Regardless, 2015 is set to break history when it comes to hiring. 36 percent of managers plan to increase their full-time head count this year, up from 24 percent last year, according to CareerBuilder. Only 9 percent of businesses expect to decrease their staff levels, down from 13 percent in 2014. 

With all of the 2015 hiring buzz being spread around the nation, we thought it was necessary to interview a few of our customers and ask what their plans are for the new year. What roles are they planning on hiring for? Why do they love running a business in the Windy City?

Erin Wasson, VP of Marketing at UrbanBound, Chris Gallagher, Co-Founder of Green Office Partner, and Rob Halverson, CEO of Alphagraphics participated in the video and provided an abundance of knowledge that will help and prepare you for the busy year. 

So, sit back, relax, and educate yourself on how to make 2015 your most successful year yet.
