Solutions was founded in 1980, we have been passionate about providing outstanding candidates and personalized customer service to each and every client we partner with. We understand the importance of hiring the best talent for your business. More than filling an empty seat, the right hire can increase efficiency, raise productivity and reach business goals. That is our mission with every placement we make!

Providing Top Talent From the Local Area and Nationwide

Here in the Capital Region, we are on a first-name basis with many of the talented individuals who live here and we are happy to introduce them to you! And, through our national affiliation with the American Staffing Association as well as our HW Staffing Solutions Branch Office Network, we can partner to expand our reach. We are able to identify top talent using a creative combination of online recruiting, social media, mobile recruiting tools, text job alerts, web-based resources and local networking.

Our process is never “cookie cutter.” What works for one client is not necessarily applied to you. This human approach has enabled us to claim that many of our clients today have been working with us for much of our 25 year history. We have accumulated an impressive list of client references over this period and would be proud to share these with you.

Our Process

We are confident that this tried-and-true process will lead to a successful placement, but above all, a long-term relationship with our clients.

All placements begin with a thorough consultation by one of our staff with you, our client. During this conversation we are looking to determine what your exact specifications are. These specifications will identify your needs in the following categories:

  • Skills
  • Experience
  • Work Style
  • Personality

The next step is to access our extensive candidate network to target the high-performance professionals that will meet your needs.  Some of these candidates have worked with us in the past, and some may be new to us – either way, all will undergo the same rigorous screening process.  This screening process includes:

  • Phone prescreen
  • In-person interview with one of our staff members
  • Skills testing through Prove It!™
  • References
  • Any other client-specified skill tests that you would like us to administer (call for details!)

Once we have selected the top candidates that meet your specifications, we will present their resumes along with a bit of information about the person behind the paper.

After this, our clients call the shots. If you would like to conduct a preliminary phone interview, or would prefer a formal “in- person” interview, we will accommodate your needs on your schedule.

We will provide uncompromised service during the interview, selection, negotiation, offer process and beyond. This quality assurance and dedication to service is what separates HW Staffing Solutions from others in our industry.

Options for Hiring

Clients of HW Staffing Solutions have a choice of hiring options and they can vary depending on your needs. The staffing options that we offer are:

Temporary Staffing

Our associates are assigned to you for a time period determined by you.  All you need to do is sign the weekly timecard. We assume all of the employer responsibility including Payroll, Payroll taxes, NYS Disability, Worker’s Compensation, Liability Insurance, and Unemployment Insurance and you receive a simple weekly invoice. The perfect solution for a last-minute staffing crisis, projects, or to allow you time to determine coverage needs in times of change.


This program allows you to try the employee, actually working in the position, during a probationary period of 560 hours. If you and the associate determine it’s a perfect match, you can bring them on to your company’s roster for a minimal fee. We still assume all of the employer responsibility during this time—you can just sit back and evaluate the situation.  How easy is that!

Direct Hire

For those situations where you need someone on staff immediately, and wish to provide your company’s benefits from the start, this is the perfect choice. We fully screen the candidates, test them for skill sets, reference check, coordinate the interview process, and help you in the negotiation of salary and benefits.

Using our firm for any of these options can save you and your organization both time and money by eliminating expensive advertising costs, time consuming screening processes and lengthy reference checking. All of our placements are guaranteed—and we don’t stop there. We continue to communicate with you, the client, and our candidate to ensure long-term successful employment.
