Express Employment Professionals

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Express Employment Professionals with location in Poplar Bluff, Dexter, Sikeston and Cape Girardeau focuses on helping people find jobs and businesses find the workers they need.

"We are focusing on the top challenges businesses are facing in the new economic world we live in today," Tyler Lance said. "By providing education on employment trends impacting productivity and profitability, our clients and prospects are able to make more informed business decisions. The top five threats facing business today are relevant to all businesses. Leaders face the challenges of keeping their companies innovative, ahead of their competition, finding and keeping the right talent, providing effective leadership, and avoiding regulatory nightmares. We have developed an education-based program that helps our clients address these problems."

For more than 25 years, the mission of Express Employment Professionals has been to help people find jobs and help businesses find the people and human resource services they need. "We accomplish this mission through a network of more than 560 offices in the United States, Canada, and South Africa," Lance said. "Each Express office is locally owned and backed by the expertise and support of an international headquarters. Simply put, Express is large enough to meet employment needs, yet small enough to care."

Lance's mother, Karen Lance, opened the Poplar Bluff office in 2001. Last year, she went on to help Heath and Kourtney Hartwell establish the Cape Girardeau office. "The Cape office opened in January and has been very well received by the business community there," Lance said. "Heath and Kourtney are my brother-in-law and sister. While Kourtney is helping Heath get the office operational, her vocation is that of a trauma nurse and she will be leaving us soon to attend nurse anesthetist school."

Lance said, "We will continue to focus on our vision to help as many people as possible find good jobs by helping as many clients as possible find good people. Our purpose is to help people succeed."
