Advanced Resources: Making A Difference

Here at Advanced Resources we strive to make a difference. In fact, it’s our mission statement: “By placing our team, clients, and associates first, every day we make a difference.” We’ve placed thousands of people into temporary and direct-hire jobs, and we aim to help those we haven’t placed by offering them valuable job search insight and resources.  We want to help everyone achieve success.

Not only do we strive to make a difference for our candidates, we strive to make a difference for our clients as well. Whether it’s through talent recruitment and retention or flexible workforce outsourcing and management, we provide workforce business solutions to help our clients achieve business outcomes.

A great example of our client relationships is the one we have with our valued client, the Chicago Public Library Foundation. We started working with CPLF in 2010 by offering solutions to managing its hundreds of flexible employees who work throughout the Chicago library system.

When an organization uses a great deal of flexible workers, they can face a great administration burden: background screening, file compliance, payroll onboarding and offboarding, and unemployment management. Advanced Resources was able to customize our payPro solution for CPLF to provide them with a program that saves them both substantial time and money – our fully automated solution has simplified their flexible workforce processes and has helped them achieve considerable cost savings. 

We believe in the Chicago Public Library Foundation’s mission: “Ensure that all Chicagoans have the freedom to read, to learn and to discover at the Chicago Public Library.” That’s why we donated $50,000 this week to the Chicago Public Library Foundation. We believe it is our responsibility to give back to the community, and as a Chicago-based company, we do just that. We love Chicago! We want to support our community and help those with a desire to grow through reading and improving their computer skills.
