Select Staffing Merges with Temp Giant

Santa Barbara–based Select Staffing, one of the 10 biggest temp companies in the country, announced this week it is merging with EmployBridge in Atlanta. Select Staffing went through a massive restructure after it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last year, the Pacific Coast Business Times reported, and will move its headquarters to Atlanta. Much of its operations, however, will remain in Santa Barbara. Select Staffing matches approximately 300,000 temporary employees with accounting, finance, and IT companies every year.
