AtWork Personnel Branch Profile - Raleigh, NC
For Jerry Bland, owning an AtWork Personnel location is all about employee and client satisfaction. In January 2018, Bland opened his AtWork office in Raleigh, NC, near his hometown of Wake Forest. Before AtWork, Bland spent over 23 years in wireless telecommunications leading sales and operations teams, growing business units from start-ups to maturity. He chose to use this experience to start a business of his own, and he chose AtWork because of the training, branding, payroll and AR functions AtWork offers.
For Bland, this decision has made a positive impact in his life: “It [owning an AtWork location] has brought me closer to my community and my family, while providing me a better work/life balance by eliminating weekly overnight travel and hours I work each week.” One way in which Bland has become closer to his community is through one of his partnerships. His AtWork Personnel location is an employment partner for InterAct, a Wake County non-profit that provides free services to help domestic and sexual violence abuse victims.
Besides making a difference in the community through his partnership with InterAct, Bland is committed to candidate and client satisfaction. He believes that his AtWork Personnel office’s “mission is to match candidate skills, pay, work environment, and commute with employer requirements and culture. When we do this successfully, we experience high candidate and client satisfaction and lower employee turnover.”
