We know the right way to handle staffing and recruitment.

We mean it when we say we're not just another agency.

4FMV was created in 2009 by a team of seasoned recruitment professionals—experienced in recruitment advertising, recruitment technology, job boards and payroll—who were disillusioned by the state of our industry.

Staffing agencies were using the opacity of their closed market to hide over-billing of clients, and to disguise the underpaying of their talent. The more we looked into it, the more it became clear that the short-term gain of un-leveling the playing field was being paid for by the long-term breakdown of trust between everyone involved.

We found that the most important factor in the relationship between the organizations who need qualified staff and the staffing agencies they are forced to deal with—trust—had eroded, thanks to years of poor communication, dubious processes and bad faith.

Both sides knew they were being mistreated, but were being offered no alternative to fix a broken system. We knew that there was a real opportunity for a company that could set this situation right, and so we came up with a very simple business model: Fair Market Value.

We know what employers need.

Maybe you’re assembling a team to work on an exciting new product. Maybe you’re refining the group working on your ongoing projects. Maybe you’re desperate for rock-star crunch-time help so you can meet your deadline. Or maybe you’ve just been waiting for that last piece of the puzzle, with the right personality and skills, who will help take you to the next level.

We know what's at stake.

You need people to get things done. You don’t want to waste time on an inbox overflowing with untargeted resumes. You don’t want to waste time interviewing the wrong people while the perfect candidate slips through the cracks, or gets tired of waiting and moves on. And above all, you don’t want to waste time worrying about dollars and cents when you should be focusing on your work.

You need someone you can trust to properly represent you to the very best candidates, and who will work closely with both parties throughout the process of bringing you together.

We know how to build trust.

We work with select clients and invest the time to get to know all about your projects and your culture. We make the same investment in our network of skilled contractors, making sure their knowledge and their goals line up with yours. We represent all our clients with equal respect, make sure the lines of communication are open, and above all, we promise everyone involved Fair Market Value.
