Morley Companies adding 300 jobs

SAGINAW TOWNSHIP (WJRT) -

(01/09/14) - Good news on the job front in the Great Lakes Bay Region.

Morley Companies announced it will be hiring another 300 workers over the first six months of the year.

The company hired at least that many people last year, and the plan is to keep hiring.

Morley Companies had about 400 associates in 2009.  By the end of this year, it could have more than 2,000.

Twenty-one-year-old Zach Schatzer of Bay City had a job this past summer, but wanted to join a company that could  lead to a career.  He applied once at Morley, didn't get the job, but was offered a position the second time he applied.

"I have already been promoted once, and I absolutely love the company," Schatzer said.

The Fortune 500 clients of Morley seem to agree, which keep giving Morley projects, so the company keeps hiring. Jill Gushow says Morley has new clients as well, so the help wanted sign is back out, if it ever was taken down.

"Everything from entry level, providing customer service via the phone or via Web chat, to more technical positions," Gushow says.

Morley does everything from event planning, to theater services, to contact help centers, by phone and on the Web, a diversified company which credits its associates for the job growth.

"We are able to find talented individuals who we can put to work immediately," Gushow said.

Saginaw Township Manager Rob Grose says Morley's success has had a ripple effect in the township and the entire region.

"The more employees obviously that we get into the Bay Road corridor, the more, there are spin-offs, to the restaurants, to the retailers, to the medical, dental," Grose said.

Morley's good news comes a month after TRW announced it was closing its Saginaw plant - 600 people will be out of work.

"There may be many positions that will be good fit, so we encourage people, take a look at Morley," says Gushow.
