Built to Last!
PACE’s story began in 1975 when we became one of the first placement agencies in our local market to require the employer, not the job seeker, to pay the fee for our services. Our founders, two young female entrepreneurs, had a vision for how an employer paid recruiting and placement service could “make a difference”- and we did!
We started doing temporary staffing in 1985 and once again lead the way by offering the new (at the time) “temp to hire” way of staffing. Our clients were the big tech giants – Microsoft, Adobe, and T-Mobile. These high growth companies needed a fast, efficient way to put the right employees to work without the hassle of hiring direct. The temp to hire staffing model was the perfect solution.
In 2003 PACE initiated another innovation – a network of local and national staffing agencies who worked together to provide employers with something they needed – a one stop way to access a wide range of niched staffing providers. Our network quickly became the service platform du jour for other “bigs” like Intermec Technologies (now Honeywell), Group Health (now Kaiser Permanente), Children’s Hospital and more.
The mission we set for ourselves in 1975 – “to make a difference” – continues to inspire the PACE team today. When we help our client’s achieve a business goal or solve a staffing challenge, we know we’ve made a difference!
Today PACE is busy transitioning into a new generation of “make a difference” leadership. We’re looking forward to continuing our story!
"PACE has been a great business partner and has become an integral part of our staffing strategy! The team does a really good job of sending us applicants that meet our needs and fit our culture. Everyone at PACE has been a pleasure to work with.”
