Connecting With CASE Anchors To Staff Up and Grow Jobs

Anchor Staffing, Inc. is a Chicago firm specializing in innovative workforce solutions that strengthen neighborhoods and is a participant in WBC’s Chicago Anchors for a Strong Economy (CASE) program. In 2016, CASE connected Anchor Staffing, Inc. with Iron Mountain, a leading provider of information storage and management solutions. While Iron Mountain had the expertise to execute a contract with leading Chicago institutions, as a publicly traded organization it needed to meet minority and women-owned business requirements. Through a strategic partnership with Anchor Staffing, Inc., initiated through CASE, Iron Mountain was able to secure a contract with The University of Chicago, resulting in nearly 30 neighborhood jobs.
