Memorial Day Celebration – City of Marion

Priority Group is collaborating with the City of Marion on a Memorial Day event at Ray Fosse Park on Monday, May 29th.

The partnership, spearheaded by Priority Group’s CEO, Gail Lannom, happens every year. The free event is family friendly with goofy golf, swimming, antique cars and much more throughout the day.

The only cost to attendees is food from event vendors and the chicken dinner, which requires a ticket that must be purchased in advance of the event day.

Tickets for the chicken dinner are being sold at Priority Staffing Group’s Marion office now until Friday, May 26th between 8:30am and 4:30pm.

Illinois Still No Budget – Tennessee Is Doing Fine

, ,

As we deal with the April showers, we are seeing the May flowers in our future. At least in some parts of this country. Time has a way of changing things – in life, in love, and in business!

Let’s talk business.

Business in Southern Illinois and Middle Tennessee are doing well for us. Tennessee has a more positive outlook for business growth because the state and counties are proactive in working with companies. Illinois, on the other hand, is NOT. With the continued unbalanced budget in Illinois, business is moving forward, but not very aggressively. Many are moving out of the state. How can a state go for almost two years and NOT HAVE A BUDGET? I can tell you this: if a company went two years without a budget and without paying bills, we would be forced to close the doors. We all need to work hard now and collaborate with our government to get their act together and get their job done.

We business owners work every day to make sure things are going in the right direction. Sometimes this means that changes have to happen; and we do that! Finding a good work force is not an easy task. With people leaving the state of Illinois at such a rapid pace, you might notice that finding good staff is getting more difficult. We do not let that stop us at Priority Staffing Group, Ltd. or Priority Professional Group, Ltd.  We recruit daily for more that 50 open positions. Some are entry level, some are professional level, and some are nurse positions. If you are finding it hard to recruit new talent, call us. We do this every day and with success. You know, “Your Success is Our Priority!”

Don’t give up on Illinois, but do contact your government officials and let them know we are ready to get back to business – they should be too. They seem to fill their schedules with “new” bills to be voted on. How about… let’s stop adding new bills to be voted on and get this budget worked out!

I seem to just write random thoughts, but they are things we should all be thinking about and trying to get fixed.

Good job, Tennessee!

How embarrassing, Illinois. You should be ashamed!

BEP Mini Masters 2017

Bombshell Studio hole

Hole created by Bombshells Hair Studio and Spa

The 2017 BEP Mini-Masters, held inside the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce, was presented by the Bridgestone Americas Trust Fund. This event was an 18-hole indoor mini golf tournament featuring holes designed by local companies and organizations.

This fun take on the Masters Tournament featured prizes for the winning team and the sponsor with the best designed golf hole. Congratulations to The Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital team for winning the BEP Mini Masters this year.

Ally Farlow, Account Manager at our Murfreesboro office, attended the event as a spectator to show support for our community and the local schools.

“All of the golf holes were very creative – the businesses put a lot of time and effort into the event,” Ally said. “Everyone enjoyed themselves and helped raise money for an extremely important organization.”

All proceeds went to support the Business Education Partnership’s programs for students, teachers, school counselors and principals in the Murfreesboro City and Rutherford County school systems. BEP’s mission is “to foster interest in and to promote and support programs in public schools of the City of Murfreesboro and Rutherford County that will prepare students for the business world.”

Priority Staffing Group wants to support that mission, and that of many other great organizations in our community.
