Elaine Balady

CEO | The Assurance Group

Having joined the firm in 1985 as Director of Business Services, Elaine has held various positions with the Assurance group over the past thirty- five years culminating in a buy-out of the Senior Partner in February 2008.

Elaine and her team have organically grown and developed all three divisions of the company which includes Contingency Staffing, Direct Hire and Human Resources Consulting.

The organization has grown significantly since 1985, which is attributable to the unique Customer Service Program that Elaine spearheaded and developed and consistently implemented over the years.

The program she developed is based upon “Right Staffing” and goes to the heart of the clients increased need over the years to focus on efficiencies in productivity and their dependence upon their contingency personnel providers to partner with them to achieve these goals. The program requires intense visibility and constant interaction with her partners (clients) to achieve not only high levels of productivity throughout their organizations but to do so with low error ratios to improve upon their relationships with their clients.

These partnerships are developed by working with C-Suite participants who share vital information regarding the goals of their organization and allow the Assurance group Team to become “acting staff members” of the organization, participating in meetings on all levels designed to provide a true understanding of the day to day operations of the client, to have an in-depth knowledge of the plans and forecasts of the client company and to develop trusting relationships with all members of the clients team.

This program has allowed Assurance to develop long term relationships with clients and an ability to participate in and assist with their growth and development.

Elaine is a Past President of the New Jersey Staffing Alliance, a Member of Vistage International and a Board Member of Dimensional Merchandising Incorporated.
