About Us 2017-03-09T16:09:26+00:00

We work hard – for companies, candidates and this community.

Since 1969, Ethan Allen Workforce Solutions has been matching the energetic and hard-working jobseekers of the Hudson Valley with the career opportunities provided by our diverse community of employers.

Ethan Allen Workforce Solutions began as the employment agency Ethan Allen Personnel (now Ethan Allen Recruitment) which was founded in 1969. In response to the needs of the employers in the Hudson Valley, we started the temporary staffing agency Dutchess Temps (now Ethan Allen Staffing) in 1982. To further enhance our permanent placement and temporary staffing services, we incorporated Staff-Line, Inc. our (PEO) Professional Employer Organization In 1992. In 2014 we added recruitment process outsourcing to our services which are provided by Ethan Allen RPO.

Today Ethan Allen Workforce Solutions’ group of companies offers a full range of employment solutions including: direct placement, temporary staffing, recruitment process outsourcing and professional employer services. This gives us the capacity and flexibility to provide the HR, staffing, and recruiting solutions our clients need. Ethan Allen’s long tenure and diverse client base offer job seekers access to many excellent temporary and permanent job opportunities.

Locally owned and operated, and a certified Woman Owned Business Enterprise, we are the largest full service agency in the area. We’ve partnered with firms in this region for over 40 years. So we’ve got local focus and insight. We also bring award-winning national and international scope to bear, thanks to our connections with personnel and recruitment associations whose reach extends around the globe.
