Staffing service hits 3 million hour milestone
A staffing company that operates an office in Grand Junction recently marked a milestone: 3 million hours worked in one week.
Express Employment Professionals announced that a total of more than 80,000 associates from more than 550 franchise locations in the United States as well as Canada and South Africa worked a combined 3 million hours in one week for employer clients.
“Regardless of the struggling economy and lackluster job market, we’ve managed to find jobs, put people to work and help employers who need qualified, temporary staff on hand,” said Nina Anderson, owner of the Express Employment Professionals franchise in Grand Junction.
The milestone of 3 million hours worked in one week also constituted a record in the 28-year history of the company.
“To put this into perspective, 3 million hours is equivalent to the time it would take to build three more Brooklyn Bridges to span New York City’s East River or 103 CN Towers to preside over the city of Toronto,” Anderson said.
“We are seeing companies start to hire as productivity increases, and we are hearing from clients that their business is picking up,” Anderson added.
In Grand Junction, Anderson opened the Express Employment Professionals office in 2007. Located at 1119 N. First St.,
Unit G, the office offers temporary help and direct hire employees in a variety of fields, including administrative, commercial, manufacturing, marketing and sales.
