People Store Staffing Solutions Founder John Nalli joined me for an interview on Journey To Success Radio.
John Nalli’s journey within the staffing industry is truly a Canadian success story. After graduating College with a Business Diploma in 1995, John entered the staffing industry by accepting a position at Adecco. For 6 years at this company, John gained invaluable knowledge while moving up through departments; he started with Temporary and Permanent Staffing, then moved onto Business Development, which lead him into Branch Management and finally Area Management.
Due to all the mergers and acquisitions occurring in the industry at that time, John accepted an opportunity to elevate his career at Spherion as the GTA Regional Vice President where he was responsible for aiding in the growth of the then midsize company to a larger industry player. During his 3 years with Spherion, John succeeded in his goal of helping to gain market share and did so by opening and expanding many branches for the company.
Armed with extensive staffing knowledge and a series of achievements under his belt, including 9 years of industry experience and a thriving track record of success, John felt it was time for a new challenge.
With encouragement from a close friend and already successful entrepreneur Frank Cianciulli, John decided to set out on his own and build a new type of staffing firm. In 2003 John designed his business plan and launched PEOPLEsource from his kitchen table. With only an idea, a dream, and a ton of ambition, John set in motion one of the most successful staffing firms to ever hit the Canadian market.
Some of the most notable highlights during John’s 6 years as President of PEOPLEsource include:
Although PEOPLEsource achieved great success as a general staffing firm, John realized that a more specialized approach to the staffing industry was required. In 2009, John decided to develop specialty staffing departments catering to the unique and diverse landscape of his clients and candidates. After test marketing this concept with tremendous success, John spun off People Store, a staffing firm which for the first time bridges a complete platform across 9 distinct service lines. John then divested his interests in PEOPLEsource and has rebranded under the name People Store Staffing Solution Inc. This migration allowed John to realize his ultimate goal of being able to bring a complete “One Stop” staffing experience to both his clients and candidates.
