Our Story

Point B was founded 25 years ago as an alternative to the big management consulting firms. We are known for our connection to our customers—we put their success first in all we do. We are also known for bringing just the right people to work within our customers’ diverse workplaces. Truly caring about our customers’ success, and bringing the best people each time, builds sustainable results for our customers. Our net promoter score, a measure of customer satisfaction, demonstrates this year over year and is four times the consulting industry average.

These days the pace of business is lightning fast. Our customers are asking us for “more Point B” in many areas. A frequent request was for the ability to work directly with people discovered and vetted by Point B, especially within the realm of project leadership. Roles such as project managers, project coordinators, business analysts, and agile specialists, are in high demand because they can add horsepower to a specific project, and then move on to other companies. We learned that business leaders haven’t been consistently impressed with the quality of people they get from traditional staff augmentation companies. We heard that without addressing what makes each workplace unique, the resources other staffing firms provide may have the functional skills, but often don’t bring the full leadership skillset Point B is known for, nor do they match the company’s’ working environment. Creating successful resource placements to fit values and environment matching was inconsistent at best.

Point B Direct launched in 2019 and allows customers to work directly with talented people sourced by Point B. Point B Direct is not a typical flexible staffing provider. We use empathy and expertise to guide how we work with our customers and our recruits. We understand what makes project leaders successful and use that to drive our sourcing and vetting of talent. And we’ve figured out how to do this at the speed and price point expected in the staff augmentation marketplace. Point B Direct is excited to enter this marketplace, and to help you succeed with Point B’s leadership capacity.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us. We look forward to hearing from you.
