Employee Solutions, a leading provider of industrial custom staffing services, continued its strong growth in 2015, expanding its operations and growing the number of people it put to work for clients to its highest number ever.
Employee Solutions today announced that it achieved 14,000 job placements by the end of 2015, a 27 percent growth over 2014.
The successful year was capped by the company’s ranking as the third largest staffing firm in North Texas in the annual Dallas Business Journalcompilation of locally-based companies in that category.
Employee Solutions continued to expand in 2015, including the opening of another office in North Texas and the launch of operations in Arkansas. Its growth has also driven the need for a new, expanded headquarters. The company broke ground in December on the headquarters facility, in Plano, and plans to move its operations there this summer.
“We are proud of many things about our company, but we are proudest of how many people we have found jobs for,” said David Bristol, CEO of Employee Solutions. “Despite the impact of lower oil prices, there is tremendous resilience in the regional economy, particularly in two areas where we specialize, distribution centers and manufacturing.”
Some of those job placements were ongoing positions with long-time clients, but in other cases, Employee Solutions added new clients and helped those clients add staff. For many of those employees, the initial Employee Solutions temporary hiring was only the start, as they went on to permanent full-time jobs with clients.
Also in 2015, Employee Solutions achieved its fourth straight annual listing on the Inc. 5000, thanks to a three-year aggregate growth rate of 53 percent. Also, Staffing Industry Analysts recognized Employee Solutions once again in its annual compilation of the fastest-growing staffing companies nationwide. The Dallas Business Journal also ranked Employee Solutions as one of the top 100 North Texas-based private companies in 2015.
As 2015 ended, Employee Solutions and its employees went all out to support its charitable “Holly Jolly Holiday” project, with employees and clients joining to donate some $6,000 and toys to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County.
In Houston, the company donated to Circle of Living Hope, and in San Antonio, employees participated in the Blacklight Run to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network. In Oklahoma, Employee Solutions employees donated time and money to the Autism Center of Tulsa’s Sensitive Santa Night, and in Arkansas, the company and clients donated to the Salvation Army Angel Tree.
For 2016, Bristol said the company will stick with its successful growth model, with expansion into new markets and a dual emphasis on acquiring new clients and growing its number of placements with long-term client partners.
