As I entered Express Employment Professionals in Torrance, I was greeted by owner Larry Halvorsen. Halvorsen, a very involved chamber member, pointed out various posters on the wall and the meaning behind each of them and provided a tour of the spacious office.
Express Employment Professionals is a leading staffing provider in the U.S., Canada and South Africa. Founded in 1983, Express today employs 400,000 people across nearly 700 franchise locations worldwide. Halvorsen explained that the long-term goal is at the heart of the company’s vision, to help as many people as possible find good jobs by helping as many clients as possible find good people.
Halvorsen is focusing on the local market and assisting companies in the South Bay with their needs. “Express Employment Professionals’ niche is an employer of 1 – 200 individuals, assisting the small and medium size businesses who don’t have time to do all of the aspects of hiring. We have qualified individuals in the fields of light industrial, clerical support, IT, marketing and several others,” stated Halvorsen.
Express Employment Professionals works with job seekers to help them find the right job for their skills and experience. A variety of full-time, part-time, and temporary positions are available. And, as one of the leading staffing agencies in North America, Express provides employment services and workforce solutions to employers throughout our community.
The Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce values Express Employment Professionals’ membership and appreciates Halvorsen’s commitment to the business community.
