Staffing Agency in Hartford, CT
As the capital of the state of Connecticut, Hartford plays an important role in the economy of the state and is rich in history. Hartford is Connecticut’s fourth-largest city after the coastal cities of Bridgeport, New Haven, and Stamford; where C-Suite Assistants also services clients as a staffing agency for administrative and executive assistants.
A Leader Among Insurance Recruiting Agencies in Hartford
Hartford is nicknamed the “Insurance Capital of the World” because it hosts many insurance company headquarters and insurance is the region’s major industry. The first insurance company was established in the late 1700‘s and the Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company, established in 1866, was the first to set the standards for industrial safety.
Today, insurance companies such as Aetna, Conning and Company, The Hartford, The Phoenix Company, and Cigna all call Hartford or the Hartford region home. Travelers, Lincoln National, and United Healthcare have major operations in the city. United Technologies and Northeast Utilities, both Fortune 500 firms, are also headquartered in Hartford.
Employment and the Talent Pool in Hartford
Hartford was once one of the richest cities in the United States. While the unemployment rate in Hartford has risen and now sits above the U.S. average, recent job growth is positive; up by 1.06%. The cost of living, however, is 3.8% lower than the U.S. average, making the Hartford area an attractive place to live and work. The Hartford metropolitan area remains a wealthy community. West Hartford, the most affluent suburb of Hartford, is known for its trending restaurants, great shopping, busy nightlife, and excellent schools. It was named by Family Circle as one of the top ten U.S. towns to raise a family. Other notable communities surrounding Hartford include Berlin, Middletown, Bristol, Bolton, Canton, Burlington, Farmington, and Avon.
What does this mean for employment? It means that much of the talent pool for administrative support lies outside the city and commutes daily into the city from neighboring towns. The average commute from most of these towns is 22 minutes. It also means that many smaller investment firms and boutiques servicing the insurance industry have sprung up outside the city in neighboring towns, and these smaller firms also require administrative support. Although the unemployment rate remains above the national average, finding quality administrative and executive assistants from recruitment agencies in Hartford & the surrounding area remains difficult.
This has led to opportunity for C-Suite Assistants in the Hartford area. When a major Fortune 100 Technology firm, the largest employer in CT, was unsuccessful with their own internal recruiters and had exhausted their efforts with local staffing firms, they called upon C-Suite Assistants to source an Executive Assistant for the Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy. In another instance, a boutique Private Equity firm in the greater Hartford area, rather than use a local staffing agency in Hartford, called C-Suite to identify and attract a Regulatory Assistant for a hybrid Admin/Compliance role.
