FLINT TWP. — In 1988, Qualified Staffing opened its first office along Linden Road in Flint Township. Thirty years later, with 30 offices across the United States, this Flint-based business continues to be one of the fastest growing staffing agencies in the nation.
During Qualified Staffing’s three decades, the company has employed more than 200,000 people in a wide range of professions that includes engineering, clerical and administrative, IT, light industrial, accounting, human resources and more.
So, considering such incredible growth and what has been a true all-American success story, what would be the best way to celebrate achieving this 30-year milestone?
“A party, right?” says Qualified CEO and Founder, David Wujciak.
“But the more we thought about it, the more we wanted to do something that would say thank you to the community that helped us get our start and supported us all these years.”
As a result, instead of planning a gathering featuring an expensive meal, Qualified Staffing is partnering with the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan to make a real difference this holiday season.
“We were thrilled when the team at Qualified called to tell us of their plans to donate $5,000 to the food bank,” says Food Bank of Eastern Michigan President, Kara Ross. “The need is always present, but at this time of year, the demand is so much greater. I can guarantee the impact Qualified Staffing’s unexpected gift will make will be tremendous!”
According to Ross, their relationships with grocers, food manufacturers and distributors, allow the Food Bank to leverage every dollar into six meals for those in need. While the donation may have been unexpected, it is certainly in keeping with Qualified Staffing’s corporate philosophy of putting people first over the past 30 years.
Wujciak goes on to say, “It would have been a nice party, but celebrating 30 years by helping to provide 30,000 meals is more of who we are, more of what’s in our DNA.”
