[Kalamazoo, MI]: WSI (Workforce Strategies, Inc.), an award-winning staffing and recruiting firm, celebrates its 20th year as a purpose-driven employment solutions provider. 

Since opening its door on February 1st, 2001, WSI has helped companies strengthen their employer brand to attract qualified talent, increase productivity, and boost retention. The company offers temporary staffing solutions, permanent direct hire placement, and business development services. 

WSI Recruitment & Staffing was founded by President/CEO Jeff O’Brien with the goal of providing best-in-class employment solutions to fulfill the ever-changing workforce. Over the past 20 years, the company has grown from one office, headquartered in Kalamazoo, to eight offices across the state of Michigan, northern Indiana, and central Ohio. “ This year marks a very special year for all of us at WSI. We could not be what and where we are today without the incredibly talented team members throughout our organization.  They are dedicated, passionate and a real joy to work with each and every day” reflects O’Brien. 

Throughout its twenty years of service, WSI has remained committed to creating a positive and fulfilling workplace for associates, internal staff, and clients they serve. This consistent commitment has been recognized through multiple awards and recognition across the nation. 

“It’s an honor to work for an organization that cares so much about their employees and clients,” says Steve Beebe, WSI Vice President. “To see that reflected through these awards really is testament to our longevity and success in the staffing industry.”

Reaching this milestone would not be possible without the clients that WSI has had the pleasure of partnering with throughout its twenty years. Here’s what clients are saying about WSI: 

“We’re very happy with our partnership with WSI. This was the best google search I’ve ever done.”

“They are willing to think outside of the box to make sure our needs have been met.”

“Amazing customer service and attention to detail. The team at WSI reaches out often to ensure all our needs are supported. I personally have worked with over 20 different agencies in my career and the team at WSI have exceeded my expectations on all fronts and continues to deliver flawless service and a commitment to their clients unlike what I have experienced in the past with other agencies.”

“WSI provides us with the best service possible. Though we may not be a large company we are treated as though we are. Communication is top-notch. I’ve dealt with many temporary services in my work history, but I’ve never come across one as good as WSI.”

The company will be celebrating this milestone throughout 2021 with its theme “Strive to Thrive!”. From appreciation initiatives to company-wide virtual celebrations, WSI plans to properly honor staff, employees, and clients for all of the hard work and dedication that has gone into building the company to what it is today. Here’s to the next twenty years!
