What Is PeopleShare?
PeopleShare is a company that makes the hiring and staffing process easier and more efficient for other businesses and potential job candidates. The startup is headquartered in Collegeville, Pennsylvania. However, now the company has 31 locations across the East Coast and Midwest regions.
The business was co-founded in 2005 by David G.Donald and Ryan J. Q. Clark. According to the startup’s mission statement, the company was created on the passion for being a great staffing partner for employees and customers and sets them up to achieve and reach a higher level of success. The four main values of the company are teamwork, passion, urgency, and reputation. As a result of these four pillars, PeopleShare acquired Best Practices Staffing in 2019.
Furthermore, the company has expertise in administration, accounting, clerical, industrial, and more areas of business. The startup accredits its success to the simple principle it established of devoting resources to people — all people involved in the transactions.
Since the company is privately held, there is no information available on the net worth of the business. However, some competitors to the startup are Aerotek, Robert Half International, and Adecco Staffing, USA. In 2020, the staffing and recruiting market was projected to be worth $119.4 billion due to the COVID-19 pandemic — a decrease of 21% from 2019. In 2021, this market is estimated to increase in value up to $136.4 billion.
The Business That Cares
This startup has slowly expanded across the US since 2005. Even as a large scale company, the business has not failed in expressing deep care and appreciation for its employees and the community. The Philadelphia Business Journal has given the startup the title of one of the “Best Places to Work” from 2007 to 2019. The company was even named one of the best places to work in Pennsylvania — two years in a row. Additionally, the company has donated to causes such as breast cancer awareness and a special spotlight on veterans.
While this charitable work is notable, the support for employees during the COVID-19 pandemic is also quite notable. The startup company recently announced it will be paying an extra $250 every month to its employees to help aid each of them with their student loan debts.
“Our employees have told us their student loan debt is a huge source of stress. We hope that this new benefit will lessen some of that worry and help them pay off that debt more quickly,” said David Donald, co-founder of the business. “This is our way of paying back the investment our employees have made in themselves.”
Ryan Clark, co-founder of the startup, added, “Our employees are the heart and soul of our company. This will help us get the best people to work and stay at PeopleShare. This benefit is the next step to show our employees just how much we care.”
This business has proven itself to be an asset to job seekers and customers, and it’s making a positive impact on the people of the community and the lives of its employees.
