In 1982, Joe Leddy founded Work Opportunities Unlimited (WOU), a company that provides customized employment opportunities for people of varying backgrounds and skill sets who may benefit from community-based work experiences. WOU contracts with a variety of schools as well as state, local health, human service, and vocational agencies in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maryland and Florida.
In 1994, Joe and his team discovered a need for quality oriented staffing services, and started Leddy Group as a division of Work Opportunities Unlimited. Leddy Group’s initial focus was to provide skilled staffing for the light industrial market. The company was quickly recognized for its ability to match qualified candidates to each client’s unique needs and the opportunity to expand staffing efforts to the office environment became apparent. In 1995, Leddy Group added front office, accounting and human resource staffing to its placement services.
Leddy Group partnered with FPL Services in 2000 to provide human resource, strategic planning and organizational consulting services. The addition of these services has allowed Leddy Group to provide small and mid-sized clients with resources and solutions to enhance its productivity and overall success.
Since its inception, Leddy Group has maintained a focus on quality and, as a result, has expanded to five locations throughout New England. By providing customized solutions, Leddy Group continually strives to be the preferred provider of staffing and human resource consulting services.
