VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Reliance Staffing & Recruiting, locally owned and operated since 1982, has expanded outside of Hampton Roads and now has a branch in Virginia’s Capitol of Richmond.
Reliance is Virginia’s largest independent staffing firm, placing more than 900 associates per week and providing more than $20 million of economic activity in the commonwealth.
“It’s just natural for us to expand into the Richmond market,” said CEO Tom Sarach, Jr. “Being a great place to live also means being a great place to work. We’re excited about moving to Richmond to support a thriving economy with our employment service, which helps the tax base, adds more money for city improvements, and helps the area attract and retain talent.”
“We are very proud to be a family business and couldn’t be more thrilled to have Kate – the third generation of the family – lead our expansion into Richmond,” said Lynn Connor, VP of Sales and Marketing. “Our whole goal is to help people reach their full potential. I know Kate’s passion and enthusiasm for helping people will serve her well in this role.”
Moore, a graduate of James Madison University in Hospitality and Business Management, is also a Certified Staffing Professional from the American Staffing Association.
“I know what a great area Richmond is and am proud to call it home,” said Moore. “I also know that there are many people here with a desire to work, to provide for their family, and to serve a greater good. I am excited about this new chapter for Reliance and for us to be now part of the Richmond business community.”
Reliance is nationally recognized for its commitment to service and excellence. It has been awarded Inavero’s Best of Staffing ™ for both Client and Talent each year since 2012, and this year received the Safety Standard of Excellence mark from the American Staffing Association and National Safety Council, and the TSIL Risk Control Award.
The Richmond office is located in the North Chesterfield area of Richmond and will serve the surrounding communities.
