We transitioned from six temporary employment agencies to one professional employment group, that being CMG. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we had to expedite the transition quite rapidly,...

and CMG rose the occasion by moving our turnover date ahead by 2 weeks. They were true heroes in our eyes.

I highly recommend CMG for an employment solution to any company looking to outsource their employment needs. read less
