The Arnold Group (TAG) has been serving Kansas since 1979 — that's over 35 years of providing the standard for excellence in customer service in our industry! What started as one office in a franchise, has grown to an independent company with six branches and countless years of experience.
Here at TAG, we strive to help you be your best and we can't wait to do that for another 35 years. Thank you to our customers, our clients, and everyone who has supported us throughout the years; we wouldn't be here today without you.
The Arnold Group (TAG), owned by George and Marion Arnold, opened its first office in Wichita, Kansas in 1979. Later we expanded to include offices in: Emporia, Hutchinson, Manhattan, Salina and Winfield, Kansas.
After 20 years spent working for large corporations including 15 years in a nation-wide staffing agency, George desired to strike out on his own. He opened a small temporary staffing office in Wichita, Kansas and found success using his experience, entrepreneurial spirit and principle beliefs – “put the customer first and develop long-term relationships with them.”
Through the years, The Arnold Group’s senior management team has encountered first-hand, the evolution of this unique industry: from a solitary service to a diverse provider of workforce solutions.
The human resource industry is a constantly changing force, and to stay abreast of market opportunities, The Arnold Group has assessed areas of concentration where we may grow and expand. In 2000, The Arnold Group expanded their service offerings in a journey to become a comprehensive human resource company offering executive search and placement services, testing and evaluation solutions, employee developmental training and HR consulting services in addition to supplemental staffing services.
While The Arnold Group has been a strong advocate of the benefits of technology, we realize the importance of maintaining a personal touch with clients and associates. TAG capitalizes on technology’s ability to perform advanced searching to uncover the right talent, but spends time with each of its candidates to be sure the personality will mesh well within the clients’ corporate culture. With clients, care is taken to establish relationships for understanding their business, discovering needs and presenting strategic HR solutions.
By putting the customer first and developing long-term relationships with them, TAG differentiates itself from the large nationals by valuing quality over quantity. The Arnold Group maintains quality and resists the pressure of reducing rates to boost business. Precision is executed by building strong relationships and assessing client and candidate needs to ensure the right placements are made the first time, rather than simply working to fill an order.
George and Marion Arnold established this company with the sole purpose of providing quality human resource solutions to the Wichita business community.
Commitment to that purpose, along with significant investments in people and technology, has made our company one of the largest and most successful human resource firms, not only in Wichita, but throughout the state of Kansas. We have built a solid reputation on superior service, commitment to our customers and respect for our associates. Our mission and vision is fixed on continuing to honor those very tradition.
The mission of TAG is to be the innovative leader of comprehensive human resource solutions.
The vision of TAG is to be the #1 Human Resource solution for clients and associates based on our five core principles…
With more than forty (40) combined years of experience in the human resource and staffing industry, Jill A. Staats, President and Phillip M. Hayes, SPHR, VP, HR Services and Operations continue to apply George’s basic principles in guiding The Arnold Group’s current success.
