Corporate Social Responsibility

What We Deliver

How we conduct ourselves as a company has always been, and will always be, at the core of HMS. We hold certain core values near and dear to our corporate heart: integrity, honesty, respect.

In fact, HMS President & Owner Leah Heimbach has been known to tape a copy of our core values to the computer monitor of new team members. You will find those values listed on the very first page of this website.

Hiring Practices

Our hiring practices and policies reflect our values of diversity and inclusion. We adhere to both the letter and spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act. And we maintain strong recruitment outreach efforts with veterans’ organizations to attract people who have honorably served this nation

Environmental Practices

Out of concern for sustainability, we have been transitioning to paperless work processes.
