Have the Happiest of Holidays in Bethlehem

The holiday season is in full swing and hopefully you’re enjoying every second of it! Made even more festive thanks to our proximity to “Christmas City,” this time of year is truly magical.

If you’re busy searching for Allentown, PA jobs, you might feel a little distracted this year, but don’t forget to take a break and enjoy the season. There’s always something fun going on in the Lehigh Valley during the holidays, so allow yourself to relax a little and soak it all in.

Here at HTSS, Inc., we work hard throughout the holidays, but we always take time to enjoy all the area has to offer. Here’s a couple of our favorite local events happening this month.

Christkindlmarkt Bethlehem

Modeled after the festive holiday outdoor markets in Germany, Christkindlmarkt Bethlehem has been bringing cheer to the area since 1993. Now one of the largest holiday attractions in the Northeastern U.S., this breathtaking market features handmade art, Germany’s Kathe Wohlfahrt — known for its authentic German ornaments, nutcrackers and other items — live Christmas music, mouth-watering food and so much more.

Of course, St. Nicholas is also on hand, along with ice carving demonstrations, the GlassWorks area — offering hand-blown holiday ornaments and art — and the beautiful 26-foot-tall Christkindlmarkt tree. The perfect place to do your holiday shopping and for a fun family afternoon, you’ll want to visit Christkindlmarkt more than once this season! Get more details on Christkindlmarkt Bethlehem.


If you don’t already have plans for New Year’s, head to PEEPS® in the Bethlehem SteelStacks for PEEPSfest. This annual two-day event takes place from 10am to 4pm on Dec. 30 and 10am to 5:30pm on Dec. 31. Fun and family-friendly, the festival features a host of events, including the PEEPSfest 5K and the PEEPs Chic Drop — a 4-feet, 9-inches, 200-pound lighted PEEPS chick dropped annually at 5:15pm on Dec. 31 to celebrate the New Year.

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.
