  5. 5. Simply the BestFinancial Stability – especially in a time of economic challenges, clients need to be with staffing firms that arefinancially stable. PDS has one of the strongest balance sheets in the industry. This has resulted from having thetightest credit policy in the staffing industry, a lean management staff (two officers in the entire company) anddisciplined financial management.Recruiting Engine – we ensure that at least 50% of our staffconsists of recruiters. We provide them with world class SAS 70certified tools and training. Also because of our near 32 years ofexperience, our recruiting staff has the most telecommunicationexperience in the industry.Benefits – to attract the best candidates and employ the best con-tractors for our clients, we need to provide the best and most in-novative benefits. We were the first staffing company to provideHealth Savings Accounts, which combine the benefits of healthplans and 401(k) plans. We were the first staffing company toprovide the Health Reimbursement Accounts, a consumer drivenplan in which Aetna provides a cash contribution of $500 to the plan.Low Cost Paradigm – we operate on the lowest cost structure in the industry. With revenue exceeding $418million dollars in 2008, we operate with a lean management structure of two officers. We have no more than4 layers of management from the CEO. And as a private company, we don’t incur the expenses of managingshareholders and we don’t have the financial burden of public company expenses on lawyers, accountants andtransfer agents.Strict Management of above the line “controllable costs” – a staffing company’s financial success rides heavilyon its ability to manage the costs of workers compensation expense and unemployment expense. We aggres-sively work with experts like TALX and Zurich to maintain the lowest rates of claims in unemployment andworkers compensation in the industry.ABOUT PDS TECHFor over 30 years, PDS has been a leader in technical contract staffing and consulting.
