Alternative Staffing Alliance Features First Step
Last December, First Step Staffing acquired the Atlanta operations of LGS Staffing, a large, commercial staffing company, as a strategy to grow its average daily placements from 150 to 1,000 workers. A year later, through its relationships with some 70 community referral partners, First Step is recruiting ever higher numbers of homeless and other disadvantaged job seekers to fill these positions and achieve its social mission.
