April 19, 2018 – netPolarity, a Fortune 1,000 staffing firm based in San Jose, California, has chosen Grand Junction in Colorado’s Grand Valley for its second location. During a year-long site selection process, Grand Junction managed to beat out locations in Utah and Iowa for the win. Here’s more from The Daily Sentinel:
“A Silicon Valley-based staffing firm will open a second location in Grand Junction, with plans to hire dozens of employees, the Grand Junction Economic Partnership announced today.
The Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade approved $147,500 in incentives to help bring the company, netPolarity, to Grand Junction.
The company plans to hire 59 new employees in Grand Junction over the next four years. Those jobs are expected to pay an average annual wage of $42,508, which is equivalent to 102 percent of Mesa County’s average annual wage.
NetPolarity reached out to GJEP last year during a nationwide search for a second location. Established in 2000, the company is a full-service, global workforce procurement provider. It was named to the Top 50 Fastest Growing Staffing Firms in 2008 and was included on Entrepreneur magazine’s list of Hot 500 Fastest Growing Companies. NetPolarity employes 60 people with an average income of $65,000 in its California office.
‘Our primary objective with this expansion is to gain access to a pool of workforce interested in long-term job tenure and building something great together,’ netPolarity President David Chuang said in a statement. ‘In Silicon Valley, workforce demand is so high, the workforce mentality is transitional, where typical tenure for an employee is 12 to 18 months. We are really drawn to the Midwestern vale of hard work, strong work ethics and loyalty. We are fortunate to have discovered Grand Junction where there is a big city feel but yet a small town flavor. Our presence is well-received and people are excited to have access to Silicon Valley type of opportunities.’
GJEP Executive Director Robin Brown said the jobs netPolarity is bringing to the Grand Valley ‘are exactly the types of stable, high-paying job opportunities’ GJEP wants to attract to the Grand Valley.
‘We’re excited to prove that our rural community is in fact the idea location for a global, tech-related enterprise like netPolarity,’ she said in a statement.”
