Secure Staff is a high-touch staffing solution that absorbs the complexity and risks of employment while strengthening the integrity and safety of our clients’ workforce. We offer a full range of vetting services to identify qualified candidates for our clients. Once a hiring decision has been made, Concentric acts as the employer of record and assumes the burden of the employee’s payroll, benefits, workers’ compensation and compliance. Clients retain control of the daily duties and assignments of all employee(s), allowing flexibility to manage operations as needed.

Secure Staff mitigates the risk of operational disruptions by taking a proactive approach to employee engagement, ensuring that you retain satisfied workers. We do this in two ways:

Great Benefits. Concentric provides market-leading employment benefits that are proven to help attract and retain the best people. Concentric staff enjoy a rich package of medical insurances that include fully-funded premiums for both employees and dependents. With additional perks like 401k matching, wellness benefits, and flexible paid leave policies, it’s no surprise we consistently receive feedback that these great benefits directly contribute to job satisfaction.

High-Touch Management. As a boutique staffing company, we take the time to build and maintain positive personal relationships with your chosen staff, ensuring that they remain engaged on the job and connected with us. We take the same high touch approach on the client side to ensure that our embedded staff are always exceeding our client’s expectations. Finally, we provide ongoing training and skills development as needed.

Concentric staff offer a wealth of experience having previously worked with government entities such as Scotland Yard, CIA, USAID, US Army Special Forces, ODNI, the World Bank, US Department of State; as well as corporate entities and non-profit organizations such as RAND, CyberPoint, Bechtel, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. We bring a unique mix/combination of skills and problem-solving experience to our client engagements.
