EmployBridge (formerly known as The Select Family of Staffing Companies) is an American company that provides temporary and permanent staff.

A member of the American Staffing Association, EmployBridge is ranked as the 10th-largest employment agency in the United States (3rd-largest for industrial staffing, 10th-largest for office/clerical, and 12th-largest for finance/accounting)[1] and the 14th largest in the world.[2] The company primarily offers services in human resources, and has approximately 400 offices in 46 states.

On January 5, 2015, Select announced its plans to merge with Atlanta-based EmployBridge to form the largest industrial staffing organization in the United States.[3] The merger was completed on February 9, 2015.

The company's major divisions include ResourceMFG, ProLogistix, ProDrivers, Select Staffing, Remedy Intelligent Staffing, Westaff, RemX, Personnel One, Resource Accounting, MedicalSolutions, and StaffingSolutions.

History[edit]

EmployBridge was created from the combination of several staffing organizations that merged in the 1990s. In 1997, the company, originally formed as Staffing Resources Inc., combined its operations with Career Blazers, Inc., a New York-based staffing and permanent placement firm and became known as Career Blazers, Inc. On October 27, 2000, Tom Bickes and Shawn Poole led a management buyout of the commercial segment of Career Blazers and EmployBridge Holding Company was created. From its inception, EmployBridge has had a keen focus on specializing in the light industrial staffing space through its specialty brands. In October 2013, EmployBridge acquired Employment Plus and rebranded Employment Plus as ResourceMFG.[citation needed]


In February 2015, The Select Family of Staffing Companies (now Select) and EmployBridge merged, maintaining the EmployBridge name for the holding company.

Divisions[edit]

Select Staffing[edit]

Originally called Select Temporaries, Select acquired RemedyTemp, Inc. in 2006 and was renamed SelectRemedy briefly, before changing its name to Select Staffing in 2007.[4] Since then, Select Staffing has grown through the acquisition of several recruiting agencies that focus on clerical and light-industrial personnel in a wide range of industries. It still goes by the name SelectRemedy in the state of Illinois.

Prospective workers must go through a five-step screening process that includes integrity screening, formal application, behavioral interview, reference checks, employment eligibility verification, drug tests, and background checks. Applicants must also undergo skill assessments focused on their area of interest, as well as safety procedures.[citation needed]


ResourceMFG is a manufacturing staffing brand, placing temporary and direct hire employees within the total spectrum of manufacturing jobs including production, quality, maintenance, supervision, and all levels of management.

ProLogistix is a logistics staffing firm, recruiting exclusively for logistics employees. ProLogistix has expertise placing all levels of logistics professionals ranging from entry-level, skilled and managerial talent for the warehouse to senior executives of supply chains. ProLogistix provides solutions for temp-to-hire and direct hire positions.

RemX is the professional staffing arm of the EmployBridge. RemX places accounting and finance, office administration, information technology, engineering, contact center solutions professionals.

Remedy Intelligent Staffing[edit]

Remedy Intelligent Staffing is one of the company's nationwide franchise networks,[5] and has more than four decades of recruiting experience. Remedy uses what it calls the “Intelligent Fit” process that was formulated to include a client needs assessment, a skills and behavioral evaluation of the candidate, and finally, performance management to match job candidates with positions.

Westaff[edit]

Westaff is the other one of the company's franchise networks.[6] It was acquired in March 2009 when Select's parent company acquired the 61-year-old California-based staffing firm.
