It is hard to believe, but on June 1 KB Staffing is celebrating our Third Anniversary! It feels like just yesterday that we opened our doors in downtown Winter Haven. With a sturdy foundation of experience in warehouse and construction staffing to build upon, we started out running on day one and have expanded to meet the growing needs of employers from Winter Haven to Bartow and Lakeland to Plant City.
The past year has been remarkable. We have made a lot of changes to support the phenomenal growth we are experiencing, both now and with an eye on the future. In September, we moved to a new location on Sixth Street, S.E. in Winter Haven. The larger building gives us the space we need, allowing us to expand our staff and increase the services we offer.
In addition to internal expansion, we have added several large companies to our client base, expanding into Plant City in the process. KB Staffing now manages hundreds of employees simultaneously working in companies throughout the Lakeland – Winter Haven MSA. This year we also commissioned a custom software project to efficiently handle timekeeping and payroll. Our new cloud-based program has increased administrative efficiency, a savings that we pass on to our customers.
In the upcoming year, KB Staffing’s work will continue growing with the Lakeland – Winter Haven employment market, including an expansion into the medical staffing field. The area’s fine medical facilities are an ideal fit for KB Staffing’s scope of services, and as our motto says, KB Staffing delivers!
At KB Staffing, we understand that we are not truly successful unless we are giving back to our community. We were pleased to participate in the Colon Cancer Alliance walk, “the Undy 500.” Photos of the event are on our Facebook page. We had a great time and helped raise funds to fight cancer. This year, we will also be working with the Polk Project, an organization dedicated to helping hungry and homeless children in Polk County.
Hand in hand with hard work is a strong code of ethics, which we know crucial to our success. As such, KB Staffing is a member of several professional organizations. This year we added the American Staffing Association and Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. to our affiliations.
With a reputation built on experience, a keen understanding of the labor market and what it takes to succeed, KB Staffing is celebrating. Business is excellent … and getting better!
