FulcrumIT Seeks to Get Personal with New Recruits

Fulcrum-logoFulcrum IT Services has implemented a personalized orientation process for new employees in a bid to cultivate and retain the best staff, the Washington Post reported Aug. 11.

Sarah Halzack writes the company, which employs 350 people at various locations nationwide, gives fresh recruits a personalized welcome letter, a $50 gift card and a tour of its headquarters in Centreville, Va.

“You can only make a first impression once,” Kirstie de la Jara, director of human resources at Fulcrum, told the Post.

Halzack reports employees meet with CEO Jeff Handy, who aims to know his constituents beforehand.

“It’s unique in the government contracting world because most people don’t ever see their CEO,” said Meghan Misiag, a human resources generalist with the company.
