PeopleOps Done™ refers to a one-and-done platform for recruiting, benefits, payroll and HR management for businesses offered by Escalon.

Our experienced team of recruiters will then conduct phone screenings and provide initial candidate ratings and then provide you with a curated list of prospects ready for the first round of interviews. We carefully evaluate whether the candidate’s qualifications, experience, workplace preferences and salary needs are congruent with the position and your organization.
