FOREIGN LABOR RECRUITMENT*(separate fee structure)*:
Alien Labor Processing and Certification is a very detailed and time consuming effort. The process is so loaded with bureaucracy, that it seems done purposely in order to discourage alien labor hiring.


Sherman Consulting has dedicated full time staff on Guam and in the Philippines who, process alien labor documents on behalf of our client. The difference between our service and the service of others is that Sherman Consulting integrates risk management capabilities in order to provide clients with the best labor force available with the lowest risk of potential liability.

We also have skin in the game as we have gone through the process ourselves for employees. This means we understand the challenges and issues that come up during the processing, interviewing, verification of documents, arrival on Guam, social and religious implications as well as injury and illnesses which happen during the course of hiring foreign labor. Our partners in the Philippines also understand this and we have partnered with them to conduct extensive review of applicants to ensure that the “challenges and issues” are nearly nonexistent with our recruits.


Because of this, Sherman Consulting offers a 100% guarantee on our recruits. If a recruit fails to meet the standards of our clients or if fraud is identified, crime is committed or sickness occurs unrelated to his/her work, then Sherman Consulting will replace the recruit free of charge to the client.


This service is not included in our basic representative services but can be quoted separately based on a per recruit fee. Previous clients include Forest Wheeler, Loyds, Citi Construction, RPR Enterprises, Bridge Investment
Group and some defense projects in Australia.
