The largest franchised staffing company in the U.S. helped 456,660 people find jobs in 2014 and ranked as the No. 1 industrial staffing company by Staffing Industry Analysts.

Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB) January 20, 2015 - Express Employment Professionals, the largest franchised staffing company in the U.S., announced record-setting sales for 2014. Express franchisees generated $2.85 billion in sales in 2014, up 16 percent from 2013.

The company also helped a record 456,660 people find jobs last year compared to 396,000 in 2013.

"We have a long-term goal to put a million people to work annually," said Bob Funk, Express Employment Professionals CEO and chairman of the board. "Our franchisees have a laser focus on helping as many people as possible find good jobs by helping as many clients as possible find good people.

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

Sales for U.S. Express franchisees alone are up 147 percent since 2009 as staffing companies have become a significant driver of the nation’s job growth, while sales for Canada Express franchisees are up 127 percent.
