Ringwood

    A unique employment service designed to empower individuals to use the "temp model" to manage their own careers.  As a self-directed temporary help agency service, the job seeker negotiates wages, hours, and length of assignments.   FutureWorks serves as employer of record, maintains administrative records, and files taxes.  Qualified career counselors conduct individual and group job search training sessions and encourage temps to seek full time, benefited employment.   FutureWorks never charges their temp pool of workers any fees.

    The job seeker becomes a FutureWorks associate, receiving a portable fringe benefits package including:  vacation pay, holiday pay, and 401(k) plan employer matching.  Group health, dental, term life insurance and/or a 401(k) plan are available for purchase with pre-tax dollars.
