Express Employment Professionals Expands In Boston

The Success of Express Employment Professionals Inspires Company to Open 12 New Offices in the Next 3-5 Years

April 02, 2012 // Franchising.com // Boston - As more businesses and job seekers continue to rely on the services of staffing firms, one of the world’s largest staffing companies is planning for growth and expansion in the Boston area.

A 5.1% state unemployment rate and the growing list of small- to medium-sized businesses that benefit from staffing firms have sent Oklahoma City-based Express Employment Professionals on an aggressive expansion campaign in Metro Boston. The company plans to open 12 locations in the state over the next 3-5 years, targeting Taunton-Fall River, Beverly, Brookline-Newton, Cambridge-Lexington, Dedham-Norwood, Downtown-Chelsea, Framingham-Waltham, Plymouth-New Bedford, Marlborough-Leominster, Whitinsville and Worcester.

Express Employment Professionals has employed more than 335,000 Americans through temporary help, flexible staffing, evaluation and direct hire since January 2011. Executive recruiting, professional placement, customized consulting and training/development services are also available to Express clients. According to a recent hiring trends survey conducted by Express, hiring increases are expected for the first quarter of 2012. The survey found that 30 percent of respondents plan to hire full-time commercial and light industrial positions, while 27 percent plan to hire for administrative and clerical positions.

Employer spending on contingent labor spikes following the recession puts Express in the perfect position for continued growth. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of workers placed by temporary-staffing agencies overall rose by 20,000 in January, making up 61 percent of the 243,000 non-farm jobs added by private employers.

Express Employment Professionals’ clients range from small and medium-sized businesses to Fortune 500 companies. Clients’ needs range from light industrial and office staffing to executive recruitment and professional staffing.

“Potential franchise owners interested in joining our company are really looking for a way to control their own destiny,” said Fred Muse, senior director of franchising for Express Employment Professionals.
