“To serve our customers better, we saw an opportunity to hire a new sales consultant, Michael Jacobs, to work in our Buckhead location,” said Peter Morrison, President of AVI. “We’re proud that this action will support Hire One Atlanta and the cause of employment in the city of Atlanta.”
Hire One Atlanta is a joint effort of Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, the City of Atlanta, the Atlanta Business Chronicle, and several local businesses. They are asking each of the 150,000 businesses in Atlanta to hire one person, rather than taking a wait-and-see attitude in the coming year. According to one analyst, a single new hire can increase U.S. Gross Domestic Product by an average of $100,000. It’s believed that hiring on a city-wide scale, even one employee at a time, can create an influx in spending and boost consumer confidence, in turn spurring a cycle of economic growth.
“For AVI, hiring Michael will be a win-win. We can be more responsive to customers’ needs, a top priority for our business. And in turn, any increase in sales will contribute to the growth of our community,” said Peter. “We’re pleased to be doing our part in assisting fellow Atlantans, as well as helping strengthen the economy.”
