A Commitment to Grow and to Serve
On Thursday, July 14, 2011 Knowledge Services’ valued team members, shareholders, members of the press, and invited clients gathered at the company’s headquarters at 5875 Castle Creek Parkway gathered for a press conference. Indianapolis Mayor, Greg Ballard, announced that an additional 200 jobs would be provided by CEO Julie Bielawski’s professional services company, Knowledge Services.
Mayor Ballard announced, “Knowledge Services’ continued investment in Indianapolis is another boost to growing our IT industry.” He went on to introduce, “The jobs this company provides are exactly the types of quality jobs we are focused on bringing to Indianapolis.”
Founded in 1994, Knowledge Services provides temporary workers for industries including: technology, entertainment, health care, manufacturing and engineering. Operating in over 30 states, the company has over 600 employees working for public and private sector organizations. Some client names includeWellPoint,Disney,Mattel,Hill-Rom, and theState of Indiana government. The company also provides services utilizing a proprietary web-based application empowering client companies to better track their temporary labor spend, expenses and human capital.
While the company continues to provide IT staffing and training services, Bielawski explained, offerings have been expanded to include services managing temporary labor hiring and employment processes. “We’re in a really tough economy at the moment, and clients are looking for ways to continue their initiatives and get all their rollouts done in a timely fashion within budget.”
In exchange for the new jobs it will create, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation has offered the company nearly $2.7 million in state income tax credits as well as a job-training grant of $25,000. At the request of Develop Indy, the City of Indianapolis will consider an additional property tax abatement.
