What makes Goodwill Staffing different than national staffing agencies?

I really like the employee you sent us. Can I hire him or her as a permanent member of my staff?
Yes. We provide each placement a transition period, allowing the employer and employee to assess their situation. At the end of this transition period, you’re free to hire the employee without obligation to Goodwill Staffing. If you’d like to permanently hire your employee before the transition period is over, we offer one of the lowest transition fees in the business.

What does Goodwill Staffing do with the fee I pay?
The majority of our fee is applied to workers’ wages. The balance covers Goodwill Staffing’s administrative costs, in addition to supporting Discover Goodwill’s life-changing programs and services serving individuals with developmental and economic disadvantages in our region.
