Cooperative Staffing Accelerator

Your Total Staffing Support System

Simplify your Path to Staffing Success

For staffing startups looking to scale delivery and operations, Fuse provides a low-cost model for on-demand recruiting, tech stack, and back-office support, all within a cooperative network structure.

Do What You Do Best.
Fuse for the Rest.

Leading your own startup staffing firm is a daunting task. The skills you've honed —developing client relationships and delivering solutions—are the most important elements for a successful new staffing firm. But that’s not enough to build a profitable business in today’s super competitive market. You also have to hire and manage recruiters, invest in a leading edge tech stack, and build a back-office function. It’s time consuming, costly, and full of uncertainty. 

With Fuse, you finally get to focus on what you do best: finding, landing and managing clients. We'll take care of all the other things that are taking up your sales time, and holding back your potential. Fuse will accelerate your staffing business with a cooperative and shared service model that provides you with a complete system for recruitment delivery, tech stack, and back office operations.

Fuse Delivers

Now you can confidently delegate operations while still marketing your organization as an independent staffing firm. Joining the Fuse Cooperative gives you:

No Cost Recruitment Engine

Using Fuse’s recruitment sub-vendor members and the Gustav VMS, Fuse offers specialized and expert delivery without the need to hire any recruiters.

Fully Managed EOR / Back-office

We will help you set up and take care of all administrative, onboarding and payroll tasks with a fully white-labeled and leading edge solution. Plus, all your billings generate patronage in the co-op.

Premium ATS at Minimal Cost

Use Bullhorn or JobDiva, which are both integrated with the Gustav VMS, so you can grow and manage your business without spending too much on the tech.

Sales & Marketing Support

Differentiators and marketing strategies to boost your lead gen, value prop, and brand visibility, including usage of Fuse’s Verified H-1B Program which is an easy door opener with clients.

Shared Services & Community

Access to valuable resources, expertise, and a network of industry pros, which will amplify your staffing firm's capabilities.

Own & Lead the Co-op

As a Fuse member, you have a direct influence over our direction, service offerings, and features of the Gustav VMS platform. Shape the future of the co-op to align with your goals.

Your Cooperative Advantage

Joining Fuse makes you a member of the staffing industry’s first and only platform cooperative. That means any of the fees you pay for Fuse’s shared services are counted as “patronage” in the co-op, which gives you voting and profit sharing rights. 

As a prime vendor member of our Cooperative Network, you’ll be matched in the Gustav VMS with sub-vendor members who have specialized recruitment capabilities. When placements are made your revenue splits will be governed by Fuse’s Network Services Agreement and invoicing is taken care of by our back-office services.

Plus Staffing’s Best Solution for H-1Bs

Fuse is addressing the uncertainty in the H-1B staffing market through our Verified H-1B Program, which ensures transparency and accountability between our cooperative network members.
