“Applicant-centric.” It’s hard to believe now, nearly three decades later, but when I started Atrium, the idea of centering the business on doing what was best for our people was an out-of-the-box idea. Yet, it felt right! My passion for building connections between people was the inspiration that made me embrace this industry. Over the years, as we expanded our wings, applicant-centric evolved into people-centric — and it’s still the beating heart of what drives us today.  

From the very beginning, I believed a dynamic, uplifting, and rich employee experience should not be limited to full-time employees. I knew instinctively that there was more to be gained by creating an inclusive culture. Today, after more than 28 years in this industry, I’m honored to champion this vision on a global scale.  

Atrium’s Beginnings 

Blame my rose-colored glasses, but the early days of Atrium have a special place in my heart. In many ways, our scrappy team of four, crammed into a tiny office above Grand Central Station, embodied the same traits that make Atrium special today. Our team has always been committed to delivering groundbreaking solutions for our clients and candidates, challenging ourselves to reach new heights, and above all else put people first. These are the principles that have grown this company to what we are today: a full-service workforce program solutions and total talent management partner on an international scale.  

Growth & Diversification 

In the last few years, Atrium has invested heavily in the expansion of our business. Our growth mindset has allowed us to reach into new markets, broaden our talent community, and diversify our solutions through our global acquisition strategy. From expanding our global footprint and launching to unveiling the latest version of our proprietary IC Compliance evaluation technology, Engagent 2.0 and bolstering our EOR payrolling solutions in Canada, our team has been hard at work making workforce management easier for our clients. It’s been a fascinating journey: a blend of challenges, anticipation, and powerful moments that have demanded vulnerability and resilience.  

And it has all been worth it! Like a gardener carefully nurturing seedlings, we’re now seeing the fruits of our labor. Our ability to adapt and grow with our clients in this constantly evolving global business environment has never been stronger. As we look to the future, I am thrilled to see these investments flourish and expand even further!  

People First 

I’ve said it hundreds of times, “You’re only as good as those around you.” I’m reminded of these words at this moment because none of this would have been possible without my team at Atrium and their commitment to growth today and into the future. Their passion, drive, and desire to always do better are part of our DNA that has been with Atrium since the very beginning.  

Our Talent Solutions division constantly pushes the boundaries, delivers innovative solutions to new markets, and exceeds our goals. The AtriumWORKS team is paving the way for future-ready workforce management solutions, always staying ahead of the technology curve. And I’d be remiss not to mention our operations team, which works tirelessly to ensure that every aspect of our organization runs smoothly while creating an inspiring work environment. Working alongside such a vibrant and dynamic group, and seeing them challenge one another to reach new heights, is an honor.  

The Workforce of Tomorrow 

In the past 28 years, we’ve achieved so much together — but we aren’t done yet! As part of our long-term commitment to helping candidates and clients succeed now and in the future, our team is dedicated to nurturing the investments we’ve made. As the use of the Extended Workforce becomes increasingly important for companies across the globe, we’re committed to introducing new solutions, including Total Talent Management strategies that are flexible, data-driven, and custom-designed with international delivery capabilities. And through it all, we’ll continue to be driven by our Forward Together mission. Because at the end of the day, it’s about people — the candidates, clients, and employees here at Atrium who fuel our passion and drive us forward.
