Menomonee Falls, WI, June 2, 2017 — TRICOM, headquartered in Menomonee Falls, WI, was honored to receive the Eagle Award from the American Legion Post 416 in Greenfield, WI.

Did you know that over 1 in 4 companies face a chance of having a material data breach in the next two years? Ponemon Institute confirmed this in their study sponsored by IBM. Did you also know that 47% of firms learn about of a breach to their personal information (PI) from a notification by an external party?

We often get asked for recommendations for other staffing industry service providers, as we have met many others throughout our decades in the industry. We’re careful to only recommend companies who share TRICOM’s same business values: integrity, a focus on clients and their best interests, and a superior product or service offering.
