Bloomington-based employment agency plans to add 307 jobs

March 28, 2012

Bloomington-based Employment Plus Inc., a staffing, recruiting and human resources provider, announced on Wednesday morning that it plans to add 307 Indiana jobs by 2015 as part of a $1.2 million expansion.

The company, which has more than 100 locations in 17 states, said the investment will go toward leasing and equipping a 21,400-square-foot facility as its new headquarters in Bloomington. The company moved to the location at 1801 S. Liberty Drive on March 2.

As part of the expansion, Employment Plus also has added branches in Elkhart, Fort Wayne, Goshen and Lafayette.

The company, which has roughly 170 employees at its 20 Indiana locations, already has begun hiring for positions at its headquarters and new branches.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. said it will provide up to $1.35 million in performance-based tax credits and up to $200,000 in training grants based on the company’s job-creation plans. The city of Bloomington will consider additional property tax abatements.

Founded in 1993, Employment Plus offers staffing services to more than 1,000 clients in the light manufacturing, transportation, construction, health care and call center industries.
