In-demand Skills Available On-demand to Develop Future Craft Workers
SCRANTON, PA and KALAMAZOO, MI— Penn Foster, a leading provider of skills development training and credentials for today’s frontline workforce, and Trillium Staffing, one of the nation’s largest construction staffing firms, today announced a partnership between the two companies to make no-cost, construction-focused courses available to Trillium employees to empower them to gain skills and increase employability.
René Poch founder and CEO of Trillium Staffing, recently announced that Trillium had been recognized as the 59th Largest Staffing Firm in the United States by Staffing Industry Analysts.
“Many years ago when we started the company we felt that there were a couple of things that we needed to do particularly well. The first was to give great customer service, that means finding the absolute best candidate for the jobs that we have available. Today, we use a partnership approach between our candidates and our clients to find the best possible career matches,” states René Poch, CEO.
Trillium Staffing was founded in Battle Creek, Michigan in 1984, by founder and CEO René Poch. Since that time, René Poch has steadily expanded the employment service to include seven companies with over 95 locations across the nation. Today, Trillium is proud to be recognized as a national leader in recruitment and staffing, providing service to thousands of clients and employees in various capacities across the country.
The organization’s commitment to excellence has been the driving force behind its growth and expansion. Trillium is proud to employ a full time risk management team to help clients identify areas of liability and provide an unsurpassed safety program for their employees.
With a recruitment team of approximately 400 individuals nationwide, Trillium excels at attracting, identifying, and recruiting some of the best candidates in each line of work. Trillium uses the latest technology and sourcing tools available to locate and identify talent for some of the industry’s hardest to fill positions. Trillium employees have access to careers with some of the nation’s leading employers along with competitive pay and benefit options.
“We have the same commitments to each and every one of our employees as we do our clients. We have high expectations and our requirements are stringent. Once you become an employee of Trillium, we’ll do everything in our power to help you succeed and meet your career goals. When our employees are successful, we’ve done our job,” stated René Poch, CEO.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts the construction industry will face a shortage of 1.6 million workers by 2022. So how did an industry that let go more than 2 million workers during the recession, well more than any other industry, end up in the talent struggle?
Currently, there is only one tradesman entering the workforce for every 5 that retire. With 73% of construction firms planning to expand their headcount throughout 2017, this leaves the industry in a continued shortage for qualified talent. The Associated General Contractors of America reported that construction firms added employees over the past year at nearly double the rate of the overall economy. In June alone, the industry added 16,000 jobs across the country.
In the United States nearly 15 million people are employed each year by staffing firms. While previously seen as a source of entry level jobs, the staffing industry has transformed itself into the gateway to confidential job searches, permanent careers and access to the nation’s top hiring managers.
Here’s what staffing employees recently shared with the American Staffing Association:
- 9 out of 10 staffing employees said staffing work made them more employable
- 35% were offered a permanent job by a client where they were placed, 66% of those offered accepted the offers of permanent employment
- The average staffing employee makes $17/hr while some make more than $100/hr
- 1 out of 5 staffing employees say scheduling flexibility is a key reason for choosing temporary or contract work
- 90% of staffing employees report that they are satisfied with their staffing company
