Candid Conversations

Our job is to recruit and place people for local employers across Arkansas – real people. And real people deserve honest and clear communication.

Certified Woman-Owned

We’re proud to be a woman-owned business with two decades of experience. Our success comes from our passion for people and commitment to adapting to emerging trends.


We care about the people who live and work here in Little Rock. After all, it’s our home too. When we’re not sifting through resumes, you can find us giving back to our community.

Owner, Staffing & Recruitment Manager

Shannon Steed

Shannon has 20 years of experience developing relationships and carving out her area of expertise. Her commitment to staffing excellence led her to open her business a little over 10 years ago. As a business owner, Shannon focuses on the success of both employer clients and job candidates. When she is not working, she and her husband Greg love traveling, cheering on the Razorbacks, and attending concerts/ live music events. For Shannon, family is everything – and she especially loves to spend time with her grandson Charlie (who is the cutest) and her retired racer greyhound, Wally.

Shannon was named one of Soiree Magazine’s Women to Watch.
