Hollister Staffing Celebrates 30 YEARS of Serving Boston

This year, Hollister Staffing is celebrating 30 years of serving the Boston community! We are looking at how we have impacted our city’s diverse workforce over the years, remembering stories of personal triumph and transformation, professional development, and massive financial gain for the city of Boston and its residents.

What specifically has Hollister done for Boston?  Here’s a fiscal breakdown: 

Over the last 30 years, Hollister has…

  • placed nearly 24,000 Boston workers in contract and contract-to-hire roles,
  • paid a gross sum of over $354 million directly to Boston’s workforce,
  • placed 9,400 Bostonians in full-time jobs,
  • of those placements, paid, in total, over $1.87B—talk about impacting the community!

Hollister’s contributions to the community go much deeper than just the financial—it gets personal. What you can’t measure in dollars, are the more intangible ways Hollister has served Boston’s local community over the last three decades, which include:

  • the number of individual futures Hollister has helped shape for the better,
  • the relationships formed with many Boston-serving non-profit organizations—including the mentorship and workforce development programs at YMCA, YW, City Year, and Cristo Rey High School,
  • the time spent volunteering each year at organizations such as Pine Street Inn and Cradles to Crayons,
  • the alliance with Conexion to help empower leaders from Boston’s Latinx population, and—
  • the life-altering coaching, mentoring, and workshops offered by the Hollister Institute—helping individuals with self-awareness, communication, and mindful leadership skill development.

As the company reflects on its rich 30-year history, and leans into everything the future has to offer, Hollister continues to place a strong emphasis on living in the present, while doing so completely in service of others.  As Kip Hollister, CEO/Founder of Hollister Staffing and Hollister Institute says, “In order to effect change in the world, you must first effect change in yourself and your immediate environment.”
