Our Core Values

Integrity and Commitment

Our Code of Ethics and Good Practices

Provide a level of service that meets or exceeds industry standards and complies with applicable state and federal law.

Train managers and recruiters to follow specific company procedures to ensure client service levels are met and maintained.

Ensure temporary and permanent employees have the experience and training necessary to perform the job safely and effectively.

Provide equal employment opportunities based on bona fide job qualifications, without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, or disability.

Environmental Health and Safety and Good Practices

Our first goal is to prevent occupational injury and illness by anticipating, evaluating, recognizing and controlling hazards.

We strive to create an incident-free work environment through an educated work force. To compliment our maritime staffing efforts, we’ve created a health, safety and environmental program (HSE) that is comprehensive, effective and tailored to address specific real-life health and safety issues.

Senior management is visibly involved in the HSE program. We view each employee as a respected and valued member of a team, and desire to make them feel they are working with a caring and supportive organization.
