All of this helps keep the cost of business in line and allows us to have very healthy relationships with national vendors. It makes us a big customer.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 20, 2007
Benchmark Professional Careers a Chicago based career management and career marketing firm has affiliated offices throughout the U.S. Regional companies, while typically more attuned to local markets than their national competitors, often battle the problem of not having a nationwide presence.
Benchmark Professional Careers has conquered that problem through a network of affiliates throughout the continental U.S. The advantage of having these affiliates is three-fold. The first advantage is shared resources. Benchmark Professional Careers and their affiliated offices use common web development providers; common online resources; common marketing vendors; and other resources.
The management at Benchmark Professional Careers put it this way, "All of this helps keep the cost of business in line and allows us to have very healthy relationships with national vendors. It makes us a big customer."
The second advantage is shared information that helps to improve services and client care. "By having another view on the job market, we are able to envision changes and problem solving of potential issues before they happen. A company in the North may see a trend before we do, allowing us to be proactive."
Benchmark Professional Careers says that the third advantage to having affiliated offices is transferability of services. "Not only can we transfer services to an office across the country, but the client also wins by having the same online resources available with experts who are already familiar with their use in the new location."
Benchmark Professional Careers say their 'affiliates' are really strategic relationships with other privately owned entities that benefit both Benchmark Professional Careers and their clients. "We feel that if anything is good for our clients, it's probably good for us. Our clients never complain about having greater access; more exposure or better resources."
Among the 30 plus affiliates that they already have, existing affiliates have opened new offices in Southern New Jersey; and in the Philadelphia, PA area as of June 11. "We're excited about their growth because it benefits us as well. These new openings are markets where we had no previous relationships."
Benchmark Professional Careers' office is in Oakbrook Terrace, IL. The affiliated office locations are posted on their website http://www.benchmarkcareers.com.
