Supply Chain Search Firm Achieves Balance With New Brand, Website, Ownership, and Recognition

New Image and re-branding in response to the ever-changing world of business and how we conduct it in the workplace

Press Release - For Immediate Release

(Westport, MA) – Supply Chain recruiting organization TopGrading Solutions is pleased to announce its new brand: LifeWork Search. This change comes as the Supply Chain Planning industry races into a period of seismic growth. The new identity is also reflective of changing economic conditions and social demands, and is meant to be indicative of the core philosophy of the firm: A balance between life and work creates happier employees, who in turn build more competitive and profitable companies with less turnover and turbulence.

Jason Breault, Managing Director, started the Supply Chain Planning Division back in 2006. “As we enter a well-deserved period of economic recovery, the landscape is vastly different than it was a few years ago,” Breault says. “For many companies, demands for supply chain professionals have never been greater.  You’d be surprised to learn how many companies were caught off guard by the recession.  Those without a strong forecasting process in place were hit the hardest and are now in a state of urgency to build up demand planning teams.  Against this backdrop, is a new generation of talent entering the job market, and companies are struggling with the resulting management challenges. I strongly believe that to remain competitive companies must be more proactive in their recruiting and retaining efforts.”

TopGrading Solutions’ Payments Division also becomes part of the LifeWork brand. This comes on the heels of the promotion of Larry Lebofsky who heads up the Florida office and leads the overall vision and operations of the Payments and Retail Technology Practices.

“The name change symbolizes the core philosophy we bring into every client or recruiting conversation,” Larry Lebofsky says. “Companies that burn out their employees face attrition, absenteeism, and retention problems that ultimately lead to trained talent jumping ship to rival companies. This wastes companies’ time and money and has the unintended consequence of strengthening their competition. The lack of science within the hiring process results in poor chemistry within teams and between departments, which leads to missed deliverables, lost sales and finger-pointing. We believe Life and Work must be brought into balance and when that happens, employees, and their employers, will excel. We have such deep relationships, we know the talent so well, that we can help our clients hand-pick team configurations that create benefits far beyond what is expected when a company creates a job description.”

“At the end of the day, bottom line, it’s about results,” says Larry Breault, who founded the company 30 years ago and has helped numerous small technology firms become today’s industry giants. “If we help candidates achieve better lives through better careers, our clients will prosper beyond what they can even imagine. This new name and the philosophy behind it simply articulate what we’ve been doing all along, in a context that truly resonates today.” Larry Breault continues as an advisor to LifeWork Search and is an active leader in numerous charitable organizations.

This modern approach to the search and placement business, and the people, who are making this happen, can be reviewed at the new website at www.lifeworksearch.com. The launch of the new brand and website occurs simultaneously with the new Facebook page, LinkedIn group and Twitter feed, all of which may be accessed through the website.
