Iowa-Based WorkSource Staffing Named
Fastest-Growing Employment Firm in U.S.
West Des Moines, IA August 10, 2011 – In a study of the country’s leading staffing firms recording more than $1 million in revenue and compound growth of 15% or more between 2006 and 2010, an Iowa-based company, WorkSource Staffing, has achieved the top listing nationally, as reported by Staffing Industry Analysts, the industry’s leading trade source.
“This is a tremendous achievement for our staff and on behalf of the qualified people who have worked so hard to make this recognition possible,” states Christy Shannon, WorkSource Staffing President and Owner. “It is testimony to our wonderfully qualified team members who continue to bring the most qualified candidates as a fit to our clients’ needs.”
While WorkSource Staffing serves several market segments including manufacturing, warehouse/distribution, administration/customer service, it was one of two companies honored which primarily serve the industrial and manufacturing sector. In total, 42 staffing firms were reported to qualify for recognition with the top ten reporting audited financial statements. The top ten finalists averaged a median compound growth rate of 39.8% over the period.
“The fact that this recognition occurred during one of the more difficult times in our nation’s and region’s economy, especially for the manufacturing sector, suggests the quality and value our people bring to our clients. Hopefully, it is also a harbinger of improvement ahead for business and job seekers,” says Shannon.
WorkSource Staffing has offices in West Des Moines and Fort Madison, Iowa.
