Express Employment Professionals lauded for community involvement, customer service
A true pillar in the community, Express Employment Professionals was named Greater Lafayette Commerce’s Small Business of the Month for September 2023.
The monthly honor is awarded to a Greater Lafayette small business with 50 or less employees. The chosen business excels in more areas than one – excellent customer services and community involvement, to mention a few.
Located at 2200 Scott Street in Lafayette, Express Employment Professionals of Lafayette is a leading staffing provider helping job seekers find work with various local businesses. The agency works with them to help them find the right job for their skills and experience.
And because it’s locally owned – by Chuck and Kathy Fish, who live and work in Greater Lafayette, they have a vested interest in the community’s success.
In 2001, the Fish’s were looking for an opportunity that would take care of them and their family. They wanted to represent a business that helped people. Their company needed to be run in an open and honest way and needed to operate with integrity. After a six-month search, they found it, in an Express Employment Professionals franchise.
A global company, Express Employment employs more than 500,000 people across more than 850 franchise locations in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. As such, the Fish’s office has access to international resources.
