OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (PRWEB) July 29, 2016 - Oklahoma City-based international staffing company Express Employment Professionals was ranked the third largest industrial staffing firm and seventh largest office/clerical staffing firm in the U.S. by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA).
According to SIA, an independent research and data company for the temporary staffing industry, Express represents 21 percent of the revenue produced by the top five industrial staffing firms and eight percent of the revenue produced by the top 10 office/clerical staffing firms in the U.S.
“Because of our franchisees’ strong performance so far in 2016, Staffing Industry Analysts recognized Express among the top talent providers in the United States,” said Bob Funk, CEO and chairman of the board for Express Employment Professionals.
Funk believes the company’s success is due to the expansion of the company’s franchise network and its service-oriented culture. The company has 769 franchises including 20 new offices added in the first half of 2016. Express has a goal to reach 800 offices by the end of the year.
“We believe job creation and entrepreneurship are vital to the growth of the American economy. Nothing brings us more satisfaction than helping people find jobs and helping people achieve their personal goal of operating their own business,” Funk said.
“The growth we’ve experienced isn’t from acquisitions, but from the hard work and dedication of our franchisees and our headquarters support staff,” Funk said. “Our franchisees are personally invested in seeing their communities grow and thrive. They provide hope to job seekers and have a heart for putting people to work.”
After a strong performance in 2015, Express hit more than $1.4 billion in sales in the first half of 2016 while putting an average of 5,500 new people to work each week.
In Oklahoma, Express offices are placing on average 214 new people per week in jobs.
