clients dont have to foot the bill during the discovery process because we

Synergy Consulting Group's path toward taking Employment Trends staffing
services to the next level in our evolution," explained John Boone,
Employment Trends CEO. "They understood the big picture and brought us to the
realization that we needed critical infrastructure improvements including improving our
accounting systems and adding key individuals to our management team. With Synergy's help,
Employment Trends is breaking through to a new level of growth and capabilities."
Employment Trends was recently selected by Inc. magazine as one of the 500
fastest growing companies in the United States..
