Our Ethics

The most ethical and professional standards in the recruiting industry are observed at all times by all BMRS Associates. BMRS will never recruit Candidates from current Client Companies and will never recruit a placed Candidate from any Client. Confidentiality is maintained at all times. We will never submit a candidate’s resume to any position without their permission. We have confidential offices at our headquarters where candidate and clients can meet off-premises from the restaurant locations. Our Test Kitchen provides a discreet location for our Chef Candidates to cook for the BMRS staff and our Client Companies. BMRS believes strongly in giving back to the community and to our industry. We host special celebrity chef dinners at our Test Kitchen for select charities as well as cooking classes for special needs children.
