NEW YORK, Feb. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/
Green Key Resources, a leading national staffing and employment agency, is taking the next step in a strategic plan that will bolster the firm in 2018 and years to come. The firm has already grown since its inception in 2004, from a 3-person office to a team of more than 200 in 12 locations, employing more than 1,000 people across the country.
"2018 is going to be one of the most exciting years ever for Green Key Resources and for our clients and candidates," said Andrew Chayut, managing partner. "Over the last year we've invested in new technology, opened 3 new offices and 7 new business lines, and expanded the services we have always provided to employers.
"With our new capabilities we can fill the needs of our clients nationwide. The seven figure investment in collaboration tools, contract handling software and a powerful new applicant tracking and contact management system is not just an upgrade, but a sweeping technological overhaul that brings state-of-the-art technology to candidate placement and overall business development. Equally significant, it was done with direct investment from the partnership team and no outside financing.
"We have a strong, unleveraged balance sheet. We're also one of the few remaining agencies of our size that is still privately owned with our core partnership still leading the company," said Chayut.
That's especially significant, he explained, because it makes Green Key nimble, able to make decisions and take action without delay. "We don't have to ask permission from some far off committee when we need to improve a service or invest in tools that will make us more effective. Our partners work alongside our team members every day," Chayut observed. "They know firsthand what the trends are, what our clients need, what their competitors are doing, and they have a deep understanding of the industries and the local economies we serve."
Being privately held, Green Key Resources is more agile, able to respond swiftly to changing conditions and needs. So when the healthcare teams started hearing from clients that they needed help filling positions across the country, Green Key wasted no time adding both national and travel focused healthcare teams to the firm, including recruiters with deep connections in the healthcare sector.
Today, Green Key is invested in several key industry sectors, with recruiters who have expertise in Accounting and Finance, Financial Services, Pharmaceutical/Life Sciences, Healthcare, Office Support, Human Resources, Information Technology (IT), Hospitality, Legal Support, Creative, Advertising and Marketing.
Over the last several years Green Key Resources has been recognized for its growth and its excellence. For five years running, Crain's New York Business has named Green Key Resources the #1 executive recruiting agency in the New York metro area. In 2017, Inc. magazine included Green Key for the second time on its list of the fastest growing private companies in the nation. Also last year, Staffing Industry Analysts declared us one of the country's largest employment firms with over $100 million in revenue. And for the 2nd year in a row, Staffing Industry Analysts named us to their list of the fastest growing.
Not bad for a 14-year-old company.
"We've won other awards and have been recognized for other achievements, including for our website, our social connectedness, as the best and brightest, and as a great place to work. But the one recognition I'm most proud of," said Chayut, "is being named by Glassdoor one of the most highly rated staffing agencies in the country. "Glassdoor is where employees and job seekers can anonymously rate the company they work for. To be selected as one of only 14 agencies in the entire country based on what the people who work for us and who want to work for us say, is a special honor. It means we are doing things right for them, and right for our clients."
Summing up the last year, while looking ahead, Chayut said, "You could call it the 'Green Key Movement.' What we've achieved up to now is due to the great people we have and the special relationships they cultivate with our clients and the candidates. Technology will make us more efficient, quicker and more effective, but it won't replace the connections our teams build with the people who place their trust in us. It also won't change the mission the owners have, which is to remain privately held by our partners and to be one of the greatest places to work.
"That's the essence of our success: Caring about the people we recruit; understanding the needs and the culture of our employers; and being the sharpest, most knowledgeable professionals in the sectors and industries we serve."
