Welcome to EGW Personnel Staffing, the traditional Staffing and Payrolling department of EGW Associates, Inc. Since 1969 EGW has been delivering quality candidates to our clients in the fields of Engineering, Manufacturing, Professional, and Technology. We are committed to the highest level of ethical standards while maintaining the flexibility to custom-design a hiring solution to fit your specific needs.
As a second-generation family owned business, we also understand the value of matching not only the knowledge, skills, and abilities of candidates to a job description, but more importantly matching the character and personality of the candidate to the corporate culture of the company and the needs of the position.
Every team has A and B players. And every manager needs to decide how to spend his or her time training - does she work hard with the B player trying to bring them up to speed? Or analyze an A player's performance to see how they can get even better? The answer? Follow the numbers.
New Data from Quarterly ASA Staffing Employment and Sales Survey
U.S. staffing companies employed an average of 3.2 million temporary and contract workers per week in 2014, up 5.4% from 2013, according to data released today by the American Staffing Association.
Five-to-seven years of Python experience; 10-plus years of .net; minimum three years of Ruby. In the software development world, nearly every job post seems to include thresholds such as these -- prerequisites intended to narrow and create a stronger applicant pool. You see it in virtually every other industry too: 10 years sales experience, five to seven years managerial.
There are flaws to this approach, namely that industries -- such as software development -- are evolving quickly. New languages crop up every day. Old ones fade. Candidates are educating themselves and practicing what's cutting edge on their own, outside the places that traditionally dole out those years of experience.
