BSI/BP2 started as Bolder Temporaries in 1992. What we did not know then, nor foresee, are all the ups and downs inherent in this industry. The US went through three distinct down turns since we started business. First, it was the Tech/plastics down turn, then 9/11 and terrorism and now the financial downturn. The most recent financial downturn has been the worst of the three, and it will not be undone for many years to come. We have felt these severe and sudden changes every 6-7 years.
We began feeling the latest downward spiral in the fall of 2008 when clients let go of their contingent staff in order to save their own employees. In 2009, we experienced a record drop in business. Like so many other companies, we made the sacrifices necessary to hold on to our top employees. These employees helped BSI/BP2 arrive at the place we are today.
Over the last year we have experienced a tremendous increase in business. In fact, 2010 has been one of the best years that BSI/BP2 has ever had. As a result of this business, we have been able to increase our marketing efforts, hire new internal staff, revamp our website, and plan for a move to a new location to better service our clients and candidates. We are consistently receiving several new orders a day from new clients looking to bring on temporary, temp-to-hire and direct-hire employees. Best of all, we are placing a record number of people into new jobs every day.
According to the American Staffing Association, the Staffing industry is a leading economic indicator when the economy is emerging from a recession. There is still much to be done, but if our success over the last year is any indication of the status of our economy, then we can look forward to climbing out of this recession.
BSI/BP2 is proud to fulfill the needs of our clients and candidates, and help get our economy back on track!
