In 2022, this leading credit and payments company who provides outsourcing services for bankcard-related products to banks and non-bank lenders in North America, with over 3,000 employees across five locations, saw significant growth by bringing on a set large new clientele catapulting the immediate need to hire 200 people to support their call centers.
Leadership at the organization was uncertain whether their internal team could handle the logistical requirements needed to support the new clientele. This leading credit and payments company turned to an outside staffing partner to manage the recruitment, interview, and hiring process for all 200 call center candidates.
Based on Forrest Solutions’ highly regarded proprietary 10 step recruiting process and sea of deeply tenured recruiters who have proven successful delivering temp-to-perm staffing solutions for some of the worlds’ largest companies across the country, leadership selected Forrest Solutions as their staffing partner.

Forrest Solutions began this massive undertaking by screening almost 250 potential candidates to fill the call center positions across this organization’s five locations.
