FA&OWorks, LLC recognizes that the unique characteristics and requirements of FA&OWorks for our clients requires a level of expertise that goes beyond "submitting a resume." Our commitment to our company and as a result our clients, is to ensure that we acquire and develop our internal expertise to provide our clients with tangibly differentiated value. Unlike our colleagues in the industry who provide multiple functional segments, ours is an acute focus on the financial, accounting, and organizational requirements within each client industry we serve - whether Banking, Financial Services, Legal, Consumer Products, or Business Services.
Our team's profound knowledge and experience includes successfully building a technology company - to leading and developing one of the premier staffing companies in the country - to leading a publicly held multi-national, multi-billion dollar organization to leading a multi-national BPO company. Our singular confluence of experience and expertise ensures results - not simply finding a person - but finding the person whose own expertise will add significant value in their role and who is capable of providing meaningful return on cost while assigned or employed at our client.
It is our expertise that has in the past and continues to attract thousands of seasoned professionals to our organization and it is those seasoned professionals that enable us to achieve our goal of delivering exceptional tangible value to each client we serve. Our candidates, consultants, and clients each view FA&OWorks as much more than simply a staffing service.
The leaders of FA&OWorks espouse a simple credo and maintain a common shared value: "We do what we say we will do." That simple credo ensures both candidates and clients alike consistently receive and enjoy a standard of service and value that is predictable and measurable. When we say we will execute, we do so and we measure our execution using the qualitative and quantitative performance indicators that our consultants and clients require, and we demand of ourselves. Ours is credible confidence based on our extensive experience to deliver meaningful and tangible results to each candidate, consultant, and client we serve.
In today high-speed and technology-driven world, it has never been easier to communicate. At the same time, FA&OWorks understands that it has never been easier to be misunderstood. Combining our "facts-first" approach with a robust communicative and collaborative technological platform ensures that we not only deliver significant value, but that we also consistently exceed our candidates', consultants' and clients' expectations with validated data and best practice information. We are acutely aware that it is a robust communicative and collaborative environment supported by an unwavering commitment to integrity that enables FA&OWorks to deliver extraordinary value to our clients.
FA&OWorks is responsive to, and responsible for delivering results by investing a significant amount of our resources in each client we serve. In that regard we strive to ensure that we apply our intellectual, human, and financial capital quickly, efficiently, and effectively to rapidly deliver meaningful value to each client. FA&OWorks' responsiveness, however, goes far beyond simply acquiring talent. Instead we believe that being responsive also requires us to provide our clients with new and alternative strategies using best practices to facilitate talent acquisition while reducing the overall expense of that process and the productivity of those employed.
FA&OWorks focuses on "integrity" in the context of "Say what you mean, and mean what you say" speech and conduct. Each and every person within FA&OWorks is committed and required to manifest the highest degree of integrity in all of our candidate, consultant, and client interactions. This integrity ensures that among other practices, we keep confidential all candidate, consultant, and client information, we are committed to the dignity of each individual with whom we come in contact, and we recognize that ours is not to judge people but rather to ascertain strengths within the context of a specific function and requirement.
