PrideStaff, a national, franchised staffing organization, is pleased to announce the opening of a new staffing and employment agency in Hartford. The first franchise of its type in Connecticut, the new office will offer a full range of staffing, employment services and talent solutions in a variety of professional and light industrial disciplines. PrideStaff Hartford Metro Southeast is a locally and veteran-owned small business.

“Having lived and worked in the local Hartford area for more than two decades, I’m proud to be opening a PrideStaff office where I have deep connections in the business community and talent market,” said Jon Brink, Owner/Strategic-Partner of the Hartford Metro Southeast office. “Relying on my successful talent acquisition experience, military service and education, I see a tremendous opportunity for PrideStaff’s system, national resources and business model to make a real difference in Hartford job seekers’ careers and employers’ bottom lines. We have available and experienced talent to fit companies’ needs today.”

“By living out PrideStaff’s mission statement, ‘Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most,’ my team and I look forward to becoming one of the top five talent solutions organizations serving the greater Hartford area in the next five years,” continued Brink.

“I’m proud to bring the PrideStaff brand to Connecticut, creating great employment matches that fuel growth and success for clients and candidates alike. Our customer-obsessed team is experienced in talent acquisition, human resources and recruiting, and is immediately available to partner with local firms to solve talent gaps and challenges.”

As a national staffing services organization, PrideStaff provides outstanding service and guaranteed results by removing the guesswork from staffing. The Hartford Metro Southeast office uses this approach to recruit superior light industrial and professional candidates for employers in their market.

The landscape for talent in 2019 in Hartford continues to sharpen with skill shortages, low unemployment, higher minimum wage and constant need for firms to add competitive skills to their organizations. Brink thinks this is an ideal time to launch this new business.

“We have a dedicated and experienced talent team, focused on our customers, with unparalleled matching of the best-skilled employees in the Hartford area to the exact needs of our valued customers – with the ultimate result that all parties win,” added Brink. “Our team is looking forward to launching our business, helping employers find talent, and building successful careers for employees, as well as being involved in and giving back to our community.”

The success of PrideStaff’s approach is evident, as they consistently rank among the highest 1% of staffing firms in the industry. According to ClearlyRated, a business intelligence firm specializing in the staffing industry, PrideStaff earned a client Net Promoter® Score (NPS) as high as or higher than other well-known brands such as Amazon and Netflix.
