The CPA and business advisory firm Simon Lever celebrated an impressive milestone in 2021—70 years of serving the Lancaster community! When the company’s namesake opened his office on South Queen Street in 1951, the average cost of a new home was $9,000, and the average annual salary was $3,510. Clearly, a lot has changed since then, but one thing has remained constant—Simon Lever’s commitment to maximizing the success of those they partner with.

When it comes to providing excellent temporary workers, TriStarr knows how to get the job done. TriStarr teamed up with long-time client Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health and Rock Lititz to create a Community Vaccination Center (CVC) in an empty department store at Park City Mall. When TriStarr first received the request for staffing in February 2021, they felt confident they could quickly meet the hiring needs. The initial proposal of 100 positions might be higher than usual, and it might be a pandemic, but they had done it before. Little did they know that the community’s needs would grow, and they would hire more than ten times that amount.
