WHAT'S YOUR STORY?

CHRIS YARROW

CO-FOUNDER & MANAGING PARTNER

Career-wise, I started in the staffing industry in November of 2000, when I left retail and joined the largest IT staffing firm in the country as a technical recruiter. I had 13 very successful years in the industry and worked in Greensboro NC, Silicon Valley CA, Raleigh NC, Virginia Beach VA, and Greenville SC. Brooks and I started The Hiring Group in April of 2014 in Atlanta, GA. We had a vision for a technical staffing firm that could truly take care of its contract employees, and provide a client experience that was vastly different than the ultra-aggressive sales tactics that had proliferated in our industry. Over three and a half years we have honed that message on both sides, offering the best benefits in the industry to our contract staff, and built a successful multimillion dollar, retention-focused staffing firm from the ground up without making a single cold call.

  • Being in the technical staffing industry for nearly 20 years, we knew there was a better way to do business, a better way to treat contractors and a better way to help our clients achieve their goals.

Our path to success was far from a walk in the park. My business partner and I had a non-compete which prevented us to start our business near our Simpsonville, SC homes. Our hands were forced to pick a location where we could work within the constraints of our previous employment agreements. This meant working in the Atlanta area away from our families for over 18 months.

It was a tough call to make but we felt the rewards outweighed the initial hardships. So off we went to conquer Atlanta (and the world). The office furniture was purchased for $200 from my church back in Upstate South Carolina. We built everything from the ground up using a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet to manage our progress on all our projects. We were rookies but we were thorough with our research and follow through. In our initial year, we put a very small revenue number on the books but it was at least a number. Today we are a multi-million-dollar business competing with billion-dollar staffing companies. We are not a rag to riches story yet, but all I can say is we have the secret sauce and message resonating with our customers and they are slowly getting how and why we are different than all other staffing companies.
