AtWork SoCal Celebrates 3 Years and Thousands of Local Job Placements

Started in 2015 by local entrepreneurs, the rapidly-growing company has achieved nearly $30 Million in Sales to Date

AtWork Personnel, an Award-winning national staffing franchise, announced it’s third anniversary doing business in the Temecula Valley, where the company specializes in employment services. During that time, AtWork found jobs for more than 7,000 candidates with local employers, including full-time, direct-hire career placements, Temp-to-Hire and temporary contract work.

“Thinking about the first day with just four of us opening our doors in the Temecula office, I feel a great sense of accomplishment,” said Regional Director Judy Contreras, who attributed the startup’s success to treating people right. ”You have to treat applicants and clients with respect and professionalism, and make sure to follow through on promises made to ensure long-term success in what is the ultimate people business.”

The Temecula office, Contreras said, made itself indispensable to local employers large and small who rely on AtWork to source, recruit and and vett applicants, reducing the burden to HR departments and streamlining employers’ hiring pipeline in a business climate of low unemployment and high demand for talent.

Soon after opening the Temecula AtWork office, the company expanded with an additional location in Palm Desert that services the Coachella Valley’s numerous music festivals and events, local municipalities, private employers and most recently, led the way as the first major national staffing agency to actively pursue the specialized labor needs of the rapidly-expanding Cannabis Industry.

“Cannabis is transforming local economies in the Coachella Valley,” said Branch Manager Lisa DeLuna. “What many don’t realize is legalization resulted in a need for all types of positions, just like any other industry. It’s a real ground floor opportunity and we are doing our part to assist this new market in the standardization of labor practices.”

The company’s third location was established in Carlsbad in early 2017 to serve North County San Diego. The Carlsbad branch focuses on filling clerical, light industrial and direct-hire career placement positions, primarily in the manufacturing, production, medical and hospitality sectors.

So what’s next? “To meet demand, and for improved coverage, the opening of two additional locations is in process,” said Managing Partner Gregg Hassler. “AtWork is coming to the Cities of Riverside and San Diego, and we look forward to working with applicants and employers in those cities very soon.”
