CHAMPAIGN - A local staffing firm earned a top company award in February.
Express Employment Professionals of Champaign and Danville, owned by Richard and wife Lynn Yoerk, received the Board of Directors award at the company's annual International Leadership Conference.
The award is for excellence in leadership and business advocacy. The Yoerks were one of two franchisees to receive the honor, among a total of 619 franchisees.
Yoerk says between their two local firms, they pay nearly 500 associates each month.
