A reflection of the area’s growth, The Hiring Group, an Atlanta, GA based technical staffing firm, is opening an office in the heart of Greer.
Co-founders Chris Yarrow and Brooks Israel bring a wealth of technology and engineering staffing experience with them to the Upstate, to the company’s second location. The way they take care of their people, employees and clients alike, is a point of pride for the two, and they found this importance placed on relationships mirrored in the Greer community, especially amongst downtown businesses. “We’ve been introducing ourselves to the local businesses and they’ve been very welcoming. Taking care of people is central to how we conduct business and it seems that other businesses in the downtown share this philosophy.”
As to why they chose Greer for the company’s second location, Mr. Israel said, “Greer is central to Greenville and Spartanburg and is experiencing an exciting revitalization and growth period. We wanted the growth of our firm to be a part of the overall trend in Greer.” The Hiring Group has added three new employees to the Greer team since opening and plans to hire several more before the year ends.
But the main reason might have been closer to home. “We’re both from Simpsonville, our families are enmeshed in the community, and we enjoy coming to downtown Greer to eat dinner and spend an evening,” said Mr. Israel. “The new Greer office is an opportunity for us to come home.”
The Hiring Group is located at 104 Trade Street, in historic downtown Greer, and provides Direct Hire, Contract, Contract-to-Hire, and Employer of Record (Payroll) services. A few of their current clients include Michelin, Fluor, Synnex, Spartanburg Regional Health System, Greenville Health System, and Proterra.
