We link entrepreneurs and freelancers to an extensive network of leading organizations. With a recognized model agreement, we shape your employment relationship in the right way.

We set the contract terms of your position beforehand, and match the terms the client offers to its own employees. We also regularly evaluate your progress and make adjustments as needed. This provides clarity up front, direction along the way and prevents miscommunications.
