When Rona Borre started Instant Alliance, her new staffing company in 2001, is was with little fanfare because her initial efforts came from the spare bedroom of her Chicago condo. Today, Instant Alliance is one of the fastest-growing staffing companies in the nation, and it bills out millions in fees each year.
Borre knew something that many of her competitors failed to utilize. She and her well-trained account executives spend a great deal of time investigating and getting to know the leadership of the hiring companies with whom they work. By the time they are finished, Borre and her troops know everything about them. This allows a tight fit for the new hire that will be coming in, so he or she always fits in.
Specializing in financial and technological professionals, Instant Alliance has hit upon a niche that is very popular because these are the very people that a growing company needs to make it to the next level, check this on chicagobusiness.com. Good financing strategies are needed in a growth spurt as well as the technology to run and back it up.
Only one percent of all of the hires that Borre selects for her clients ever leaves, which is remarkable in the staffing field.
Borre is well known in the Chicago financial circles and is in demand as a speaker quite frequently. She is also involved in the Young Presidents’ Organization, The Economic Club of Chicago, and the Chicago Network. Related article on conferences.shrm.org.
