Comments Michael E. Smith, TALX senior vice president of market

new facility at West Port Place. With this move, TALX strengthens its
commitment to the St. Louis area as we operate from four facilities in
the Westport area. This is largely a 'functional move,' designed to
allow us to continue providing optimal service to our clients
throughout the U.S.
"The move also reflects our significant employee growth, key
acquisitions and the expansion of TALX services that support our
clients' payroll and human resource information needs. The new
building will centralize our corporate services and many of our client
services professionals as well. The move also enables us to maximize
the use of our other Westport area facilities which are specifically
designed to accommodate essential components of our service delivery,
including data management, professional sales team, product
development and a state-of-the-art call center. St. Louis continues to
provide a winning environment for TALX, and we are delighted to be a
part of this growing business community."
