With almost 25 years of experience in the recruiting industry, JSG Executive Vice President, Ken Slater, brings a wealth of knowledge and strategy to how we do business. We sat down with Ken to learn more about how JSG got where it is today and what is on the horizon in the new year. (Spoiler alert: it’s all about creating a “flexible, committed relationship.”)
What are the key factors that allow JSG to achieve such large revenue growth?
Clients are increasingly looking for scalable and flexible recruiting partnerships. Our focus is to provide flexible, long-term solutions. When we partner with a new company, we’re poised to adapt to their procedures and requirements. We’re small enough to be flexible and we’re large enough to be able to provide a variety of talent and services. Our clients like that. JSG works hard to build a rapport with our clients so that we can quickly and efficiently align our strengths with our clients’ needs.
Which industries are seeing the highest potential for growth this year?
Companies in our top industries, Mining, Healthcare, and Banking, will continue to look for ways to deliver better products, advanced technology, and compete with growing competition. Our clients will look to remain competitive in a candidate-driven market, keep up with the latest technology trends, and provide superior products and customer service throughout 2018. We feel our services to these industries will remain in demand during good economic periods as well as difficult ones as we provide specialized services, flexibility, and efficiencies that are desirable to our clients in any economic environment.
What is on the horizon for JSG in 2018?
In 2018, JSG will continue to focus on growing our successful client relationships. As a company, we will strive to sustain value for our clients by providing quality talent to match their needs and developing and executing flexible service plans that fit their evolving needs. As the industries that JSG services continue to advance and develop, we will quickly and efficiently align our strengths with our clients’ plans and visions. It has always been our goal to help our clients achieve goals, because when they succeed, so do we.
