Marcelo Valdivieso, Owner/Strategic-Partner
I have over thirty years of business experience, most recently as a multi-business-unit, global procurement executive for the automotive and aerospace manufacturing industry. Working in procurement for the bulk of my career, among my many procurement commodities I owned responsibility for buying and managing contingent labor, using staffing strategically to flex our workforce while controlling overhead. My experience as an executive and staffing customer have afforded me a unique perspective on how staffing and hiring can directly impact corporate performance.
The Big Picture:
As an organization that truly lives out our mission statement, "Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most," PrideStaff's core values, culture and focus on building strong business relationships fuel success for all parties in the employment equation.
PrideStaff's service starts with a deep-seated commitment to ensuring our actions deliver real value for employers and job seekers. By treating every company as our own and every placement as our own, we create great results for those we serve – and a sustainable competitive advantage in our marketplace.
The Scoop on Staffing:
Massive post-Great Recession restructuring radically changed the ways businesses use staffing services. Prior to the Great Recession, employers typically used contingent staff to expand or contract their workforce. In today's business environment, however, businesses today not only rely on increased temp staffing, but rely on us for a full complement of essential HR, hiring and staffing functions. Our national resources and proven processes enable us to create exceptional matches, quickly and cost-effectively, while ensuring safety and compliance.
Job seekers partner with PrideStaff to rapidly access assignments and positions that match their experience and needs, skills and personality. Temporary-to-hire opportunities are particularly attractive to millennial workers, allowing associates to build new job skills while gauging their culture fit within an organization.
Secrets to Success:
I attribute my success to:
- discipline, strategic planning and execution;
- treating everyone as a customer and delivering the results they expect;
- respecting everyone at all levels and from all walks of life.
When I'm not at work, I like spending time with my family and friends. I have a very large, extended family (over 25 people), so there's always a gathering or celebration to attend. I also enjoy spending time outdoors, cycling or taking walks in nature.
