Farris Associates (JFA) is a full service human

human resources management consultation.
Through a highly knowledgeable,
personalized, cost-effective, and superior service
JFA develops an understanding of clients and their
organization to become an extension of the staff.
"We are in the relationship

"Our goal is to satisfy our clients with an
ongoing human resources consulting relationship
rather than a one-time project."
The outcomes of this attitude are
