AtWork Group Increases Reach with New Middle Tennessee Location

Leading staffing solutions provider continues national expansion by signing all-new franchise owner, Angie Hedge

AtWork Group, an award-winning national staffing agency franchise, has expanded its national footprint by opening an all-new franchise to Middle Tennessee professional, Angie Hedge. The new territory will help better serve the area’s staffing needs and add to the more than 20 already established AtWork locations in Tennessee.

“My territory covers a large part of Middle and West Tennessee. In that area, there are plenty of unmet staffing needs such as light industrial, clerical and union-based positions,” said Hedge. “With my background in human resources, law, and industrial and organizational psychology, starting an AtWork franchise appealed to me as a great and comfortable way to enter the next stage in my career.”

Hedge comes to AtWork Group with nearly 20 years of human resources experience as the HR manager for a leading container manufacturing corporation. A Tennessee native, her varied career and educational background includes a J.D. from the Nashville School of Law, a master’s degree in industrial and organizational psychology, and a bachelor’s degree in chemistry. As a human resources and staffing professional, she is widely versed in union management, union avoidance and union integration.

Having discovered the AtWork Group as a result of observing various staffing methods at a local career center, Hedge went forward with becoming a franchise owner in an effort to provide the level of human resources she felt were missing in her area. Her first AtWork territory location is now open with plans to expand with multiple offices.

“Angie’s varied background brings a wealth of experience to the AtWork team and we’re looking forward to watching the impact her territory makes on the middle Tennessee market,” said Jason Leverant, president and COO of AtWork Group. “Not only will she be able to guide clients through their union and employee law matters, her unique awareness of the industrial sector should help the area’s workforce strengthen its entire foundation.”

AtWork provides companies with flexible employment solutions with the highest level of service available. AtWork was recently named to Inavero’s 2017 Best of Staffing Client and Talent Award list, No. 139 in Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2016 Franchise 500 list, No. 2605 in Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 list, and received a fourth time ranking on Franchise Times’ Top 200+ list.
