As part of Orchard Supply Hardware’s expansion into the Oregon market, the team spent time last week hosting a hiring event at the Oregon Zoo. The goal was to find 160 talented Oregonians to staff Orchard’s two new stores in Portland and Tigard. Recognizing a good story, the LANE team reached out to regional broadcast and print outlets to make sure the word got out about the hiring event.
