John Chandler, Owner/Strategic Partner
Relevant Experience: Working with many different kinds of people in business and as a licensed counselor, taught me to actively listen to the needs of clients and professionals. This experience laid the groundwork for my move into the staffing industry where I can create opportunities that are a perfect fit for each of them.
In my career I have been heavily involved with program development, training, quality improvement and work process implementation. I have collaborated with healthcare providers to assess, diagnose and coordinate the care of individual patients.
All of which has prepared me to work effectively with a wide range of corporate clients as well as healthcare, government and non-profit companies.
As Strategic-Partner/Owner of the PrideStaff Birmingham South office, my key focus is to build a trusting, open business relationship with the clients we serve.
The Big Picture: The PrideStaff mission, “Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most.” was evident from day one!
Developing a long-term relationship with our clients is vital in understanding what they consider most important and offering solutions to help them make positive changes, improve processes and grow their bottom line.
We are a locally owned business with a laser focus on the markets we serve. Our dedication to our clients and employees, combined with PrideStaff’s national exposure and resources, positions us to exceed our customers’ expectations.
The Scoop on Staffing: Market uncertainty and changes in total direct payroll costs have made many companies reluctant to hire full-time employees.
The PrideStaff staffing solution allows our clients to grow, complete a project or serve a specific need without the cost of hiring full-time employees. We help our clients to succeed by providing quality associates that are prepared, willing and able to do the job at hand.
Secrets to Success: The key to success for PrideStaff and for our clients is the quality of applicants we provide. Once candidates meet our criteria we are committed to placing them with the right client, in the right position, at the right time.
Attitude is everything. Our staff’s passion and positive attitude about serving our clients and associates ensures their positive contribution to the Birmingham business community.
Favorite Stress Reliever: I focus on what is most important in life—my faith and church community, spending quality time with family and friends, in addition to keeping myself healthy by exercising and enjoying the outdoors. I love to fish (Even better when I catch them!!!) and travel – I never turn down a trip to the beach! Most importantly, I take time to laugh and enjoy life…it goes by fast.
