Forecasted Economic Growth Brings Award Winning Staffing Service to Florida

With reports from the Institute for Economic Competitiveness at the University of Central Florida predicting that Florida’s economy will continue to thrive over the next several decades, Bear Staffing Services moved their corporate headquarters to Fort Myers, Florida.

FLORIDA, September 30, 2018: Ranking third this past year in overall job creation and with an unemployment rate at a 12-year-low mark of 3.7%, Florida’s total economic output is predicted to more than quadruple from $1 trillion to just over $4 trillion over the next 30 years according to a report released by the Institute for Economic Competitiveness at the University of Central Florida. This forecasted expansion is based in part the continued growth of Florida’s population, which is bolstered not just, by retirees but also by workers looking for opportunity.

Having seen unprecedented growth themselves during 2017, Bear Staffing Services officially moved their corporate headquarters from New Jersey to southwest Florida citing economic opportunity as one of the reasons for the move. Following the move, Bear Staffing Services hopes to build partnerships with both the businesses and individuals in the community.

“This is one of the fastest growing areas in the US and by all accounts the health and IT sectors, two of our specialties, are going to continue to grow and that means there will be a demand for high quality staff,” said Sherri Johnson, CEO and Co-Founder of Bear Staffing Services. “When an area experiences expansion like this top talent becomes more and more difficult to find and that is the problem we solve.”

Providing staff for medical, IT, industrial, clerical and accounting positions, Bear Staffing Services attributes their own rapid growth to their philosophy of providing convenience to both their clients and their ability to find the right person for the right job. Having helped hundreds of businesses over the past 13 years, Bear Staffing Services is ranked as one of the Top 11 fastest growing staffing firms in the country according to the 2017 Staffing Industry Analysts ratings and has seven offices across the country.
