More comments from our clients on their experience working with BackStretch:

I view BackStretch as an extension of my HR department, and really a partner in so far as attracting the best talent to help us grow our business.

They've allowed us to stay really lean when it comes to our operations management of our business, and they kind of fit pretty seamlessly into what we're doing.

The depth, definitely the "do-say" ratio is high. When Matt says, or anyone on this team says that they're going to do something, I know with certainty that it will happen.

BackStretch has kind of been our recruiting arm. They've helped us with language and employment agreements, understanding what the market will bear and where we may be off with salaries, or other non-monetary kind of components of compensation, and what other businesses in the industry are doing. They've been like a consultant and a recruiter for us.

We Can help Your Business!
