Community Spotlight: Express Employment Professionals Announces Increase in Numbers for Putting People into Jobs

Published Sunday, August 17, 2014

BRADENTON – Express Employment Professionals, the largest franchised staffing company in the North America, reported that through the first six months of 2014 it put an average of 5,370 new people to work each week, up from an average of 2,509 in 2009.

 

“From the depths of The Great Recession, we have doubled the number of new people being hired,” said Bob Funk, Express Employment Professionals CEO and chairman of the board. “The company is on track to employ more than 450,000 people by the end of the year.”

 

Additionally, through the first half of 2014, Express franchisees generated more than $1.3 billion in sales, posting a 16 percent increase compared to the same time in 2013 and surpassing the staffing industry average growth of 8 percent.  Since 2009, the staffing company has achieved 152 percent growth in sales, surpassing staffing industry sales growth of 54 percent.

 

The strong performance resulted in Staffing Industry Analysts naming Express as the fastest growing major staffing company, and ranking Express No. 1 in industrial staffing with 14 percent growth year to date in 2014. Other areas of growth for Express were in administrative staffing at 25 percent and professional staffing at 19 percent.

 

“Our owners and staff members have a heart for helping people find fulfilling work. When you focus on people first, the rewards are not far behind,” Funk said.

 

“We want to help get the economy rolling again and our vision to help as many people find good jobs by helping as many clients as possible find good people provides a good jump start for the economy,” Funk said. “There is an extreme sense of purpose and fulfillment when people are able to work and provide for their families. That’s why we’re committed to our long-term goal of putting a million people to work each year.

 

“The growth we’ve seen in our company is a testament to the culture of Express,” Funk said. “We have an incredible support team who is dedicated to helping people succeed at the franchise level, and our franchisees are personally invested in seeing their communities grow and thrive.”
