Est. 1975 – 40 Years!

40 yearsIt all started back in 1975.

It began out of a one room office where husband and wife Jim F. Carchidi and Linda A. Carchidi started JFC Personnel, a permanent placement service.  Being a young married couple starting a family and a business; things were tough – real tough.  The duo had to make every penny count, every second count; and fortunately for us they did! 

It almost ended in 1997.

In 1997, the founders were approached by a publicly traded, big box staffing entity. This interested buyer offered a BIG payout. Ultimately Jim and Linda opted not to cash in on their offer. They realized that by accepting the deal office closures and layoffs would ensue. Husband and wife, Jim and Linda Carchidi, simply could not nor would not jeopardize the livelihood of their JFC work family.

So not only are the JFC Staffing Companies LOCAL but the founders are LOYAL – loyal to their family of employees, loyal to their customers and loyal to the communities which helped them turn their dream into a reality. 

Today.

Today we have a much larger work family spread across three niche recruiting companies with offices in Chambersburg, Carlisle, Camp Hill, Harrisburg, York, Lancaster, and West Lawn.  

There is JFC Global with specialized recruiters who find hidden talent in the areas of Information Technology, Engineering and Account/Finance. JFC Medical who execute targeted talent search strategies for today’s healthcare practices and institutions. JFC Workforce with recruiters who deliver talent-on-demand in the areas of Office-Professional, Skilled Labor and light-industrial. 

The next chapter.

Our vision is to be a family business celebrated as a great place to work and where great people work in focused, high performance teams, setting and meeting goals, and constantly winning.  Where meaningful relationships translate into positive experiences. 

Life is too short not to have passion and purpose in the work that you do…

Throughout the course of our lives we will spend more time working than any other activity.  That dedication of time should improve our quality of life, rather than act as a weight that sucks the happiness out of us.

What we do here is BIG…we influence one of the most important aspects of people’s lives – how they earn their income.  Our contribution helps them pay their mortgage, feed their families, and purchase birthday presents for their children.  

The JFC Staffing Companies are in the business of connecting people. We aim to elevate individual careers and accelerate company growth through extraordinary levels of customer service and performance. The decision was made to be GREAT.  Providing positive experiences for our customers will be the driving force to our success and we are excited for the future!

To the hundreds of thousands of customers who put their trust in the JFC work family…we say…Thank you!

 

 

 

 

Do you know what controls happiness?

It’s not our reality that shapes us, it’s the lens through which we view the world  that   shapes our reality.  – Shawn Achor, The Happiness Advantage

Your daily actions, and chosen state of mind, advance your capacity to be happy.  After all, when you feel upbeat you see the positive in situations.  And when you feel sad, you focus on the downside.

Personal Challenge: Maximize how you spend your time and energy.  Make happiness a habit.  Focus on delivering at least one positive experience to another person every single day.  Compliment another’s outfit, point out to someone one of their strength’s that you admire, and/or smile to someone in need.

By delivering positive experiences to others, “YOU” become happier.  Soon you begin to have a sense of control even in the most challenging of situations.  The end result, you will begin taking setbacks in stride and realize that you can create better outcomes.

Happiness is a journey and life is a laboratory for learning how to harness this emotion.  Today try being more mindful of opportunities to identify and practice new abilities in being happy.  Be fanatical about delivering positive experiences – live happy!
