For Immediate Release

​Staffing Industry Veteran and MSP Thought Leader Steve Dern to Spearhead New Offering

East Brunswick, New Jersey: Staffing the Universe (STU), a woman-owned, pioneering, and industry recognized family of staffing companies, is proud to announce the launch of Evaluent Talent Solutions, a groundbreaking and robust managed services program (MSP) targeting the underserved needs of smaller and mid-market businesses that are seeking comprehensive yet cost-efficient contingent workforce solutions for staffing supplier management, worker fulfillment, payrolling, independent contractor compliance and engagement, direct sourcing, and more. Formerly a model that providers made available primarily to enterprise clients, companies of all sizes can now reap the benefits of an end-to-end MSP without satisfying spend thresholds beyond their scope or reach.

Steve Dern has joined the organization to spearhead the roll out, thought leadership, and ongoing evolution of Evaluent Talent Solutions. Mr. Dern is an industry veteran and subject matter expert who brings 25 years of staffing, MSP, VMS, and talent management expertise to the organization. He has served in both operations leadership and business development roles with companies such as Guidant Global, IQN, GRI, and Coupa. Steve has also provided mentorship to numerous staffing organizations. He will serve as Executive Vice President of Talent Solutions for Evaluent.

“Dating back to my MSP operations days, I have had the opportunity to utilize Staffing the Universe as a staffing and payrolling partner for over 15 years. During that time, I came to recognize that there is a unique commitment to service delivery for both clients and contingent workers, and in being a strategic partner and thought leader for clients at the enterprise and MSP level alike. When I learned that there was interest in launching a solutions division such as Evaluent, it was an easy decision for me to join this leadership team to build out this solutions organization. We have a history and credibility in the industry that many firms who are targeting mid-market talent solutions just don’t possess.”

Linda Block, CEO of Staffing the Universe, is excited about the launch of the new Evaluent division: “We have a deep history in this industry, and as time has gone on, our clients have inquired about ways we can expand our solutions offerings. Evaluent represents the culmination of our success, and Steve is just the person to lead us through this evolution. He is a recognized leader in the space and understands the importance of a balanced and innovative talent ecosystem that delivers value for all stakeholders – clients, suppliers, workers, and suppliers. We are thrilled to have him join our leadership team, and know that with our history of service delivery and Steve’s experience, we can deliver.”
