Battle Creek staffing company opens TC office

TRAVERSE CITY – EmploymentGroup, a staffing company that employs over 3,000 in West Michigan, has opened a new office in Traverse City.

“We’re open for business and taking applications,” said Dave Young, Market Manager for the new operation. “Most of all, we’re ready to put people to work.”

The new office is at 1454 South Airport Rd. West next to Talking Book World.

“This is our first step in becoming a part of the business community in lower Northern Michigan,” said EmploymentGroup President and CEO Mark Lancaster. “We tend to do best in markets where the overall community commitment runs deep and the business environment is positive and forward-thinking–which is a good way to describe the Grand Traverse and surrounding areas.”

The office will be operated by Market Manager Dave Young, a Traverse City resident and attorney and former Michigan State Trooper. The company has assigned Liz Seelye as Business Manager. She is a five-year veteran of the company. Her most recent assignment was the on-site management of over 150 workers at one of EmploymentGroup’s largest customers.

In business for over 40 years, EmploymentGroup is a $70 million staffing company based in Battle Creek. Its primary business activity comes from the recruitment and placement of industrial and office personnel, as well as the management of non-core business functions, such as mail room operations and on-site staff management.

It has 12 offices in Battle Creek, Marshall, Lansing, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids and Muskegon. The Traverse City office can be reached at 929-3777. BIZNEWS
