President and CEO of MSDSonline, Glenn Trout, said, “Our consistent growth through the rocky economic climate is a testament to the strength of our solutions and the talents of our employees. I think we do a great job hiring customer- centric people and giving them the tools and training they need to serve our customers and tell our story. And, we’re based in Chicago which clearly helps.”
Recruiting Manager at MSDSonline, Natalie Lynch, also credits downtown Chicago as a big advantage. “Being a Chicago-based technology business gives us a talented pool of workers to draw from. Regardless of the position we’re looking to fill, IT, sales, customer service, product development – Chicago attracts the best talent from around the Midwest and is within driving distance of many of the best colleges and universities in the country.”
Looking ahead, Trout believes recent revisions to OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) will keep MSDSonline on pace to continue its growth, including adding new hires, for the next several years. Under the revised HCS, chemical manufacturers, distributors, and users will see increasing responsibilities around their chemical and MSDS management compliance activities; compliance activities for which MSDSonline is a leading solutions provider.
