Jeff -VP, Recruiting, Retention & Training
“I have worked with Oxford Solutions for many years and with multiple organizations. When I left my former firm and was hired as the Chief Human Resources Officer of my current firm, Oxford was one of the first vendors that I called. They are good at finding niche, hard-to-find technical employees and are great at building positive relationships. They excel because they consistently provide us with high-quality candidates on a rapid basis and have developed a personalized sense for our needs – they know us and our culture which allows them to meet our needs. We will continue to consider Oxford Solutions as our top vendor of choice.”
David – Chief Human Resources Officer
“Oxford Solutions has become our solution to the difficult staffing requirements that we have found ourselves faced with this past year. Oxford has provided several qualified candidates in a timely manner for each position that we have contacted them for and have resulted in the placement of several excellent people that we are happy to say are wonderful additions to our workforce. They have made believers out of several of our managers that had reservations about using a staffing firm! I am more than satisfied with the service and the quality of people that we have received, and I will continue to use Oxford Solutions for our staffing needs and I would recommend them to companies that are looking to fill their needs and to people that are looking for employment opportunities.”

Time and Expense Reporting
Oxford Solutions provides the ability to enter your hours worked on a weekly basis online through a system known as SpringAhead. It is possible to enter hours worked at any time during a work-week period, either every day, or at the end of the work week, but hours are due in the system on a weekly basis no later than 10:00 a.m. each Monday morning.
As a company policy, Oxford does not mail pay stubs to your home address. In the event that you need to see your pay stub, you will be able to go online, log in and view/download your pay stub through our ADP portal. This will prevent delays through the mail and will give you access to all of your pay stubs when needed.
Expense reports are handled independently of the SpringAhead system. It is important to note that all expenses turned in for reimbursement must be approved and signed by a client manager to be considered valid and reimbursable. You may download the following expense sheet for use, and it may be returned to Oxford Solutions at the same time you are entering hours for the week. Expense reports may either be faxed to: 412-348-2261, or emailed to Leslee Schaffer at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

- The right place to work. We take a consultative approach to assisting our clients, working hard on the front end to understand the true needs of our clients – for either short- or long-term engagements. Our sales process always includes meeting our clients in person, and on-site – which helps us best to understand the environment our candidate will be working in.
- The right people. Our interview practices include telephone and face-to-face interviews, thorough reference checking and the ability to provide detailed pre-employment screenings (as well as E-Verify compliance) and targeted skills testing. We do our best to ensure the highest quality, and highest qualified people for the job.
- We’re flexible. Whether it’s a short-term mission-critical project, or the need to manage overhead costs…we offer contract employees, contract-to-permanent arrangements, direct placement services, or we can place an employee you have found on your own on our payroll to help you manage your overhead costs. If necessary, we can create a custom-tailored approach to solve your staffing needs.
The lines of communication are wide open.
We pride ourselves on clear, honest and open communication. Our clients, candidates and employees have a clear understanding of the status of any issue or where we stand in the process. By being clear and upfront, and never afraid to “face the brutal facts,” we manage with clarity and decisiveness.
