Chicago, IL., (June 4, 2012)—North Bridge Staffing Group announced today it has made a strategic acquisition of Beyond Credentials, Inc, a Chicago-based firm that creates cutting-edge job candidate screening software and video technology, enabling companies to find the optimal fit for every position.
North Bridge, currently celebrating 10 years in the staffing business, has grown organically to date, but has been looking for a technology partner able to add marked value for its client base, which includes many of the most prominent firms in the Chicagoland business community.
Patrick Dugan, president of North Bridge Staffing, had made an angel investment in Beyond Credentials, and quickly recognized its potential value to his clients, leading to the acquisition.
“The staffing space is ripe for innovation and I have been increasingly impressed with what Beyond Credentials has developed over the past two years,” says Dugan. “Our clients deserve more than just a resume, and we’re excited because we see this merger as a truly unique opportunity to enhance our team’s ability to deliver even more top-notch candidates to them.”
Beyond Credentials was founded in 2009, and its solutions caught on quickly with Human Resource departments, who typically find resumes to be lacking. HR professionals were enthusiastic about leveraging technology to learn more about each candidate in a fraction of the time it takes to even coordinate an interview. Beyond Credentials has been recognized for innovation in Human Resource technology by Crain’s, NBC News, Tech Cocktail, and Time Magazine, among others.
North Bridge Staffing Group was founded 10 years ago on the premise of attracting the best possible internal talent, giving NBSG the ability to attract and retain the best external talent to better serve client needs. Its flagship office is located in the historic Wrigley Building on Chicago’s ‘Magnificent Mile,’ and NBSG enjoys membership in the Greater North Michigan Avenue Association (GNMAA), the Illinois Search and Staffing Association (ISSA) and the American Staffing Association (ASA).
