Tote Bag Sponsor

Tote Bag Sponsor - Tactical Back Office

Tactical Back Office Personnel was born out of necessity.

The HME/DME industry is constantly in need of well-trained front and back-office personnel. Employees trained in industry standard software with excellent communication skills are hard to find. Then mixing those with someone who is reliable on top of everything else and you have described the dream employee. That’s where Tactical Back Office (TBO) comes in.

They understand how hard it is to attract the right employees. They also know what the high cost of turnover, recruiting, and poorly trained candidates can do to a company’s bottom line. That’s why they solved this problem by training qualified personnel capable of doing the job well.

Tactical Back Office offers its personnel competitive wages and benefits. Yet they can still provide you with a team for a flat hourly fee at a fraction of the cost of hiring locally! This mentality has helped them save their clients hundreds of thousands of dollars and kept tough-to-keep positions filled. Besides cost savings, their clients have seen the following benefits:

  • Under 5% turnover rate
  • Fully-trained personnel
  • Accomplishing tough to achieve KPIs
  • Loyalty and commitment to your business
