Philip Page, Owner/Strategic-Partner
Coming from a career in Accounting and Finance, I have experienced and understand the true costs of hiring and turnover. I have learned that turnover is more than a function of pay; it is directly tied to employee happiness, job fit and culture. An individual who is the right fit for the job is more productive, augmenting an employer's workforce for the better – and everyone wins.
Throughout my career, I have been recruited by executive placements firms. As an executive, I have relied on staffing agencies in times of need. Having worked with firms on both sides of the employment equation, I understand the value our services provide to employers and job seekers.
The Big Picture:
I chose to partner with PrideStaff because I felt their values were congruent with my own. PrideStaff’s mission is to “Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most.” We use this guiding principle every day with our clients, tailoring our approach to match employers with the top talent they desire. Our service and commitment to clients is paramount to our success.
Being a Strategic-Partner with PrideStaff allows me to provide our clients with the resources of a large national agency and the personal feel of a local agency. As a local business, we live and work in the same climate you do, so we truly understand your needs. As a PrideStaff partner, we can go even further because we have the support of a national firm backing us.
The Scoop on Staffing:
Jacksonville is a booming market. By combining flexible access to the right talent with our experience and passion for staffing, we make it easier for small businesses to capitalize on the significant growth opportunities in our area.
Our focus is talent-centric as well. A happy employee is a productive employee, but for this to happen the fit must be right. We listen to the needs of all our talent and strive to put them in positions where they will excel and thrive.
Secrets to Success:
I think the soccer legend Pele said it best:
“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do”
I have a passion for helping people succeed and realize their potential. Staffing allows me to help small business owners reach their goals, while also helping great people find jobs they love.
I enjoy spending time with family and friends. Jacksonville has many great outdoor activities to take advantage of; fishing, golfing and kayaking are some of the activities I find relaxing.
If it’s too hot outside (or raining), I enjoy trying all the new culinary and microbrewery experiences opening here every day. During football season, I support the Jacksonville Jaguars (albeit this may add to my stress) and the Florida Gators; you can often find me at their home games.
I like to work hard and play harder. Life is too short not to enjoy it.
