Anna Santucci-Braun, owner of the Express Employment Professionals franchise in Howell, is delighted that her vision to enhance the experience for jobseekers, her team and he business clients has been realized.

She proudly describes the initial and lasting reaction of anyone stepping through the doorway. “When visitors walk into the bright reception area, their attention is immediately drawn to the oversized aquarium filled with calmly swimming, colorful fish.” The tank serves as a natural privacy “wall” between the reception, onboarding, and interviewing areas.

Anna continues, “the transformation from what was once a long narrow, somewhat dark space, is remarkable, and the tranquility that counters the normal jobseeker jitters is palpable.
