When Amy Shockley founded Focus of Georgia in 1994, the vision was clear and simple: to provide opportunities for individuals to thrive in environments that allow them to grow personally and professionally. In the years that followed, we remained steadfast in pursuing the same goal, as evidenced by our positive client testimonials.
With the ever-changing staffing market and recruitment shift toward more candidate-centric efforts, we strive to ensure the quality of our service stays the same as we expand our horizons. While our dedication to providing the best career opportunities for professionals remains, we wish to champion individuals’ stories better, forming more impactful connections with and between our candidates and clients.
So, from this year forward, our Focus is not just on Georgia. It’s on the people we serve nationwide: clients, employees, and candidates. And to meet the demand of our national clients, Focus of Georgia is relaunching as Focus People. Our goal is to provide exceptional people to organizations and flexible career solutions for talented professionals across the country.
Consistency is a standard here at Focus People. Our future and current clients can expect the excellence we have provided in the past decades, but with greater emphasis on individual success and valued relationships.
As Focus People, our Focus is you – wherever you are, whoever you are.
The 2023 rebrand: celebrating the success of our people.
As a top-notch staffing agency, we take pride in the success we have garnered in the past 29 years. Being in the top 7 percent of staffing firms across the United States, we can say that we have always stayed true to our mission:
- To provide a culture and atmosphere that inspires our staff to enjoy and excel in their roles.
- To respect, enlighten, and encourage our colleagues, customers, and employees with every opportunity.
Moving forward, Focus People will contribute to this mission further by creating more meaningful opportunities through powerful relationships. Especially in this candidate-centric market, the goal of recruitment is not simply filling vacancies within a workforce but understanding each potential hire’s capabilities and preferences and which position will be the best fit.
In other words, we at Focus People choose to get to know each candidate that comes our way and lead them toward the best career opportunity. We will focus on the specific qualities and talents essential to successful partnerships with our customers and uncover and create opportunities.
For employers, we are your path to great talent.
