2020 is already off to a bustling start, but I didn’t want more time to pass before presenting our 2019 Year in Review. Whether you worked for us, partnered with us, invited us to speak at events, talked about us to your friends, or connected with us on social media…thank you for your continued support!
2019 was the year for a tight job market. With fewer job candidates available, we worked with new and long-time clients to fill more direct hire openings than ever. Understanding the candidate-driven job market helped us relay the importance of benefits and long-term, permanent commitments to our clients. This ultimately benefited the area’s local talent, too. Win, win! 2020 predictions show steady growth in our area, and it doesn’t hurt to be located between Northern Virginia and Richmond.
Simultaneously, our team forged a path towards more leadership development than ever this past year. More than half our internal team graduated or began participating in Leadership Fredericksburg. Many of us also served on the board of directors for local organizations. I say this, not to toot our own horn, but to demonstrate the strength of our business and our commitment to growth. We’re excited to see what 2020 (and the new decade) brings!
