Mee Derby was founded as Robin Mee and Company on December 15, 1988 and incorporated as Mee Derby and Company, Inc. on October 1, 1990. Robin Mee is the owner, president, and managing recruiter.
Mee Derby is one of a handful of companies in the United States that staff the staffing industry nationwide. According to the 2001 Staffing Industry Resource Guide, Mee Derby is one of the oldest and largest "Recruiters for Staffing" with nine employees between the Washington corporate headquarters and two regional offices.
There is much being written about the explosive growth of the staffing industry. According to Baird, a Northwestern Mutual Company, "Few industries can point to such an impressive history of growth - (staffing) industry payroll has increased 19% compounded annually over the past 20 years."
The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that temporary staffing will be the seventh fastest growing employment category in the U. S. in 1995-2005, increasing at a rate five times that of the general labor force.
Mee Derby's annual growth rate based on gross sales has exceeded 25% per year for the past ten years and is projected to increase dramatically in the years ahead as staff size grows and markets increase. The "Place & Search" segment of the staffing industry (the segment in which Mee Derby performs) is currently growing at 15% accordingly to Staffing Industry Report.
In late 1998 Mee Derby began a Human Resources Division, providing both search and contract services to non-staffing companies in the Mid-Atlantic. This division is the result of increased demand for information technology (IT) recruiters and Mee Derby's reputation for placing hard to find IT recruiters in staffing environments.
Mee Derby uses C-PAS, a Lotus Notes based industry specific software, for its candidate and client management. All job orlders are linked to the internet via http://jobs.meederby.com/cpas/netstaffer33.nsf/index using NetStaffer, a component of C-PAS by VGC Software.
