Go Ye Employment Services is a family owned company that was founded by my father, Gerald (Jerry) E. Crawford, on January 1, 2000. I like to joke that “while everyone else was getting ready for Y2K my dad was busy starting a business.” Starting Go Ye in the midst of uncertainty was a step of faith, to say the least. Jerry was working with an organization at the time, Warriors for the Lord, helping men with crises situations find the strength and resources to rebuild their lives. One thing he quickly noticed was that they all had an incredibly hard time finding work, which is still currently true of many in the same situation today. But instead of give up on what seemed to be a hopeless opportunity, he pursued a business and mission that could help these men gain employment and regain their lives.
Go Ye has come a long ways since our founding in January of 2000 but our core mission has remained the same. We still take great pride in helping individuals overcome barriers to employment and we heavily invest our time, energy, and resources into programs that benefit our candidates and job seekers across the area; but we have expanded our services. Go Ye has become a robust staffing firm that has continually evolved with the demands of our industry to provide top-of-the-line staffing and recruiting services alongside our innovative training and workforce development programs. Over the last 18 years Go Ye has become a staple in our community while continuing to operate as a beacon of hope for so many, I am eager to see what is in store for us over the next 18 years.
