INDIANAPOLIS, IN (December 7, 2017) AFIT STAFFING, INC. (aFit) a privately owned business specializing in information technology and medical was recently awarded the certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the State of Indiana. To qualify for the certification, the WBE must be at least 51% owned by qualifying women who possess expertise in the field, control the business enterprise, and are US Citizens.
