Multi-Unit Case Study


Company Overview: The Ōnin Group is a Birmingham-based, privately-held group of companies focused on people. Our core business is staffing, where we are among the top two percent of domestic staffing companies in sales volume and rank as one of SIA’s largest staffing and industrial staffing firms. Ōnin Staffing is The Ōnin Group’s industrial and light clerical staffing division. This is our flagship division and the driving force behind our rapid growth rate.

Positions Placed: 26 Business Development Managers/Market Managers

FireSeeds’ Point of Contact: Jim Weaver, COO and Blake Stevens, Director of People and Culture

“FireSeeds was able to help us scale at a crucial point when growth through acquisition created high-demand for new top talent.” Jim Weaver, COO

FireSeeds partnered with Onin at a time of rapid growth with over 30% increase in internal sales and the acquisition of a Chicago based firm. Over a period of 9 months, FireSeeds placed 12 Business Development Managers and 14 Market Managers in new and existing markets across the country. This infusion of talent has Onin on pace to meet their goal to be a billion dollar staffing firm by the year 2023. 

Onin Staffing is the flagship company within The Onin Group and was started in Dallas in 1993. As a debt-free staffing firm in the top 3% of staffing companies in sales volume, Onin Staffing operates over 100 full-service branches in 17 states in the light industrial and clerical industry. They have become one of the largest industrial staffing firms in the Country and will exceed $420M in sales this year. They attribute their success to maintaining a high value on people and a culture of growth and personal development. They truly live out their values of service, integrity, innovation, and performance; and hiring leaders who live these out is of utmost importance to them.

 “FireSeeds learned our culture and found leaders across the country that were a fit for the expansion of our brand nationwide.” Blake Stevens, Director of People and Culture
