February Happenings in the Lehigh Valley

Let’s be honest, the weather outside has been a bit frightful lately. We know it’s cold outside, but when the roads are clear, it’s important to stop hibernating and have some fun.

If you’re looking for or trying to fill jobs in Lehigh Valley, PA, you’re probably pretty busy, but it’s important to step away from your desk and relax a little. Even when it’s bitter cold outside, there’s always plenty of exciting activities going on in the Lehigh Valley.

At HTSS, Inc. , we can’t get enough of our local community. Here’s a look at three of our favorite happenings this February.

First Friday

Presented by the SouthSide Arts District, First Friday takes place in Bethlehem on a monthly basis. The festivities fall on February 1 this month, so bundle up and enjoy a night of gallery shows, food specials, drink deals, free samples and live music. Some of February’s special events include the PEEP THIS! Sculpture competition — cast your vote at Color Me Mine — and a performance by Anthony Pasciuti — you might remember him from January Noon — in the Crayola Gallery at The Banana Factory.

Winter Wellness

Treat your mind, body and soul to some much-needed rest and relaxation at Blue Mountain Vineyards’ Winter Wellness event. The festivities take place on February 9th, from noon to 5pm in New Tripoli, where you’ll have the opportunity to connect with a variety of vendors and holistic practitioners. The $10 entrance fee also gets you a tasting of five wines of your choosing, making this event an incredible value.

Girl Scout Cookies at Lehigh Valley Mall

The most delicious time of year is back! Local Girl Scout troops are selling Girl Scout cookies at the Lehigh Valley Mall right now until March 10th. Pick up a box or five Monday through Friday from 3pm to 6pm, Saturday from 10am to 9pm and Sunday from 11am to 6pm.

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.
