About Us

At Pipeline, we believe in helping our clients excel by building their best workforces.

A new kind of strategic workforce solutions provider.

Our name may be new, but the solution and services Pipeline Talent Solutions provides are generated by some of the industry’s most experienced and respected veterans. They understand the gravity of creating and managing a successful workforce management program, regardless of size or industry.

 

We set ourselves apart because we believe that all companies deserve their optimal workforces. One too many times, we’ve seen a small company or programs with smaller spends dismissed by larger providers because they aren’t lucrative enough. That practice ends with Pipeline.

 

Our consultative talent acquisition and management ecosystem moves beyond the traditional tactical solutions still prevalent in the marketplace. We understand the complexities and demands of today’s workforce market, so our team is structured to provide every client with breakthrough strategic expertise and creative solutions.

Why Choose Pipeline?
Because we create and sustain workforce solutions that actually meet your specific needs.
With so many options out there, it can be daunting to select the right strategic workforce solutions provider. Pipeline Talent Solutions was founded with that in mind, so we create a distinctive program every time. We start with consultative services, learning about your company, not telling you what you need. We often uncover unrealized business needs and goals, then we shape your program. As that program matures, we stay with you, analyzing your data and market trends, ensuring unrivaled program outcomes.
Our Mission

Pipeline’s mission is to create a workforce solutions ecosystem where companies and suppliers work together, realizing optimal outcomes. By providing solutions and support at every step of the process – from strategic planning to program launch – we believe our long-term commitment to our clients creates collaborative, caring relationships.

At the end of the day, we want to provide people with opportunities, making futures better.

Our Vision

Our vision is to create a strategic solutions ecosystem that provides solutions for every workforce need, no matter the company.
