AtWork Group Named to 2013 List of Diverse Staffing Firms

Staffing Industry Analysts’ Diversity Staffing List recognizes woman-owned and minority-owned staffing businesses in the U.S.

August 20, 2013 // Franchising.com // KNOXVILLE, TENN. - AtWork Group, an award-winning multi-specialty national staffing franchisor, has been named to the 2013 Staffing Industry Analysts’ Diversity Staffing List. This year’s list includes a total of 236 firms, including 152 woman-owned, 102 minority-owned, 14 veteran-owned, 12 HUBZone businesses, and six service-disabled veteran-owned businesses.

“As the American and global economies are being redefined, franchise businesses are leading the way by offering opportunities for a diverse demographic to go into business for themselves, but not by themselves,” said Jason Leverant, AtWork chief operating officer. “Minority-owned businesses are the fastest growing demographic today, and AtWork’s turnkey franchise model encourages economic empowerment for all potential franchisees.”
AtWork’s franchise owners serve local and regional businesses throughout the U.S. with temporary, temp-to-hire, and full-time placement services.

According to the American Staffing Association approximately 11.5 million temporary and contract employees are hired through U.S. staffing firms every year. Recent reports indicated that the need for temporary work is expected to grow in the second half of 2013.

AtWork was also recently named to the Inavero’s 2013 Best of Staffing List for client satisfaction and the Staffing Industry Analysts’ Largest U.S. Staffing Firms for 2013.
