When Dr. David Elwood, PhD. founded Elwood Consulting as a pre-employment survey business in 1980, he had no idea that it would evolve into one of the nation’s largest contingent employment providers, Elwood Staffing. Under the leadership of Dave and his three sons, Elwood Staffing now serves over 6,000 clients, employs nearly 1,000 corporate employees and places over 100,000 associates in jobs each year. The company is recognized as one of the 15 largest industrial staffing firms in the United States and is scheduled to reach $1 billion in sales by 2015.
The Elwoods will provide an overview of how Elwood Staffing started and grew to be the successful company it is today.
