Why Paltech?

Today it’s often a “sellers market” for people who have knowledge, skills, and energy. Every company proclaims itself “a great place to work,” and you can choose where to apply your talents. So why consider Paltech?

First and foremost, Paltech’s founding principles - customer service, customer satisfaction, and ethical behavior - relate directly to the treatment of employees.  Says founder Omar Kader: “It’s mid-level employees who are on the front lines dealing with our customers daily; not senior managers. If we expect our employees to perform at the highest possible level, we have to treat them as well as we do our clients.” He adds: “We also encourage the innovation that gives us a competitive edge.”

Our employee longevity figures say a lot: of our more than 200 employees, 12 have been here more than ten years; 20 have been here more than seven years; 23 others for more than four years, and 64 have been Paltech employees for more than two years. Turnaround among the technical staff is particularly low. When administrative people leave, it’s frequently because they’ve been recruited by the agencies where they’ve been working on a contract. And unlike some contractors, we have a long history of keeping our valued employees on board when contracts end.
