IRELAND’S STATESIDE SOLUTIONS EXPANDS U.S. BUSINESS BY TEAMING UP WITH NEW YORK-BASED ATRIUM STAFFING
Partnership to develop a division specializing in healthcare staffing to service the Tri-state area
WASHINGTON, DC, NEW YORK, NY and GALWAY, Ireland, March 2010—Stateside Solutions, an Ireland-based full-service recruitment firm that provides permanent and temporary staff placements for small and medium-size employers, as well as multinational companies operating in the US, today announced a partnership with Atrium Staffing, a New York-based talent solutions firm servicing client locations around the US. The companies will join forces to develop a division specializing in healthcare staffing. The partnership will initially concentrate on providing staffing solutions to medical offices, hospitals and surgical centers in the Tri-state region of the northeastern US. The agreement has an estimated value of US$1.5 million.
The partnership was announced during an Enterprise Ireland-supported Trade and Investment Mission to the US led by Ireland’s Prime Minister, Brian Cowen. Enterprise Ireland is the Irish state agency responsible for the development and promotion of the indigenous Irish business sector.
Stateside began its US business to address the challenges faced by foreign-owned companies seeking to employ top-quality talent in the US. It has strategically partnered with U.S. staffing agency, Atrium Staffing, to offer its clients an expanded range of services, including ancillary staffing solutions such as payroll services, benefits and independent contractor vetting. These services minimize the employment risks to clients and cover many of the administrative functions involved in hiring, allowing clients to focus on their core business.
“We’re very pleased to be partnering with Atrium Staffing, a company with an excellent reputation in recruitment,” said Mary Rodgers, CEO of Stateside Solutions. “By combining our experience and relationships in the healthcare field with Atrium’s established presence in the Northeastern US we can greatly expand our service offerings, extend our presence and accelerate our growth in the US over the next six months.”
Rebecca Cenni, CEO of Atrium Staffing commented, “Our partnership with Stateside represents a strategic move for Atrium to solidify our already strong foothold in the healthcare market and pave the way for growth into new areas. Stateside brings expertise and processes that augment the service offerings Atrium clients have come to rely on. We’re delighted to be collaborating with this expert team.”
