Celebrating a Milestone–30 Years in Business


Milwaukee, WI (November 2, 2017) – Parallel Employment Group, Inc., is celebrating 30 years in business. 

Recognizing the need for staffing and employment in the Greater Milwaukee area and having a philanthropic heart, Mike Skemp, Parallel’s Owner and President, surrounded himself with a knowledgeable, hard-working support team to make his vision possible. 

The story began in the back of a Milwaukee, WI barbershop as Personnel Alternatives (later to become P.A. Staffing, and most recently Parallel Employment Group). Skemp knew the key to success was to provide more than just labor. He realized his clients needed a true staffing partner.  As a result of Skemp’s vision, Parallel has become a full-service employment company.  Thirty years later, Parallel has worked with over 2,000 clients, grown to 18 branch offices, and 3 divisions. In 2017 alone, Parallel has put over 8,900 people to work and anticipates a continued climb year over year. 

Parallel offers sourcing, recruiting and support for temporary, temp-to-hire and direct hire in clerical, light industrial, professional and skilled industries. At Parallel we want to get to know you and fully understand what kind of employment you are seeking in order to help you reach your goals. Using our wide-reaching and diverse client base, we work tirelessly to find you the position that best matches your interests and skills.
