IT Staffing RecruitingNavigation
For almost 40 years, Al Strong has run CPS with love, grit and determination. His vision to help Southern Ca. businesses and organizations locate and hire the best IT personnel made him a legend in the IT staffing industry. As a leader at Information Industries Inc, he initiated a version of what so many now call Contract to Hire. With this innovation CPS has been successful in placing thousands of contractors nationwide. The team at CPS are sad to announce that Al passed away last week and though he will no longer be running the show here at CPS, his love and passion to bring businesses and the right IT professionals together will not diminish. Remembering Al’s great sense of humor and his dogged determination to do a great job, we are more committed than ever to keep Al’s legacy alive. Though we are sad today, we are grateful that Al’s 80 years were lived to the fullest.

All Commercial Programming Systems (CPS) candidates’ references are checked thoroughly to provide you with the best possible staff members. Lease To Hire Our unique Lease To Hire program allows employers and employees alike the opportunity to exercise flexibility and choice. Unlike most Contract to Hire programs, this service has an extremely high rate of our clients actually hiring our assignees as full time employees to their staff. Through this program CPS will hire, and in special circumstances, relocate high quality candidates to your site. You may choose to hire the employee/s after an agreed upon period of time. Normal terms are six months for a local hire, nine months for a candidate relocated anywhere in the U.S., and 12 months for an internationally relocated candidate. With Lease to Hire, managers have the opportunity to evaluate perspective employees before hiring them permanently. Lease to Hire also gives potential staff members a chance to do the same, while remaining secure in their employment with CPS.
