Stephens International Recruiting Inc President and CEO Cindy Stephens, and Tim Hopkins, executive recruiter, have completed the national certification exams, recognizing them as certified personnel consultants and certified temporary staffing specialists.

Certification signifies professionalism, credibility, and dedication to the industry and is the staffing industry’s highest standard of quality service. It demonstrates an individual’s knowledge of critical areas such as employment laws, business operations and ethics, and personnel and contract management.

In May, Stephens International partnered with Blu-Med Response Systems, Kirkland, Wash, to guarantee staffing for three facilities overseen by the California Emergency Medical Services Authority. To support this contract, it opened a separate division, Stephens International Biomedical Services, adding two BMETs to its staff.

Stephens International specializes in placement services in the clinical equipment, medical imaging, medical device, and medical instrumentation industry.
