staffingFrom the company’s inception, we have specialized in mobilizing Right of Way personnel expeditiously and efficiently to project locations throughout North America. At Contract Land Staff (CLS) our Right of Way agents are not contract employees. They are direct employees with all the benefits of such – medical, dental, vision insurance, ST/LT disability, 401(k), flexible spending and more.

Creating a full-time staff was a deliberate decision on our part. It simply makes good business sense. Our employees have a vested interest in your success, which means they are more involved in the decisions they make on your behalf.

CLS can provide you with immediate access to an experienced, highly-qualified pool of Right of Way professionals who have the ability to hit the ground running. We have project managers, abstractors, negotiators, Right of Way agents, site acquisition agents, relocation specialists, property managers, permit agents, and more. Best of all? We give you the flexibility to choose the staffing solution that works best for you:

  • Virtual Right of Way Department – Complete or partial outsourcing of your land records management to CLS’s Right of Way professionals.
  • Individual Outsourcing – You select agents you want assigned to your project. CLS provides liability insurance, worker’s compensation, and unemployment insurance, and we take care of withholding and reporting all required federal and state tax. Agents are required to meet CLS’s stringent criminal history, motor vehicle, education, and reference screening standards.
  • Temporary Staffing of In-House Land Administration Specialists – Understaffed land or real estate department? Peak demand? Special projects? No matter what your short-term need is, CLS can provide you with talented Right of Way personnel to ensure your projects are completed in a timely and efficient manner.
  • Long-Term In-House or Field Right of Way Agents – When budget restrictions won’t allow for the hiring of permanent Right of Way staff, you can augment your full-time team with CLS Right of Way agents. Supplementing your in-house team with CLS agents gives you access to expertise that may not have been previously available internally, thereby boosting your overall performance.

CLS carefully selects the manager and land personnel to assign to you according to their past experience, project-specific expertise, suitability for the locale, proven ability to work with stakeholders, and their ability to meet schedules and deadlines. The performance of all CLS field managers is monitored by CLS’s Leadership Team to ensure we’re providing you with the talent you need. You will always know where your project stands with CLS.
