Professional Services Organization Finds Opportunity in Flood Devastation

Skywalk Group Expands to First Floor Office Space

Many returning businesses have avoided first floor office space in downtown Cedar Rapids. Skywalk Group has done just the opposite. On August 6th at 4:00 pm, Skywalk Group will celebrate its oneâ__year company anniversary and ribbon cutting at its expanded first floor location in downtown Cedar Rapids.

Skywalk Group is a professional services organization that specializes in human resources management, recruiting, IT contract staffing, and training & development. Originally located on the 2nd floor of the Dows Building, the company
opted to move to an expanded first floor space-by combining two storeâ__fronts--following the flood. Skywalk Group Partner, Lydia Brown, says, "Due to early company success amidst the flood chaos, we decided to position ourselves for future growth and combine two available locations on the first floor."

Partner, Tim Sieck, adds, "Our new space not only allows us to grow as a company but also includes a stateâ__ofâ__theâ__art training & development room. We offer public workshops on a variety of topics on a regular basis. The room is also available for rent when organizations need a comfortable offâ__site meeting room space."

As a small, womanâ__owned business, Skywalk Group has added 3 fullâ__time and 2 partâ__time positions over the last year. The company can play a small or large role in their business partner's organizations. As a result of their flexibility and experience, the company is thriving even in a down economy. Partner, Elizabeth Trcka, says, "We listened to what our customers and the market were telling us. As a result, we added the IT contract recruiting competency through a strategic hire. This decision has provided immediate results."

Based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Skywalk Group is best known for its ability to seamlessly provide costâ__effective human resources strategy and support that impacts the bottom line for their business partners.
