Featured Business of the Month

At JCS Family, Inc., we are now a 100% employee owned company, commonly referred to as an ESOP,  for which we take great pride. JCS Family maintains four operational divisions. Executive and staff recruiting for full time employment, temporary employment services where workers have the opportunity to convert part time work into full-time careers, non-medical home health care staffing, and global logistics and fulfillment specializing in health, cosmetics, and beauty industries. To meet the needs of our customers, we have office locations throughout eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Our Professional Staffing division is headquartered in Slatington, PA and is designed to work with any budget to locate appropriate direct hire candidates to fill your professional and skilled trade roles. As part of all engagements, we provide a no cost replacement guarantee, and where required,  background, drug and references checks. We possess the necessary resources to handle the time-consuming and costly process of recruiting and pre-qualifying candidates. Our services may be extremely beneficial for small businesses that may not have the resources to staff a dedicated hiring department. 

We are committed to the development and enhancement of proactive business relationships that include a deep understanding of business operations and corporate culture. This effort is consistently backed by our emphasis on excellent communication with both our customers and those employees we have successfully placed.

We recognize that business has been severely impacted by the current health crisis and that hiring decisions may be delayed. During this difficult period of time, we are ready to develop and to maintain a  pipeline of candidates who will be prepared for interviews when you are ready to proceed with your organization’s  future hiring process.
