Denver, January 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ – The Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN) announced on Thursday that Jet.com has opened a 160,000 square-foot warehouse and distribution center located along USA Parkway in the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center. As one of the business partners assisting Jet.com in their decision to move to Storey county, IntelliSource could not be more thrilled to welcome them to the area.
IntelliSource brought its first regional presence to the Reno-Sparks area in late 2011, recognizing the market’s potential to grow into what it is today. The company has been an active participant in the area’s rapid growth as Reno quickly earned its title as “the biggest little city in the world”- which created its own set of challenges for area businesses as the unemployment rate dropped from 12.4% in 2012 to 5.6% in 2015.
Leveraging its dynamic resource management platform, IntelliSource quickly found its place, partnering with several businesses and colleges in the area to find a high volume of quality employees despite the tight market. IntelliSource recognized that being agile enough to utilize its expansive community relationships to actively source high quality talent and grow with the market and its customers’ ever-changing demands was a winning recipe for overcoming obstacles to ensure they are providing jobs to citizens of Nevada. Scott Walker, IntelliSource Regional Market Manager, worked directly with EDAWN and Jet.com to open its new warehouse. Walker is proud of what IntelliSource has been able to accomplish, stating “During the last 4 years, IntelliSource has hired 4911 associates in the Northern Nevada area alone and we are adding more jobs each week.” He went on to say, “It is a great feeling to know you are helping Northern Nevada by providing jobs for people, supporting the local economy and assisting businesses to reach their full potential. For me, it is a very fulfilling position.”
The company’s unique business approach was noted recently by Nevada Governor, Brian Sandoval, who applauded the impact IntelliSource has made in the Northern Nevada area. “The governor’s office has taken notice of our presence and some of the best practices our company has implemented to better the entire state and continue to improve the economy,” stated Walker. Several of those best practices included streamlining the process for background checks and building relationships with the local colleges for better candidate recruitment.
“We enjoy being a trusted advisor and connecting great companies with great people in their local communities across the country,” said Ajay Bagal, Chief Operating Officer at IntelliSource. “Most of our partners want to know that we can rapidly shift resource levels and obtain the critical skills that their businesses require when they want them. Whether we are managing all aspects of a high growth company ramp up or insulating the variable labor costs of a company facing economic headwinds, it is our entire company’s mission to consistently serve and categorically over deliver results for our clients.”
