Welcome to Employment & Training Centers, Inc.

Building Business Relationships Since 1986

ETC provides qualified, job-ready employees to customers in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, construction, administrative, and healthcare. We customize our approach to recruitment and staffing to our clients’ needs, and work to support your existing human resources operations. If you’re seeking qualified candidates, staffing or payrolling, or need assistance with human resources policies and practices, we can help.

Staffing & Payrolling

ETC’s staffing services include full cycle recruitment as well as payrolling. This means that by using a staffing agreement with ETC, we will find the right candidate for you and put him or her on our payroll. There are many benefits to using a staffing company. Through a staffing agreement, you benefit from all of the services we offer as a recruitment firm – advertising open jobs, designing the selection process, checking backgrounds, and testing applicants. Once employees are selected, ETC will handle all aspects of hiring and payrolling. This includes payroll, handling any garnishments and required reporting, and paying applicable taxes and insurance.

Recruiting the right candidate can pose a significant challenge, especially when positions are highly specialized, the market is competitive, and candidate pools are tapped. ETC employs creative methods to attract the right candidates for your positions. We present you with candidates to review at no initial cost or commitment, only asking that you provide us with feedback so we can adjust our approach to fit your needs. ETC adds value by targeting the optimal candidate pool, designing an effective selection process, providing background and reference checks, running relevant tests and assessments, and assisting in the coordination of interviews and employment offers.

HR Consulting

Whether you are looking to support your current human resources department or interested in retaining an HR professional part time, ETC can help. As with all of our services, we tailor our consulting approach to meet your needs, large or small. We do everything from conducting one or two brief training sessions to update your team on a change in legislation or best practices, to showing you better ways to retain top talent. A well-managed HR department is key to a company’s success.

We’ve held contracts with the United States Department of Labor, the Houston Independent School District, the Houston-Galveston Area Council, the City of Houston, Harris County, and the State of Texas, managing large and small workforce projects. We are an approved H-GAC Buy vendor, which benefits government entities required to procure for staffing and HR services.
