The company is on track to employ more than 450,000 people by the end of the year.

Other areas of growth for Express were in administrative staffing at 25 percent and professional staffing at 19 percent.

“Our owners and staff members have a heart for helping people find fulfilling work. When you focus on people first, the rewards are not far behind,” said Bob Funk, Express Employment Professionals CEO and Chairman of the Board.

Mike Heffner, Franchise Owner of the Greenwood and Columbus, Indiana Express offices, says “We have seen tremendous growth locally here in the Indy metro area. Companies are struggling to find the talent they need to be successful and look to us to be the experts in recruiting and sourcing candidates for their open positions. The struggle is across the board in all industries as there are more jobs available now than people to fill them.”

“We want to help get the economy rolling again and our vision to help as many people find good jobs by helping as many clients as possible find good people provides a good jump start for the economy,” Funk said. “That’s why we’re committed to our long-term goal of putting a million people to work each year.”
