About Us

Who We Are

Founded in 1999, Mindlance is a certified diversity business (MBE) and has been ranked one of the fastest growing U.S staffing firms by SIA for eight consecutive years.

We have also been consistently recognized as one of the best performing  partners to industry leading MSP programs including Kelly, Tapfin, ProUnlimited, Pontoon, GRI, WorkforceLogiq and Agile 1. As a recruitment centric talent acquisition company, Mindlance provides Technology, Engineering, Digital / Creative / Marketing, Clinical Research, Scientific, Finance, Professional and Payroll Management staffing services to Global 1000 companies across the US, Canada and India. With an annual revenue of over $ 200 million and growing, the Mindlance story is one of calculable achievement, made meaningful by the commitment to keep getting better in a way that is mindful and creates a balance that works for everyone.

We seek to promote equilibrium and harmony in everything we do. That is  the Mindlance way, and we believe it is what makes us who we are.

How We Started

So there we were in 1996, two kindergarten friends, fresh out of grad school MBAs. Alight with ideas, we were going to set the world on fire; we were going to change the way business was done. Y2K loomed, and the world of business was moving in completely unanticipated ways. We had entrepreneurial zeal and we wanted to start something new, but we also wanted to create a space where no one would be expected to play conventional roles, where we could provide intuitive solutions for the way businesses were heading. We wanted to rework “work”. We started thinking about working to offer talented professionals freedom and choices in the assignments they picked up-a kind of a freelance of the mind. In 1999, this synthesized to form our name and our calling-“Mindlance”.

That’s where we started. We have not quite set the world on fire. But in our own way, in a way that counts for us, we are changing the way business is done.

    What Drives Us

    Our core value system of cultivating mindfulness and balance gives us a worldview, so that our philosophy for work flows seamlessly from our philosophy for life.

    Mindfulness is not an idea for the mountaintop—we find that it makes great business sense. It makes us responsive, present and precise in what we say and do, and it keeps us both intuitive and balanced in our actions.

    We strive for harmony, and we aim to create the best possible outcomes. We find them through a commitment to what we call the 4Ps – People, Partnership, Performance and Process.

    Diversity & Inclusion

    Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion is a natural outcome of our worldview.

    We are a certified MBE (Minority Business Enterprise) and ranked as one of the largest US diversity staffing firms.

    We are excited to participate and take the lead in this vital, diverse marketplace that is a treasure house of cultures and experiences that are both unique and universal.

    At Mindlance, we celebrate the value of inclusion. Our culture and diversity imperatives are as broad as the increasingly diverse global talent market, and as specific as the particular diversity goals of our clients.

    Social Responsibility

    Social responsibility is the bedrock of our philosophy.

    We believe that we are part of an organic, living whole. We only thrive when  we all do. The community supports and empowers us immeasurably. We  manifest our gratitude by giving our attention and sharing resources where we think they might be best utilized.

    Causes & Charities we currently support:

    • Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps
    • Children International
    • CRY America
    • Sankara Eye Foundation
    • American Cancer Society
    • Indian Cancer Society
    • St. Jude Medical Center
    • Ronald McDonald House Charities
    • Autism Speaks
    • American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)

    Over the years, our level of engagement with the community has grown deeper and more meaningful. In sharing, we find much that is of value to us. We are enriched by all shades of the human experience, and by the profound awareness of our own humanity and belonging.
