“Shop local” is a trendy statement we often see in our culture of small businesses and entrepreneurs, and we fully support this message. Shopping local and utilizing local businesses for your needs (retail, services, etc.) not only gives you higher quality work in many circumstances, but also puts money back into your city’s economy, which is great for your own community. However, another aspect of this community support is hiring local. We want to encourage local business owners to hire residents of their own towns and cities first. After all, these people live among the very customers and clients you are trying to reach, and they can be your biggest champion within the community if you give them a chance.
Here in Lakeland, PHR Staffing Solutions is ready to help your business support our local economy by hiring employees in and around our own area. How?
With our office locations. We make it easy for applicants to bring their resume to us personally with three offices located in Lakeland, Winter Haven, and Lake Wales. By keeping our own business planted right here in Polk County, we are more likely to glean employees from here as well.
Attendance at local job fairs. We love when the opportunity to participate in a job fair arises, especially if the fair or expo is in our own area These fairs are perfect places for residents to come by and meet us, give us their resume or fill out an application, and get more information about how we work. We always enjoy face-to-face time with potential applicants at these events!
Our advertisement and recruitment strategy. We push hard to keep our advertisement for openings local, by using tags and wording specifically for searches pertaining to cities within our region. Unless we take on an out-of-the-area business looking for employees (in which case, we advertise for that position individually) we typically keep our marketing strategy targeted at the Central Florida area and more specifically, Polk County.
If you are ready to grow your business by hiring local, PHR Staffing Solutions is ready to help. We are continually recruiting for local companies of all types and sizes, and offer assistance with staffing needs and management of temporary employees or temp-to-hire positions. Give us a call and find out what we can do for you!
