BANKW Staffing Member Spotlight

This month we are shining the spotlight on BANKW Staffing, our May member Social sponsor.

Job seekers don’t just want to be “placed”. Employers don’t just want to “fill a vacancy.” They want to be helped. Whether that means taking the next step in their career, growing their business, finding their passion, or bringing in someone with vision.

In 2005, three of the founding BANKW Staffing partners decided to take a risk. Although they were already in the business of connecting people, they realized that it was time to make staffing more human.

So after a lot of talk (and a couple of beers), they got up the nerve to start their own firm.

And KBW was born.

“What we really wanted to do was hire people that not only were good for the business, but people we actually enjoy spending time with.”

Today, there are five partners and four staffing firms that make up the BANKW family. And each one focuses on helping people achieve their business and career goals.

All BANKW Staffing companies are powered by the same philosophy: We find the right fit for all our clients, candidate or employer.
