The “Help Wanted” sign is out at Saginaw Township-based Morley Companies Inc., where the diversified company hopes to hire 300 new associates by the second quarter of 2014.
Open positions include, but are not limited to, web chat, roadside assistance and help desk agents, technical automotive consultants, and appliance technicians and supervisors, according to a Morley news release. French and Spanish bilingual speakers also are needed for a variety of positions.
“We are extremely excited about this opportunity. Our growth enables us to expand our services, while providing additional career opportunities in the Great Lakes Bay Region,” Morley President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Furlo said in a prepared statement.
Company officials say the expansion of existing business and some newly awarded long-term business contracts has resulted in the need for additional employees.
Morley helps clients, including some Fortune 500 companies, plan and operate meetings and events; it manages contact centers to handle such services as technical help desk and sales and marketing support, and it offers data collection and reporting and analysis services.
Morley offers theater services such as program design, staging, lighting and sound, photography and videography, and executive speech-writing.
Morley also designs, engineers, fabricates and installs exhibits and displays for trade shows, museums and other places.
Saginaw Township Manager Rob Grose said the hiring announcement is good news for Saginaw Township and the region.
“It’s obviously exciting news. Morley Companies has … put a great deal of investment in Saginaw Township, into Saginaw County as a whole,” he said. “Adding 300 more employees to the McCarty and Bay Road facility is outstanding.”
Grose said those additional employees will patronize area businesses, helping to stimulate the local economy.
“This is a a good shot in the arm for the entire Great Lakes Bay Region,” he said.
Grose said Morley is extremely successful and the township has a great partnership with the company. “Over the last seven, eight years, it’s just been a wonderful influx of investment and employees into the area. Without that I don’t think we’d be where we’re at,” he said.
