AtWork Group, an award-winning national staffing franchise, announced today the opening of its new office in Raleigh, extending the company’s national reach to nearly 100 locations. The new franchise location is owned and operated by local entrepreneur Jerry Bland, and will provide a variety of staffing services to businesses in Raleigh, Wake Forest, Rolesville, and Knightdale.

“Raleigh, enveloped by the Research Triangle Region, has enjoyed a booming economy for decades,” said Jason Leverant, president and COO of AtWork Group. “Jerry brings two decades of experience in the customer service industry to AtWork, and his experience in leadership and hiring will be a great asset to his future clients in this innovative and expanding North Carolina city.”

Bland worked in the wireless telecom industry for 20 years, serving in key leadership roles across six different business units. He has proven success in acquiring and developing talent, which has resulted in internal promotions and high levels of job satisfaction for his hires.

“The wireless industry is extremely fast-paced, ever-changing and hyper-competitive,” Bland said. “The pacing and demand for performance in that environment helped shape my drive and ambition for talent acquisition and placement. I decided to open an AtWork franchise after attending the AtWork Group’s annual owners conference last September and seeing first-hand what support they offer franchise owners. I look forward to being part of Raleigh’s business community, facilitating the timely placement of the best talent in the market, and helping job seekers with their search efforts.”

AtWork Raleigh will offer staffing solutions to businesses in all industries providing quality candidates for administrative, sales, management, manufacturing, warehouse, and light industrial positions. Flexible employment solutions will be available including temporary, temp-to-hire, payrolling and direct-hire placements.
