Community Involvement

We invest in people – and there’s a lot more to that than connecting job seekers to careers. In addition to monetary donations, we participate in community events and donate our time as volunteers. Supporting our local communities is central to everything we do because it’s where our company started. Mike Skemp, owner and founder of Parallel Employment Group, started this business with the goal of helping people, and that is what we continue to do.
