I am very pleased to announce that The CERES Group is turning four today!
It literally seems like yesterday when we opened the doors of the office for the first time. I want to personally take this opportunity to thank the extended CERES Group family of coworkers, clients, and consultants who have played a role in our growth and success. We’ve cherished having you on board as part of our growing community and we look forward to your continued support.
When It All Started
When we officially launched on this day four years ago, we were just another face in the crowd. We were fortunate to get up and running quickly because of the great relationships I have been blessed to develop over the past 20 years. I have worked and have known many of you for a good portion of that time. Our initial business relationships have grown into true personal friendships.
Right from the beginning, our continuous aim has been to be the most trusted staffing agency in Boston by acting with integrity and building relationships based on the credibility of our practice and the quality of our candidates and clients. We are deeply invested in assuring the success of both and take that responsibility very seriously.
CERES Managed Services continues to assist HR leaders in designing and implementing full service contingent and contract talent programs that create real strategic advantages. As talent advisors, we enjoy inventing and implementing MSP’s and RPO’s that are smart, data driven, and provide a return on investment for our small to mid-market firms. These business relationships are rich with innovative answers where we, as staffing agents, stretch our creative muscles and conceptualize unique solutions. It is and continues to be fun.
The Journey and Our Future
Though we started off as a small firm I am pleased to share we have doubled in revenue year over year for four years and hope to do it again this year. You will be seeing some national recognition we have garnered soon. This will be an exciting year on many fronts. We will be moving into a larger location in the next few months as we have outgrown our current space.
While construction of our physical space is taking place, we are also finalizing the development and will soon launch a new website to support our clients and candidates better. One component of the new site allows you to select relevant content based on the industries and job functions that are important to you. Hopefully, you are already receiving the weekly information we have been publishing for Program and Project Managers. We will be highlighting some of our clients and candidates success stories on the site as well. Formal announcements will be coming soon so be sure to follow our social media pages and blog for the most up to date information.
I am personally proud to announce the addition of the McNeil Project! We have developed an eight-week course that trains military veterans looking for meaningful and rewarding employment as they transition out of their military careers. A team of industry leaders teach the skills needed to become a recruiting professional and assist all graduates with job placement. As a veteran’s service to our country ends we are excited to offer a path that leads into meaningful and rewarding employment.
We are also partnering with Aliter Investment Services helping investment managers and service providers with consulting customized to meet their business needs and objectives. Efficient advising that includes business strategy and transformation efforts, complex technology initiatives, regulatory change, and large market changing events such as outsourcing or acquisitions delivered by industry leaders with proven records of success.
A Moment of Gratitude
Once again, I would like to thank you all for your friendship and continued business. I am committed to the continuous improvement and growth of all facets of The CERES Group. I am always interested in your valuable feedback on how we can improve and any other suggestions that you might have. Please email DBelanger@theceresgroup.com or share your opinion by leaving a comment. I look forward to continuing to grow IT together; we only get better from here.
