We all benefit when working together, whether with internal or outside stakeholders. Thus, the mantra “better together” came to life for all of us at Market Street Talent. When you peel back the layers and examine the core of professional staffing, the supply and demand of qualified professionals is really a matter of simple microeconomics:
The truth is, we are all dependent on one another, and collectively we create a vibrant staffing lifecycle. Employers can maximize their talent pool by working with specialized IT and technology staffing firms such as us here at Market Street Talent. Candidates can focus on their day-to-day activities, while their staffing partner identifies the next career opportunity. And we’re dependent upon a community of talented professionals and exceptional clients to keep the wheel spinning. We are indeed #BetterTogether.
All of us at Market Street Talent share a commitment to the betterment of our community. Broadly, we serve the IT industry from Boston, MA to Portland, ME and beyond, and—more specifically—our hometown of Portsmouth, NH.
Market Street Talent Gives Back is our official initiative to dedicate resources to charitable groups who are doing good within our surrounding community. Here’s some information about two local organizations we’re proud supporters of:
Food insecurity is one of the biggest problems facing today’s world, and the US is no exception. Founded in 1816, Gather is an agency committed to ending hunger in our community. Gather serves families experiencing hunger by providing nutritious food, and offering nutrition education, and recipes for healthy living.
Ninety cents per dollar donated to Gather goes directly toward local hunger relief on the Seacoast, including Portsmouth, Rye, Seabrook, Stratham, Hampton Falls, Hampton, Greenland, New Castle, Newington, North Hampton, and Kittery, Maine. Each year around the holidays, our team runs a food drive and collects items for donation to the Pantry Market. We also have team members who volunteer during the summer at the Meals 4 Kids program, which works alongside End 68 Hours of Hunger to bridge the gap normally filled by school lunch programs for children experiencing food insecurity.
Cross Roads House provides emergency and transitional shelter to homeless men, women, and children in the New Hampshire Seacoast area. They are guided by their mission, to meet the immediate needs of homeless families and individuals, and to provide them with the tools and guidance they need to successfully return to permanent housing. They currently house approximately 100 people on any given night, and their emergency shelter is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In addition to the volunteer efforts we participate in as a group, we encourage individual team members to use charitable PTO for volunteer causes that are important to them. We’re fortunate to have a team of people who are passionate about giving back to their community, and hope we can inspire you to find a way to get involved in yours too. Every little bit helps!
