[Paw Paw, MI]: Workforce Strategies, Inc., an award-winning staffing and recruiting firm, accelerates growth by establishing an office in Paw Paw, MI. Headquartered in Kalamazoo, this new office marks the seventh WSI location. The grand opening will take place on Thursday, August 27th where the company will also be hosting a job fair from 10 am – 2 pm.
The new office is located inside Cheeky Print Shop, a custom apparel and paper printing business, at 233 East Michigan Avenue. How are staffing and printing related, you may ask? Through a familial tie of its employees, of course. The owner of Cheeky Print Shop, Jeff Bohms, is the brother of WSI Director of Staffing Operations, Erica Bohms-Coon.
“This has nothing to do with sibling rivalry, I swear,” laughs Erica. “WSI has several employment opportunities throughout VanBuren County, and we identified Paw Paw as the ideal location to serve job seekers there, as well as Mattawan, Decatur, and Lawton. So when my brother offered the available space in his apparel shop, we made shirt to jump on the opportunity.”
WSI Workforce Strategies, Inc., works with various companies throughout Southwest Michigan in industries ranging from food manufacturing, light industrial, warehouse, facility services, and more.
Steve Beebe, Vice President at WSI Workforce Strategies, Inc. says, “Most job seekers don’t think of going to a staffing agency for help finding a permanent job – many of the companies we work with are looking for workers they can hire in permanently.”
Additionally, WSI is currently conducting two lucrative referral programs where job seekers can earn money referring others to work for WSI. Referees have the chance to win $200 per referral, plus a chance to win free rent (up to $1,000).
Due to COVID-19, all applicants will have their temperature taken with a temporal scanner prior to entering the building. Face masks are required inside – if you don’t have one, WSI will provide one for you. Interior areas will be marked with 6-foot distances and there are hand sanitizer stations throughout the building.
WSI Workforce Strategies, Inc., is anticipating a large turnout for the Job Fair on August 27th. To help expedite the process, job seekers should bring two forms of identification and be prepared to pass a drug screening. Applicants can also call the WSI Paw Paw office at (269) 488-5138 or read the Paw Paw Grand Opening blog article for more details.
