A Women Business Enterprise
As a woman owned business, Freedom Staffing is proud to have qualified for and completed certification as a Women Business Enterprise (WBE).
To be eligible, a firm must be 51 percent owned by a minority or women, control the business enterprise as well as provide documentation of U.S. citizenship, and illustrate clear expertise in the industry chosen.
Being certified WBE does two things. One, it provides our current and prospective clients confidence in the level of commitment we have to our field of expertise and two, it offers those same clients the opportunity to support diversity in the marketplace by working with minority- and women-owned businesses. We believe this business model strengthens our local and national community.
