May 16th, 2022 – Canton, OH: FoxHire happily celebrated 30 years of servicing recruiting firms, candidates, and clients last month! The company was started as “National Contracting Service” (NCS) by Mike Kappel in 1992. After a few name changes from NCS to Top Echelon Contracting, and now to FoxHire, the company is poised for immense growth. 

FoxHire’s Past

From the beginning FoxHire was started with the goal of enabling recruiting firms and clients to grow their businesses through contract staffing. Mike Kappel saw the opportunity to offer Employer of Record services for the first time to recruiting firms and clients via many conversations with customers in the early nineties. Since then the term Employer of Record has gained immense popularity. It is widely thought within FoxHire that Mike coined that term, so much so that the company sought a copyright on the word in the early 2000s. 

Since then the company has worked with 40% of Fortune 1000 companies, thousands of school districts and hospitals, as well as many small to mid-sized organizations. Over 30,000 contract workers have been employed by FoxHire over the years, and even more will be impacted in the coming years. 

FoxHire’s Future

In the recent past the company has become a digital leader, pairing software and technology with the expertise of its staff. This has positioned FoxHire to become the EOR of choice for customers wanting the best customer experience. This has enabled FoxHire to grow 40% year-over-year for the last two years, even through the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“Our transformation over the last 5 years has been incredible. I couldn’t imagine the reaction of the first team of employees if they could see what we are doing today. We are excited to lead the next generation of change and improvement in the EOR space, and we are so thankful to our customers for allowing us to support them for so many years”, said Colin LaBeau, President of FoxHire. 

FoxHire has offices in Canton, OH and employs workers in almost all 50 states. They offer employer of record services to staffing firms, recruiting agencies, and all other types of employers. With expertise in healthcare and education, FoxHire is a market leader for EOR services in highly regulated industries. For more information on the company visit their website here.
