When LGC was founded in 2003, we were operating solely in Indianapolis. Over the past 18 years, we’ve expanded to more than 35 cities across the country. Each local office is diverse and integral to the success of LGC. This series will look at our offices individually, highlighting what makes them unique. Get ready to meet LGC Houston.
LGC is located in four cities across the Lone Star State. We’re especially proud to be in Houston, the most populous city in the state. Since May 2016, this office has been a part of some incredible events that highlight the diversity of the staffing industry. These include the Houston Rodeo, UFC and WWE events, MLB championships, Space Center Houston, and the Super Bowl in 2017.
Besides these great events what really makes Houston unique is its culture. According to Gabbie Castillo, Area Director overseeing the Texas offices, “We have a very diverse city and it reflects within our office as well. All colors, creeds, genders, nationalities, and religions.” Often called Space City and H-Town, “the city has a population from various ethnic and religious backgrounds and a large and growing international community. Houston is the most diverse metropolitan area in Texas and has been described as the most racially and ethnically diverse major metropolis in the U.S.”
Houston was hit hard by the pandemic like the rest of the country. But after reopening in mid-March, our staffing managers believe they’re getting back to where they were pre-pandemic. With stadiums and event venues approved for 100% capacity, we expect an influx of concerts and shows in the near future. Gabbie said this about their reopening efforts: “With Houston being the largest city in the state, we lead the way in ensuring safety protocols are met. Our staff are THE leaders in the industry and partners come to us first because we are the experts. Managers and field staff alike.”
In the 5 years this office has been opened, we’ve been constantly impressed by the LGC Houston team, led by five strong women who work tirelessly to make sure our clients and employees have a great staffing experience. We can’t wait to see what they do in the future.
