VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 3, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — MaxHire’s rapid expansion into the contract staffing sector has prompted the company to grow 35% since this time last year and hire 12 new employees. The addition of integrated enterprise business intelligence and back office financial functionality to MaxHire staffing software has allowed the company to better align itself with staffing and temp firms and to experience stronger than ever sales in this sector.
MaxHire has been in a growth pattern since the company was established in 2001 but its growth has been on the fast-track particularly over the past two years. The average group size that the company is bringing on board now is 150% larger than it was two years ago. At any given time MaxHire has up to 80 ongoing implementations and the organization is now performing over 150 conversions from other ATS vendors each year. The headway that MaxHire is making into the staffing and temping market requires them to bring on additional highly skilled people, in all areas of the company.
MaxHire has hired three Project Managers who bring a wealth of recruiting industry knowledge and a combined 9 years’ experience in implementing staffing and recruiting software. Having worked as recruiters in the past, each Project Manager possesses a deep understanding of recruiting processes and workflows that will be invaluable when working with clients on their implementations of MaxHire. These Project Managers will be joining the Professional Services Team where the average amount of experience of each Project Manager exceeds 7 years.
The company also added three Sales Consultants to the Sales team who have over 14 years of software and IT sales experience amongst them and four Support Engineers to ensure that services levels remain high even as new users and groups are constantly being added. MaxHire also brought on an office manager to oversee operations at its new headquarters and a Systems and Network Engineer who will be managing MaxHire’s servers and network to ensure the company meets its 99.7% application availability service level agreement.
“This has been our largest round of hiring to date and it’s in response to our growth in the contract staffing market,” commented CEO, Peter Blitz. “We’re really excited to have these 12 new people join MaxHire as they all bring a great deal of skill and experience in the staffing and recruiting industry to the table and will be a valuable asset to our already exceptional team.”
