It’s official! Just in time for Women’s History Month, we earned federal distinction as a Woman Owned Small Business from WBENC and WBEC-West, authorized, third-party, SBA WOSB certifiers. Check out the official press release (paraphrased below).

Spectrum Recruiting Solutions, a nationally recognized recruiting, direct-hire, Recruitment Process Ownership (RPO), and outplacement service company specializing in talent acquisition and employee retention within the engineering and manufacturing industries, announced today that they have been approved as a WOSB by the Women's Business Enterprise Council - West (WBEC-West), a regional partner organization of the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

U.S. Small Business Association (SBA) requirements to meet standard of certification as a WOSB involves a meticulous process, including an in-depth review of the business, corporate documentation, clients, the business owner and an on-site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women, and meets the guidelines of the SBA for WOSB Certification.

"We are very excited to receive this recognition and provide this certification as a service to our clients who are committed to diversity and contracting officers with the government," said Tina Hazlett, CEO and Founder of Spectrum Recruiting Solutions. "We welcome the increased visibility and additional opportunities this brings, specifically new work with companies and contractors with Supplier Diversity Programs and meeting federal contract needs in the State of Utah and across the country."

We believe our partner companies share the responsibility to build and develop diverse teams that will result in technological advances within engineering and manufacturing industries.
