Recruiting Services for the Packaging Industry

Our Recruiting Services for the Packaging Industry Creates an Ideal Workplace for Business Owners and Job Seekers

The Packaging Industry in United States is expected to reach nearly $220 billion within the next few years.

As the number of international brands offer chemical-free, organic, and natural products in the United States increases, US packaging corporations are faced with an enormous challenge.

A growing number of companies using packaging products are focusing on recyclable and reusable packaging to appease consumers who want a package that fits into their environmentally-conscientious, increasingly chaotic lifestyles.  This increased demand for convenience packaging, has compelled designers in various industries to be innovative to provide choices.

With the Food and Drug Administration regulating the safety of food packaging, all food-contact packaging materials must pass their rigorous approval process.  These packaging needs must be met while providing the most economical methods to distribute and preserve food, pharmaceutical products, and other consumables.

With over twenty-five years in recruiting and staffing, Recruiting for Growth brings expertise to the packaging industry.  We have a thorough understanding of the industry and what it takes to fill open positions.

All of these challenges are being faced, met and exceeded by our clients and job seekers in the packaging industry.
