A few competitive advantages of the Sanford Rose Associates business model:

  • First, Sanford Rose Associates methodology - Dimensional Search® - which creates a unique multi-dimensional profile that matches a candidate's chemistry, experiential translation, technical fit, expectations and culture.
  • Second, a history of excellence. The original Sanford Rose Associates office opened in 1959. Our first franchises were licensed in 1970. Since then, SRA International, the system's parent company, has awarded a limited number of independently owned franchises each year.
  • Finally, each SRA office specializes in a particular industry or occupation, and the professionals in each office are experts in that field, having the ability to provide a consultative approach to their clients.
