United Personnel Named Among Top 100 Women-led Businesses In Massachusetts
SPRINGFIELD — United Personnel announced it has been named one of the top 100 women-led businesses in Massachusetts by the Commonwealth Institute, a nonprofit that supports female business owners. The list, published in the Boston Globe, was developed based on revenue, number of full-time employees in the state, team diversity, and innovation.
The rankings feature a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, business services, healthcare, education, human services, and retail. United Personnel was number 75 on the list, and was one of only two companies based in Western Mass. represented.
Focused on helping to connect people with job openings at local companies, United Personnel has seen decades of success as a women-led organization. Founded by Mary Ellen Scott in 1984 with her late husband, Jay Canavan, United Personnel is now on its second generation of female leadership under President Tricia Canavan.
“We are very proud and honored to be recognized among such a strong group of businesses, and of women leaders,” Canavan said. “We are committed to continuing to contribute to the development of leadership among our own employees, and also among our clients who are looking to connect with diverse leadership talent, or diverse candidates seeking careers where they will be able to employ and develop their talents.”
