Staff Management Parent Company Announces Positive Job Outlook
SeatonCorp, Staff Management | SMX’s Chicago-based recruiting and staffing parent company, invited Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to its headquarters to help announce a positive employment outlook. We were all very excited to have the Mayor on hand to share this good news. “A key aspect of SeatonCorp’s mission is job creation in America, and Chicago is the ideal place for us to continue to recruit strong personnel and expand our business,” CEO Patrick Beharelle said. “We have seen the exciting things that are happening in this city, and we are proud to be a part of its progress.”
On the day of the Mayor’s visit, Fox News Chicago reporter Mike Flannery toured Seaton’s headquarters where the company has just signed a 10-year lease extension. Flannery reported that Seaton’s “growing client list reads like a roll call of American industry. Many companies have reduced the payroll of their own personnel departments by turning work over to PeopleScout, Staff Management | SMX and other SeatonCorp subsidiaries. They’ve become the personnel department for some of the country’s biggest corporations, interviewing, screening and hiring workers for them.” Seaton CEO Patrick Beharelle explained “we hire about 220,000 people a year. To put that in perspective, every 34 seconds we make a job offer.”
This news follows other positive growth announcements by Seaton, including being named as one of the Top 10 Job Creators on Inc. Magazine’s annual list of the top 5,000 fastest growing private companies in America. Additionally, Staff Management is a Staffing Industry Analysts’ Top Ranked Staffing Firm, appearing on Staffing Industry Analysts’ 2011 Lists of Largest Global, U.S. and Industrial Staffing Firms, and ranks in the top 1% of staffing firms worldwide by revenue.
