Don’t Waste Your Money on a 2017 Planner — Use These Affordable Resources Instead!

Staying organized is the secret to success, but buying a 2017 planner can be expensive. Thankfully, HTSS, Inc. — one of the best employment agencies in the Lehigh Valley — has a few completely free suggestions just as fabulous as anything you’ll find in a store.

Sure, there are plenty of digital options to help you maintain order, but there’s nothing wrong with having a preference for a planner you can physically carry around in your bag. In today’s digital era, there’s something so satisfying about taking a break from a screen and managing your appointments, contacts and to-do list the old-fashioned way — with a pen and paper.

Now that the new year is in full swing, it’s time to retire your 2016 planner and find a replacement. HTSS, Inc. recommends these three sites to create your new planner for free.

The Handmade Home

Make your planner just as pretty as it is orderly with free printables in a variety of sizes from The Handmade Home. Choose from a variety of planner covers, info pages, calendars, contact lists, birthday and anniversary pages, dividers, pages to track goals, shopping lists, to-do lists, cleaning lists and so much more. There’s a printable for just about anything you could possibly need to record and track, setting the stage for 2017 to be your most productive year yet!

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.
