General Employment Turns To TempWorks Enterprise Staffing Software as the Preferred Platform for Continued Growth

OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether you need a new team member or a new career path, companies and candidates have been turning to General Employment for staffing and recruiting solutions since its inception in 1893. And when the growing public company needed a robust staffing software solution to manage a full range of front and back office functions for their 22 offices, they turned to TempWorks Enterprise.

"After completing several acquisitions we needed to consolidate to a single platform, and following a lot of due diligence, we went with TempWorks Enterprise," said Andrew J. Norstrud, Chief Financial Officer, General Employment Enterprises. "Our software selection was not only based on the consolidation of our current operations, it also had to create the technology foundation for the future.  Our strategic growth plan includes both internal expansion and the acquisition of several smaller companies. Our goal is to be among the top 50 staffing companies in the next three years."

For a growing company that offers flexible direct hire, contract, and contract-to-hire options in the Accounting, Engineering, IT fields, Skilled trades and Light Industrial, staffing software needed to be flexible, and scalable.

"We can address a staffing company's challenges with a one-click platform that is effective, efficient, and ready to grow," explains Casey Kraus, Vice President, Sales, TempWorks. "Enterprise simplifies the management of a complex business by providing the information most critical to your business on a real time basis. This single software platform provides a staffing company with both the front and back office to enable your company to concentrate on your own clients, customers and candidates."

When General Employment began searching for a new staffing software platform, they required a single software solution provider that could provide a fully integrated system that was intuitive, efficient and did not require an abnormal amount of training that could handle the entire business cycle, including recruiting, CRM, robust payroll, time reporting and social media management. 

"Also, the use of Applicant Center and WebCenter provides add-on tools that should both reduce the amount of time and energy it takes an applicant to be placed at General Employment, as well as leads to increased communication with both employees and clients," states Kraus.

"Technology is a critical component of our business plan, and our foundation for future growth," Mr. Norstrud stated, "and TempWorks is central to our strategic plan."
