Kristen Harris, co-owner and founder of Portfolio Creative, was recently quoted in Columbus Business First. The article, ‘Battered and bruised, staffing firms positioning for a rebound’, appeared in the October 30th issue.
Staff writer Jan O’Daniel explains how staffing firms felt the effects of the economic downturn but are now seeing some light. Kristen was quoted as saying, ‘The general wisdom is that during a recession the staffing business does well, but the reality is, people don’t need extra help or any help for that matter. What we find, though, is that there’s some correlation that when the gross national product reaches a certain number, the staffing industry picks up.’ Kristen also acknowledges Portfolio’s plans for growth as the staffing trend continues to gradually increase. ‘We’re looking at new services that are still in the creative niche, as well as how to work with groups of talent we don’t work with right now’.
