Get Out and Enjoy Fall in the Lehigh Valley!

At HTSS, Inc., we can’t get enough of fall and there’s nowhere we’d rather spend this magical season than the Lehigh Valley. The leaves are about to start changing, temperatures are becoming pleasantly crisp and we’ll soon be ending the day huddled around a cozy fireplace.

Make the most of the season by getting out and enjoying all the area has to offer this season. Here’s a list of our favorite September events happening across the Lehigh Valley.

MDA Muscle Walk

Head to Cedar Creek Park in Allentown on Sept. 25 to participate in the MDA Muscle Walk of Greater Lehigh Valley.

HTSS, Inc. is proud to be a sponsor of this year’s MDA Muscle Walk and we home to see you there!

We’re trying to help the Muscular Dystrophy Association raise $77,000 to research, treatments and support, but this can’t be accomplished without the support of community members like you. Sign up for the MDA Muscle Walk or make a donation today!

CEO Letter

As a staffing and recruitment professional for over  30 years, I have seen many changes in the industry. Over that time, I’ve witnessed a transformation in the way organizations view staffing services. Today, we see more and more companies using staffing services as a strategic tool, rather than just for temporary fill-ins.

At HTSS, Inc., our focus is on helping companies create proactive workforce plans. Our goal is to help our clients use staffing strategically to increase capacity, overcome hiring freezes, access specialized talent, better manage increased workloads, and enhance overall productivity.

For our candidates, we help to uncover truly rewarding job opportunities—jobs that are a match to each candidate’s skills, and jobs that offer key experience and growth potential.

We look forward to strengthening our relationships with our current clients and candidates, as well as forming new and exciting partnerships in the future.
