Unique Advantage

The University's Exclusive Strategic Alliance Partner for Temporary Staffing Solutions

Unique Advantage, a provider of professional and support-level talent in administration, creative services, customer service, finance & accounting, human resources, information technology, and sales & marketing, is the University's sole source strategic contract supplier for temporary staffing solutions and a Penn Marketplace participating supplier.

In support of the University commitment to supplier diversity, and to best serve the needs of Philadelphia and the surrounding areas, Advantage Human Resourcing and Unique Staffing, Inc. formally joined together to form Unique Advantage LLC. This company provides a full service solution for your Talent and staffing needs. The combination of Unique Staffing, Inc. and Advantage Human Resourcing is the ideal partnership. Independently, both organizations have demonstrated excellent track records and are highly respected in the industry.

About the Contract

The Unique Advantage strategic supplier contract is the result of a formal group purchasing initiative in partnership with the University Health System. This group purchasing initiative enabled Purchasing Services, in collaboration with the University's Human Resources department, to leverage the combined temporary staffing buying power of the University and Health System. The negotiated contract pricing available to faculty and staff has been benchmarked as best-in-class pricing in Philadelphia while meeting the unique temporary staffing requirements of the University.
