Bayside opened its doors back in 2001, eager to change the face of the staffing industry.  For years, we watched our competitors use rigid service models that were convenient and profitable for them – whether or not they delivered the right solutions for their clients.

Bayside took a fundamentally different approach.

We broke out of the mold of traditional staffing and consulting firms, creating a company that’s flexible and nimble. One that eliminates “corporate” red tape and enables us to deliver intelligent solutions that solve real business problems.

As a result, everything we do supports building strong relationships.  We are vertically focused, only serving a few industries. We design flexible solutions that effectively address our clients’ and contractors’ needs, initiatives and goals.  We execute a relationship-based business philosophy based on our TACIT Values – the inherent principles of Trust, Accountability, Consistency, Integrity and Teamwork that guide everything we do.

Simply put, we understand the value of solid relationships – the confidence that comes with knowing you have a partner you can really trust. One that will go the extra mile to make your business or career more successful.  One that’s honest.  Ethical.  Respectful – and, yes, kind.

12 years later, we’ve evolved from a humble staffing service, to an industry-leading provider of staff augmentation and consulting services – with an executive team boasting 70 years of combined industry experience.  We’re stronger than ever, servicing every major metropolitan city in the United States.

To this day, nothing makes us happier than delivering intelligent solutions that help our clients and contractors thrive – because to us, recruiting is personal.  We’ve raised the bar in workforce solutions, and you should never accept anything less.
