POUGHKEEPSIE, NY – February 16, 2012 — Since 1969, Ethan Allen Personnel has thrived by delivering exceptional resources and consultation to staffing clients and candidates alike.  Now the company is launching a new Web site and social media outreach strategy, as it also ramps up other technology tools to augment its services.

“We offer a high level of service and expertise to jobseekers and clients,” says Lauren Brophy, Marketing Director, which has offices in Poughkeepsie, Fishkill and New Windsor.  “So it’s incumbent on us to use the best available tools to improve that service.”

Previously known as Ethan Allen Personnel Group, Ethan Allen Personnel has three distinct service offerings: Ethan Allen Recruitment handles permanent professional placements, while Ethan Allen Staffing provides temporary and temp-to-hire personnel; its Staff-Line group is a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) division that assists clients with their HR functions.

The new Web site – designed and developed by Chicago branding agency Biersma Creative – explains those services in clear detail, and features a host of new functions for clients and candidates within a clean, easy-to-navigate structure.  “We wanted our site to be dynamic and contemporary, and include tools that make it that much easier for people to interact with us,” Brophy explains.

The site, located at, stresses the firm’s depth of specialization in its three primary practice areas, and the benefits it brings to clients and candidates alike.

Among the Web site’s online tools is an online jobs database for candidates, accompanied by a new real-time application system, and new real-time portals for employees and clients.

Beyond the Web site, Ethan Allen Personnel will offer an enhanced social media presence, too, thanks to sites on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, taking full advantage of this exponentially-growing channel for recruitment.
“We’ve had enormous success and pleasure serving this community over the last four decades,” says Brophy, “and this is just another step in that direction.”
