Products & Services
From a Dream to an Industry Leader
In 1978, George Rogers had a vision, a dream to create a new type of staffing organization—one that offered the resources and expertise of a national firm with the spirit, dedication and personal service of smaller, entrepreneurial firms.
The result is PrideStaff, a national staffing organization delivering innovative solutions to the challenges employers face every day. Through a combination of strong leadership at the national and local level, PrideStaff has consistently delivered exceptional service to our franchisees, clients and field associates. Over our 25 plus year history, our model has been highly successful. Year after year, our growth has consistently outpaced the growth of the staffing industry.
A business is only as good as the people it employs and the processes it follows, and PrideStaff is no exception. Our greatest asset is our people and their dedication to our core values:
- Act as a Trusted Partner to our clients, employees and franchise holders.
- Maintain honest, open and ethical relationships with others.
- Never be satisfied with "good enough." Continually strive to set higher standards for performance.
Profitable & Fulfilling Work
Staffing is a very rewarding business…both emotionally and financially. It's a business dedicated to helping people. As a PrideStaff franchisee, you'll provide young professionals with invaluable experience. You'll give working parents more flexibility to balance their work and personal needs. You'll enable individuals to advance in their careers. And you'll provide businesses with the people and creative solutions they need to get work done efficiently.
Of course, staffing can also be a very lucrative business. With businesses increasingly demanding more "just-in-time" solutions to their hiring needs, and the US Department of Labor forecasting increasing talent shortages over the next 20 years or more, the staffing industry is poised for significant long-term growth. In fact, the staffing industry is forecast to produce more new jobs than any other industry through 2012. And PrideStaff franchisees will be at the forefront of capitalizing on that job growth.
Access to Success
The most successful franchise field operations receive support from the Home Office that is designed for franchisee needs, not for the central organization's convenience. Personalized training by our VP leadership team and our professional training and development team, provides support and guidance that will be instrumental components of your success as a PrideStaff franchisee.
The world's business climate has never been more competitive. Your personal success as an independent business person and franchisee often depends on the quality of your marketing programs and sophistication of your sales support materials. When many companies compete, the details that define the image, philosophy and business presence can be the deciding factors. Proven marketing programs are at the core of our success and have been recognized by the American Staffing Association as among the best in the industry.
Competitive advantage of the product / service: Niche is high-level service to “small business”, as defined by the U.S. Small Business Association, clients who do not have a procurement department on the local level – we also have a competitive advantage over most of the industry as we are super service oriented and this is mainly due to the fact that we are franchised, which very few staffing services are – Ranked as “Best of Staffing - Client”, “Best of Staffing – Candidate” (less than 1% of staffing services); and “Leading Provider” in FORBES Magazine for three years in a row! Just received our 2nd Voice Award, in a row, from American Staffing Association for Marketing (highest award in our industry).
