Conshohocken, PA (PRWEB) August 6, 2007
On the cutting edge of business in Pennsylvania, 21st Century Staffing announced today the launch of its niche recruiting practice designed to serve alternative energy providers making their home in the state.
"Thanks to the efforts of Governor Ed Rendell, Pennsylvania has become a top destination in the US for alternative energy companies and development projects, " says Merrit Baker, president and COO of Kopos & Baker, the management company that operates 21st Century Staffing, and recruiting industry veteran. "We already serve a number of clients in this arena. Formalizing the practice allows us to refine our offerings and services and reverse engineer the expertise of the team so we can further build on them."
Alternative energy is a growing industry in Pennsylvania and anticipated to create thousands of jobs in the next 5 years. The focus of this new practice will be to serve this emerging sector by identifying top talent and specializing in the precise skills needed for development and ongoing management of these alternative energy provider projects. Traditional methods for candidate sourcing will balance proprietary tactics designed to unearth top alternative energy talent for 21st Century clients in this sector.
"There's an increasing demand for engineers and other talent that understand wind, solar, solar thermal and bio fuels, "says Reid Baker, general manager at Kopos & Baker, one of the company founders, and the driving force behind the new alternative energy practice. "We not only perform contract recruiting and permanent placement for these clients. We also grow and manage their contingent workforce which is key to keeping their costs down and helping them stay competitive."
