Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 3, 2010
As jobless rates in each of the four counties of the central Puget region continue to rise, Mom Corps, a premier staffing solution company, is opening a franchise in the Seattle region.
Jamie Flynn, the Regional Owner of Mom Corps Seattle, says the company will connect professionals in the area who are looking for flexible work opportunities with local companies that are seeking “on-demand” talent to meet their changing business needs.
Mom Corps provides companies access to top-tier, experienced talent ready to work on an “as needed” basis. Professionals are given flexible employment opportunities that enable them to balance their careers with their personal needs and responsibilities. With its expansion to the Puget Sound region, Mom Corps is providing a service that is beneficial to both businesses and professionals in these challenging economic times.
“I know firsthand-how powerful the Mom Corps concept is, having struggled for a number of years to balance the twin demands of family and career,” said Flynn, who lives in Seattle with her husband and three young daughters. “That’s why I jumped at the chance to help others in my region find that flexible balance.” Prior to starting Mom Corps’ Seattle franchise, Flynn spent more than a dozen years in commercial property development and law.
"We are excited to take our business to the next level and continue our growth through the development of the new franchise program in the Seattle area," said Mom Corps CEO and founder, Allison O'Kelly. "Franchising is a recruitment strategy to attract motivated, invested employees to Mom Corps and provide them with flexibility in turn." As the Seattle franchisee, Flynn will have access to the company's web site, database, proprietary systems, methods, training and recruiting tools.
Flexible, on-demand positions are a continuing trend around the country. "Uncertainty in the economy is making firms reluctant to hire permanent employees," said Robert T. Sumichrast, Dean of the Terry College of Business at The University of Georgia. "That adds to the demand for temporary and part-time positions, and companies are increasingly relying on these staffing firms."
Agencies specializing in filling part-time positions are doing well, reports Inc. Magazine. They predict this sector should continue to generate the most new jobs in the hiring industry. Agencies like Mom Corps that position themselves to take advantage of changes in the workforce by specializing in positions that offer flexible schedules are well-positioned to succeed.
“Mom Corps is a progressive company – what we are doing today is going to become commonplace in the future,” says Flynn. “I’m proud to be a part of this cutting edge movement.”
Mom Corps, founded in July 2005, provides professionals with tools and information to evaluate their career choices as they seek non-traditional employment. In just four years, Mom Corps' roster has grown to more than 40,000 candidates nationwide seeking flexible work schedules, and its client base has expanded to several hundred companies, including many Fortune 500 firms. Despite current economic conditions, O'Kelly expects both to double in 2010.
Most recently, Flynn served as a Regional Development Partner for Campus Crest Development, an owner and operator of university student housing, during which time she developed projects in Washington, California, Idaho, Nevada, Colorado and Texas. Prior to that, Flynn practiced international finance law in London at the Japanese investment bank, Tokyo-Mitsubishi International, and the law firm, Sidley and Austin. She started her career as an environmental lawyer with Swidler Berlin Shereff Friedman in Washington, D.C. Flynn holds a Juris Doctor from Georgetown University Law Center and a Bachelor of Arts from Duke University.
