There is a definite theme running through the business communities of South Jersey and Philadelphia. Simply walk into any company and ask the question: Has anyone here ever worked as a temporary employee or been placed in a permanent position through Emerson Group? The chances are excellent that at least one person, and maybe more, will raise their hand, and, if not, someone will know someone else who has. This is not surprising since the Emerson family has owned and operated the company for over forty years. A conservative estimate puts the number of people they have put to work at over 40,000. People looking for temporary positions, students seeking summer and/or holiday employment, working single parents, people in need of a part-time second job, skilled professionals looking for temporary assignments which lead to permanent positions, and people already in permanent jobs who are looking to make a change for the better – all have had their employment needs met by Emerson Group. There are also many stories of three generations within families who have worked for Emerson, thus establishing a real legacy of loyalty to the firm.
