For more than a decade, Ford Resource Group, a Small Woman Owned (SWaM) certified business, has been matching quality professionals with local businesses to fill their challenging IT and business positions.
It’s tough work, but we have a system that combines old school ‘getting to know you’ with new technology.
Our system works quite well. Ford Resource Group has enjoyed 10 years of solid growth during a recession!! How have we done it? Face to face. That’s how!
We get to know you and your business on a personal level, and take pride in the results we help you to achieve.
- We like what we do.
- We care about the results.
- We take pride in our work.
Those are the core beliefs at Ford Resource Group. They are the traits we seek for our own employees, and they are the traits we look for in our consultants.
By meeting our clients and our consultants in person, and getting to understand their needs we are able to match our clients and our consultants into mutually beneficial and lucrative relationships.
We’ve been following that philosophy for 10 years, and can show a successful track record in the fields of healthcare, financial, manufacturing and government at the state, local and federal levels.
It seems like just about everyone appreciates personal service and good old fashioned caring.
We are well established, having successfully placed qualified professionals within the following areas:
- Healthcare / MMIS
- IT Project Manager
- Business Systems Analyst
- Network Engineer
- Software Developer
- Database Administrator
- Strategic Planner
- Business Process Manager
