Who We Are
The company was established as a secretarial staffing agency and incorporated in 1967 as Secretarial Services Limited (SSL). At that time, SSL provided typing services through its large typing pool and targeted housewives who could not go out to work every day and students who wished to find temporary work during the holidays. Over time, SSL also offered permanent placement for job seekers. A training division was added, providing courses in business administration and computer skills.
In the early 1990s the staffing agency side of the business was sold. To reflect the changing business environment, the new owners agreed to operate under the trading name of The Business and Employment Centre. The company changed ownership in 2017 and continues to operate as The Business and Employment Centre to this day.
The company has grown to become a full-fledged staffing agency providing staffing, business services and customised training and development programmes. It is well established as the leading provider of temporary staffing in Barbados and also provides quality HR and business support services to small, medium and large organisations as well as to entrepreneurs and private individuals.
