Fueling growth with transformational technology.

Credera led a transformational post-merger integration of EmployBridge and Select Staffing resulting in a $300 million revenue increase.

At a Glance

EmployBridge is a national leader in staffing and workforce solutions processing 2 million job applicants per year. EmployBridge engaged Credera to lead a transformational, post-merger integration between EmployBridge and Select Staffing. This integration needed to combine 100,000 associates, 20,000 clients, and 475 branches onto a single technology platform. As a result of the migration to a new technology platform, EmployBridge realized a $300 million increase in revenue, automated the job application process, saw a 2,000% increase in candidate applications, and reduced the “application-to-work” timeline from eight days to three hours. All of this was completed six months ahead of the projected schedule, saving the company $600,000.
