“Change is the law of life, and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.” – John F. Kennedy
You may recall Celebrity Staff’s parent company, C&A Industries, was purchased by Medical Solutions last October, which combined two of the nation’s largest healthcare staffing companies. You are probably thinking, “So what does that have to do with Celebrity Staff since they place administrative, management, and legal professionals?” It brought change and with change there is opportunity!
In the short time since our acquisition, Celebrity Staff has expanded business services from four to eleven states with more on the horizon! Wow! We’ve been able to expand through our current customer locations across the country without opening local offices. Our customers enjoy the fact that the Account Manager who takes care of them in Kansas City can also provide services for their Florida location.
CELEBRITY STAFF NEBRASKA OFFICES NOW SERVE THE U.S.!
Wait, without local offices? That’s right! Video meeting technology like Zoom, WebEx, Microsoft Teams, or even FaceTime or Duo has opened the door to meet candidates and clients face to face without the need to be in the same room. Then came the COVID-19 pandemic, and now we are all working from home. More change. There is no better time than now to examine the need for existing office spaces. Our conclusion? We can close the Des Moines and Kansas City physical office locations and still provide services to our customers, no matter where they or we are located. Celebrity Staff’s offices located in Lincoln and Omaha, Nebraska now serve the entire U.S.!
CELEBRITY STAFF PRIMARY PHONE NUMBER IS NOW 402.938.2000
This is also a great time to examine our phone numbers and make the move to using our corporate location phone number as our primary contact number. If our Nebraska customers are calling us this way, then so can our Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, California, Colorado, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Florida, Texas, and Washington clients. Contact us at 402.938.2000 to reach a member of our team who is happy to serve you, no matter where you are located! Please update your contact information and we look forward to serving you as usual.
I’m sure this is just the start for new changes coming to our organization under our new ownership. As Celebrity Staff continues our expansion and the market shifts and evolves, there will be new opportunities to change how we do business so we may continue to service our clients in the years to come.
“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new” –Socrates
I also want to take this opportunity to express sincere thanks to all of those who choose to do business with us. We remain committed to providing you with world-class recruiting and staffing services in the years to come.
