Job.com Acquires Established Staffing Firms Fortus Healthcare Resources and Endevis, Adding $50 Million of Annual Revenue

Job.com | August 20, 2021

Job.com, the data-driven, AI-powered recruitment platform, announced today the acquisition of two established staffing firms: Fortus Healthcare Resources, which specializes in the direct and travel placement of healthcare professionals with an emphasis on nursing, and Endevis, which offers permanent recruitment services, contract staffing, and recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) to clients in the automotive, commercial, and manufacturing sectors, among others. Together, the two businesses add more than $50 million of annual revenue to Job.com. The acquisitions are part of Job.com's strategic plan to develop its revenue and reach by acquiring businesses that are already successful and profitable but have the potential to grow quickly and more intelligently through the application of Job.com's proprietary technology.

"Fortus and Endevis are both strong businesses, and we are thrilled that they have joined our portfolio," said Job.com Co-Founder and CEO Paul Sloyan. "They both complement HireVergence, the cybersecurity specialist staffing firm we acquired in 2020, and give us penetration into the healthcare, automotive, and other sectors. In the first 12 months of owning HireVergence, we have worked closely with its management team to grow the business significantly and have increased the number of contractors billing by nearly 100%, and our goal is to do the same with these two new acquisitions."

"We remain very acquisitive and will continue to add more great staffing and HR tech firms to our portfolio in the coming months," added Sloyan.

Through its continual focus on developing new technologies, Job.com has been disrupting the hiring industry by streamlining how talented workers find their next position as well as how companies attract, hire, and retain talent. Through the application of the latest hiring technology, Job.com helps recruiters, candidates and employers have a more seamless job search experience - where quality candidates more quickly find the right position, employers are enabled to make better and more efficient hiring decisions, and recruiters have the necessary technology to keep the process people-focused.

Founded in 1993 and based in Utica, NY, Fortus serves hospitals and other care facilities throughout the United States, providing nurses and other medical professionals on a contract and permanent basis.

As a company that values and has remained focused on providing the best care possible, Fortus' partnership with Job.com is the perfect way to find and match more qualified nurses more efficiently while improving the experience for all involved and bringing top-quality care to its clients' patients.

"Our team has worked tirelessly to grow Fortus to where it is today, a market leader in the provision of traveling nurses, with a specialty in the ever-growing dialysis sector," said Fortus Founder and CEO Mike Maurizio. "We have done very well, but have always been conscious that there was an even bigger opportunity if we could find a way of accessing more talent to fill the vast number of job roles our clients have open at any time. We believe we have found the perfect partner in Job.com. They have the technology we need to access more suitably qualified candidates quickly and to improve communication between our clients, employees, and nurses. Fortus has grown significantly over the past three years, and I fully expect this growth to accelerate exponentially now that we are part of Job.com."

"I have always believed that the best way to predict the future was to invent it," said Fortus President and Chief Revenue Officer Jeremy Enck. "The alliance of Job.com and Fortus is going to make an incredible impact on the staffing industry and change a lot of people's futures."

Founded in 2000, with offices in Toledo, Maumee, Cleveland, Nashville, and New Jersey, Endevis operates three divisions providing clients a full range of hiring solutions, including contract staffing, direct placement, and recruitment process outsourcing, with clients spanning a range of major industries.

Endevis' partnership with Job.com will allow it to utilize technology to better meet more of its clients' needs while also ramping up efficiency.

"The only thing that has ever held us back is the time and the manpower to fill more of the opportunities our great client base offers us," said Endevis Co-Founder and Chief Administrative Officer Mick Fecko. "We recognized that the best way to continue to grow our business was by applying state-of-the-art recruitment technology to add pace and enhance the recruitment process. Joining Job.com delivers to us both the tech we need now and an exciting plan for further proprietary technology, plus greater scale and market penetration. Speaking on behalf of my Endevis co-founders, Ron Walters and Mark Melfi, we are delighted to now be part of Job.com, we see a great future for our business and the wider group."

McLean & Company Launches HR Strategy for Industry to Build Leadership Capabilities for Today's Environment

McLean & Company | March 09, 2022

McLean & Company, the trusted partner of HR and leadership professionals globally, has published new research and a strategy to help organizations build and develop personal and organizational leadership capabilities. The integrated leadership capabilities outlined in the recently released research will reduce failure and harness influence to thrive in today's volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world. To be successful in the current market, leaders need to adopt new frameworks for leadership and decision making. Those that continue to lead in traditional ways will struggle to compete. The 2021 McLean & Company Employee Engagement Survey, with 157 organization contributors, indicates that only 47% of executive leadership teams inspire their employees. Poor leadership is the most significant cause of employee disengagement, and it's clear that a new approach to leadership is required. This new research outlines the root causes of why leaders are failing, which include: Poor decision making – Leaders must make more decisions in a shorter period of time, yet the way leaders make decisions has not evolved. Insufficient adaptability – Leaders must model resilience and course-correct appropriately in today's continuously changing environment. However, transformations and leaders are regularly failing, indicating a lack of appropriate response. Lack of followership – Leaders must engage their followers to stand behind decisions and work together to reach a common goal. Unfortunately, today's approach to leadership no longer resonates with most employees. Mclean & Company's integrated leadership strategy will help leaders understand the core complications in their organization. The framework focuses on three different primary functions of an organization: operating environment complications, technological complications, and behavioral complications. The firm's integrated leadership paradigm will set leaders up for success through five elements: Be Planful Learn to Learn Distribute Leadership Activate Networks Incorporate Influence Media professionals are encouraged to register for McLean & Company's Media Insiders program for more research and insights.

Flexible Law Degree Offerings Are Attracting Working Professionals

Faulkner Law | January 05, 2022

A growing number of non-traditional students seeking a law degree are discovering new opportunities to pursue a Juris Doctor (J.D.) through the expansion of distance learning and flexible scheduling options approved by the American Bar Association (ABA). One such offering is the Executive J.D. Schedule at Faulkner University Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in Montgomery, Alabama. Faulkner Law's Executive J.D. Schedule provides part-time students with the same curriculum and services as students in their traditional, Full-time J.D. Schedule, only delivered through blended online and in-person courses spread out over a four-year time commitment. In its second year, the Executive J.D. Schedule has welcomed primarily non-traditional, working professionals with an average incoming age of 35. "For over 70 years, Jones School of Law was a part-time, evening J.D. program, This new age of distance learning and online technologies allows us to refocus on this same commitment to offering a legal degree to those students who require the flexibility of schedule to accommodate their professional and personal lives." - Faulkner Law Dean Charles B. Campbell. The blended learning delivery of the Executive J.D. Schedule is ideally suited to students within a three-to-four hour driving radius from the campus that is conducive to fulfilling the in-person learning obligations scheduled two weekends a month excluding the summer. The part-time schedule appeals to working professionals who may have previously thought about becoming a lawyer but could not afford to forgo employment to do so, including current student Preston Roberts, a government relations professional residing in Montgomery. Without this opportunity, Roberts states he would not have been able to pursue his law degree without leaving his career and interrupting his family life. While he acknowledges that law school requires a substantial commitment, he also believes the rewarding outcome will validate the pursuit. The Executive J.D. Schedule offers parity with Faulkner Law's Full-time J.D. Schedule, including integrating bar exam preparedness, maintaining compliance with ABA Standards, providing student services and academic support, and following established admissions standards.
