The Spearhead Group

As a local staffing agency in Houston, Texas they chose to deal with the pandemic by helping with the nationwide staffing shortage. For the past 40 years, The Spearhead Group has helped locals in Houston and other cities find positions nationwide. Companies approach TSG often with large volume contracts to fulfill some of their hardest staffing positions. The very detailed executive search hiring process utilized allows corporations to use TSG staffing as a means to fulfill their needs and hire top talent internationally.
By providing local staffing help to companies and government entities, The Spearhead Group helped to combat one of the biggest issues facing the nation. Particularly, we have assisted with pandemic efforts by staffing in executive placement, engineering and IT, finance, and many other placement industries. TSG has multiple new projects coming soon, many of these projects include staffing difficult positions where employers have been struggling to find candidates. Many people in Houston, Texas are searching for jobs and have been helped by this firm.

TSG seeks to work with those businesses who are suffering from employment loss, and help them to replace their temporary or permanent employees who have been affected by the pandemic.

The Value Of Staffing During the Pandemic
Remote work and virtual meetings are likely to continue and many employees are preparing for this new way of life. This large shift in employees relocating because of the new remote opportunities, has caused a large change in the geography of where people work, many people will now be able to work at a company that may be located in a large city like Houston, Los Angeles or New York even if they are in a small city far away. This new pandemic remote working situation also provides employers that are looking to use staffing companies with a wide range of candidates nationwide.
Many people feel that they have been working hard but have not been given opportunities to advance professionally in their current company. By matching these candidates with employers who have suffered a huge loss during the pandemic TSG is helping the economy bounce back from the shift a few years ago. Company culture and work-life balance is a large priority for employees now in 2022, recruiters from the Spearhead Group makes sure to examine the company culture to match the candidate with the right location. This helps to ensure that the candidate chooses to stay with the company for a longer period. Now, many employees are expected to exchange a healthy balanced life in order to meet company’s needs.

Candidates often choose to switch jobs to join companies whose values are aligned with their own and allow for a better balanced life which leads to overall quality of mental health.
