Rona Borre formed Instant Alliance, one of the fastest growing Staffing Companies in America in 2001 from a spare bedroom in her Chicago condo. Today, her company bills in the millions of dollars annually, as she places primarily technologists and finance professionals.
Her clients include Fortune 500 firms, mid-sized companies, and smaller firms where she is looking to strategically place individuals who will make a difference with the clients with whom she works. Borre has discovered one factor that most placement companies miss. Instead of stumbling through hundreds of resumes, she spends a lot of time with the powers that be with her client companies to learn what the culture is of the client. She gets to know the executives of the company so she can figure out just who will fit into the culture and who will do the best job.
