With the resurgent automotive industry driving employment needs in Michigan, staffing and outsourcing services firm EmploymentGroup (EG
) is poised for another big year.
President and CEO Mark Lancaster says his firm had an outstanding year in 2012. "[The automotive industry] drives Michigan and drives the country. It continues to be strong. Overall, we placed over 6000 temporary employees last year, and 995 were then hired on customer payrolls. Our services provide a gateway to really good jobs."
To help the firm manage its growth, EG also announced two recent employee promotions and new hires within its EG and EG Managed Services operations. Ti Elzinga has been promoted to sales account manager for the Grand Rapids and the Lakeshore region, and Brenda Howard was hired as sales account manager for the Lansing, Battle Creek, and Kalamazoo regions.
Besides the automotive industry, Lancaster says the healthcare and furniture industries are also growing and a source of the firm's placements.
