Fuse Verified H-1B Program

We spoke with many staffing firms in the formation of Fuse, and quickly discovered that the biggest opportunity for our cooperative impact is to improve the H-1B partnering process for our members.
The H-1B staffing market is like the Wild West, full of turmoil, uncertainty, and a lack of trust among participants. Sadly, many see H-1B staffing as a “necessary evil” that isn't working for well-intentioned firms, and least of all for the candidates who are stuck in the system.
Members in the Fuse Cooperative Network are creating a safe haven for effective H-1B staffing. We shine a transparent light on our process, incentivizing good practices, and holding members accountable for anything that’s contrary to our Membership & Cooperative Network Agreement.
