San Antonio Firm Stays True to Founder's Ideals

Bullock Personnel Mines and Delivers the Area's Best Talent

Bettye Bullock, CPC was a successful figure in the San Antonio Staffing industry well before her entrepreneurial debut.  Prior to establishing Bullock Personnel in 1981, she developed many years of high-level experience in production, training and management at the San Antonio offices of both a national and local staffing firm.  Bullock's success there as well as her exceptional leadership of Bullock Personnel, marked a distinguished career that ended with your retirement in 1994.  That year, she sold her business to a longtime, top-producing employee - current company president Janet Connell.

Reflecting on the company's evolution over the past two decades, Connell points with pride to a diversifying client base, increasing job placements and a growing team.  What hasn't changed, she says is the nature of Bullock Personnel's service.  "Bettye envisioned a company that would shift the hiring burden away from employers by doing its job superbly.  The personal attention we provide clients and applicants sets us apart in the marketplace, as does our commitment to making that magical match for every job opening."

Proving All Personnel Services Are Not the Same

Bullock Personnel's resources and capabilities are on a par with those of its best-known competitors.  But the company's dynamic team separates it from the rest.  "Our consultants' initiative understanding of employers' needs arises from their uncommonly close client relationships," Connell explains.  "Rather than simply sending employers a pack of available applicants, our team gives each assignment thorough, deliberate consideration to arrive at three to five highly qualified candidates

A Down-Home Advantage:  Texans Serving Texans

According to Connell, Bullock Personnel enjoys another important advantage in the San Antonio marketplace - its status as a locally owned business.  "Texas is quite unique.  We know our market and how to service that market.  Our familiarity and synergy with our clients have allowed us to narrow the placement process down to a science."

Small private companies and international corporations throughout San Antonio turn to Bullock Personnel for permanent placement at every organizational level - from administrative to upper-level executive.  In response to community health care providers' growing demand, Bullock Personnel recently added a medical placement division - an area that is now a very active part of its business.
