EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Professional Staffing Firms List ranks companies by the number of workers placed annually in the greater San Fernando Valley. These services are extended across all industries and include both full and part-time job placements. New to this year’s List is a column displaying how many hours each firm placed annually and weekly in 2010. Since the same worker can be placed multiple times and placements can range in duration, a clearer understanding of a staffing company’s success is presented in the amount of hours its placements are earning. There are 20 companies ranked on the List this year with a range of 2 to 750 local employees. The oldest firm here is Chicago-based General Employment Enterprises, Inc., established in 1893.
