CHICAGO (PRWEB) March 18, 2019
Addison Group, a professional services and staffing firm, is looking to have a groundbreaking 2019 after a 2018 that was marked by impressive internal and external growth and industry recognition.
Addison Group experienced significant organic growth, and in addition to strong hiring was also able to promote over 130 people internally, furthering Addison Group’s commitment to professional development and career growth. Additionally in 2019, the company recently announced that Michael Samuels has joined the Executive leadership team as Addison Group’s Chief Financial Officer. Addison Group’s current headcount is 1,350.
Furthermore, Addison Group tackled unconscious bias in 2018 by implementing a standardized hiring process to help give all candidates a more equal footing. Addison Group also launched its internal accelerator program initiative, which paired a new hire with a senior employee to help propel their skills as a recruiter and place candidates more efficiently. Employees hired and trained via these new initiatives contributed to over $2MM in gross margin for the company.
Prioritizing its people-first approach and fostering a positive culture, Addison Group was named one of the top workplaces in Chicago, Oklahoma, and the Bay Area in 2018. Furthermore, Addison Group was listed as one of America’s Best Recruiting Firms by Forbes and won Inavero’s Best of Staffing Award for the eighth year in a row, illuminating its commitment to quality service, as less than 2 percent of all staffing agencies in the U.S. and Canada earned this award.
“This past year has been one of exponential growth and recognition,” said Thomas Moran, CEO of Addison Group. “Our team strives to deliver highly skilled and qualified candidates to our clients, and our internal and external growth, as well as a commitment to our people and culture, all play an integral role in achieving success. Redesigning our website to reflect our culture and growth was a clear next step to demonstrate our commitment to our staff and clients.”
2018 also marked a year of major market-share growth for Addison Group with its acquisition of Mondo, an IT, tech and digital marketing NYC-based staffing agency, and DLC Group, a Los Angeles-based finance and accounting staffing and consulting firm that Addison acquired in early 2019. With these acquisitions, Addison Group has scaled its portfolio of services in its IT and finance and accounting industries, all of which are complemented by Mondo’s and DLC Group’s business offerings. Aligning with Addison Group’s strategy to broaden its national service offerings, the acquisitions also introduced Addison to two new markets: Atlanta and Los Angeles.
In addition to expanding Addison Group’s footprint with its recent acquisitions and through vertical expansions to existing offices, Addison Group opened offices in Phoenix and San Antonio. Fueled by establishing a presence in the Southwest where accounting skill sets are in high demand, its expansion to Phoenix presents an opportunity to grow new branches and assist with the state’s skills gap. With an existing office in Austin, Addison Group’s entrance to the San Antonio market enables the organization to expand its footprint across the country and grow its network of candidates across central Texas where unemployment is lower than the national average.
“As we continue into 2019, we are optimistic about expanding our footprint nationwide and being a strategic partner to businesses who are looking to hire highly skilled and qualified candidates,” Moran said. “IT, finance and accounting are all industries that see exponential growth and have a steady demand for workers, and as such, our Mondo and DLC Group acquisitions position Addison Group as a trusted resource for businesses.”
