LGC is excited to announce the launch of EnviroStaff and MarketStaff, two new divisions of LGC Hospitality!
Meet Our New Staffing Divisions
EnviroStaff and MarketStaff operate separately from LGC and further our reach into two verticals that will benefit from the customized staffing solutions we offer. Just like LGC, these new staffing divisions partner with clients to connect them with great employees to fulfill their hiring needs. Let’s talk a little more in detail about EnviroStaff and MarketStaff and how they can service clients and candidates across the U.S.
EnviroStaff works closely with both candidates and clients in the environmental industry to make direct hire (and some temporary) placements. EnviroStaff was founded to help connect companies with the environmental professionals they need to make operations run smoothly and is the first of our two new staffing divisions.
When managing environmental projects, it’s important to have a knowledgeable, specialized team in place. EnviroStaff will make sure each candidate that you speak with has the training and experience needed to get the job done. Our recruiters have the capability to recruit for the following sectors:
- Environmental Consulting
- Environmental Remediation
- Environmental Health and Safety
(To see a full list of environmental positions they place, click here.)
A Seattle-based environmental company is among the first clients to partner with EnviroStaff. The Operations Manager had this to say about their partnership: “The EnviroStaff team has done a great job sourcing candidates for interviews and giving us a chance to decide if our opportunities are a fit. The team keeps the process simple reaching out to schedule interviews, following up on interviews and asking us for anything that needs to change.”

The primary focus of MarketStaff is to provide every employee needed for production from the factory to the floor. Working closely with clients, MarketStaff will customize a plan to recruit retail and distribution professionals based on job descriptions and position requirements. Though direct hire is offered, the second of the two new staffing divisions recruits and places mostly temporary professionals for short-term assignments.
Being affiliated with LGC gives MarketStaff access to their easy-to-use online platform, LGC Now. This allows clients to submit orders and manage their rosters with the transparency of real-time updates. Plus, workers can choose what shifts they work and record their hours, all through their smart phones. Offering this flexibility has been a key difference in attracting and retaining employees throughout the pandemic.
In the retail, distribution/warehouse, and merchandising sectors, it can take a village to cover all the tasks that need to be done. MarketStaff understands the importance of having a reliable team and how they’re key for smooth-running operations. Here’s a brief list of the sectors they work in and positions they place under this staffing divisions:
- Retail: Inventory Clerks, Stockers, Cashiers, Cart Pushers, Seasonal Staff
- Distribution/Warehouse: Dock Loaders, Pickers/Packers, Line Workers, Batch Mixers, Shipping & Receiving Clerks
- Merchandising: Product Demonstrators, Product Assembly, Brand Ambassadors, Signage & Tagging Staff, Store Set Up & Re-Set Crews
- Additional Resources: Cleaning Crews, Movers, Food Service Workers, Baristas, Maintenance/Ground Services
Jaime Horning, VP of MarketStaff, says this on its’ founding: “In 2020 everything changed. What we saw as one of the most pressing issues then (and still two years later) – product supply was low, shelves were empty at the stores, shipping was delayed, companies were shutting their doors. Why? The need was there more than ever, but there was not sufficient staff in place to meet the demands.
This is where the idea of MarketStaff comes into play. LGC, a company with experts in the field of recruitment and staffing since the early 2000’s, needed to go beyond the hospitality industry that we were built upon and transition into other industries that desperately needed our support.
You will see the difference between a staffing agency and a staffing partner like MarketStaff. Let us show you!”

LGC is proud and thankful we can service more clients and connect more job seekers with great opportunities in these new staffing divisions. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for them in the future.
