Our Story

Staffing, like many industries is highly competitive. If you are taking the leap to open a new “brand” you better have experienced staff behind you, a lot of faith and a community in which to succeed. As a new small business, we knew we wanted to open our doors in Cabarrus County and invest in the surrounding communities.

Partners and former colleagues Tom Gibson, Tanya Bennett and Robin Gibson established Gibson Group Consulting in October 2012, changing its name to DecisionPathHR in March of 2013. There are over 70 years of staffing experience combined under the three owners and a good story of how the three paths crossed! Tom and Tanya began working together in 1989 for a national staffing firm in North Carolina.

Tanya headed to Houston,TX to work for the corporate office in 1998 and met Robin, who was part of the same department, later that year. Robin began her staffing career in 1992 in Atlanta, GA moving to Houston in 1996 and then to North Carolina in 1999. Tanya ultimately moved back to North Carolina and in 2011 the planning began for the inception of DecisionPathHR. The goal was to create a staffing firm with integrity, to embrace technology and incorporate the face-to-face, interpersonal contact with not only clients but temporary associates as well.

The DecisionPathHR leadership team offers over 70 years of combined experience in the staffing industry with longstanding ties and contributions to the local community.

  • "When we first opened DecisionPathHR, I was back to working a desk: interviewing candidates, conducting orientations and filling orders. As I was interviewing a candidate, she looked like she was about to cry. I asked her what was wrong and she replied, “You’re the first person I’ve met at a staffing company that actually looks me in the eye when you’re talking to me. Most companies treat me like I’m a number.” This solidified, for me, our decision to make sure our customer service is not limited just to our clients; we treat our associate employees with the same respect, dignity and care that we treat our client customers".
    Tanya Bennett, Chief Operating Officer
  • “We opened our company to provide a level of customer service that we just weren’t seeing in our industry. At DecisionPathHR we embrace technology but with the personal touch. The face-to-face contact, in-depth needs assessment and the building of long lasting relationships with our clients is what sets us apart from our competitors. We are humbled and honored to be recognized for our Company’s efforts in this way.”
    Tom Gibson, President, CEO
  • “We are in the “people” business. Our recruiters, sales and marketing efforts are constantly being challenged to be current or ahead of the game. What we have found to be most creative and effective is Getting Back to Basics. Treat co-workers, temporary associates and clients with equal respect. Send a hand written note rather than an email. Pick up the phone instead of texting. Make a personal visit. Follow up, follow up, follow up.”
    Robin Gibson, Vice President Operations
