Ann Gilbert, Strategic-Partner
Experience: Over 13 years of experience in the staffing industry, has provided me with the opportunity to learn what is important to our clients and associates. I have learned that the best way to be successful is to listen to my clients. I learn more about not only the hard skills necessary to do the job but what the company culture looks like in order to find the right “fit” for each client. As a business owner, I understand how important it is to stay on budget and be profitable; it is my goal to assist my clients in doing the same with their business. My experience in working with several different industries and assisting them in developing processes to find the right candidates, allows me the ability to share those experiences with other clients. I know that each day, through various client and candidate interactions, I will continue to learn and grow as a person and a professional.
The big picture: Why PrideStaff? Like your company, PrideStaff’s focus is to provide exceptional service. We keep high standards, focusing on developing business relationships with both our employees and our client companies. At PrideStaff, we partner with our clients to learn what they value most; making their lives easier, reducing their overall cost and eliminating their risk. Local management with national support gives us the flexibility you need with the financial stability of a large national organization. We stay on top of the ever changing world of employment law in order to ensure that our clients are also prepared for what may lie ahead. Our recruiting department is able to customize its efforts to gain valuable referrals from long-cultivated resources; our skills assessment and screening program is state-of-the-art.
The scoop on staffing: Most importantly, we at PrideStaff take the time to find out about each applicant personally and what is important to him or her by making a personal connection. PrideStaff doesn’t attempt to plug round pegs in square holes. PrideStaff is a personal service dedicated to finding the right opportunity for each applicant. This allows us to “make a difference” in people’s lives.
We make a difference for our client companies as well. One of the main differentiators for PrideStaff is that we know that employees tend to succeed or fail at a company today not solely based on their skills. That observation isn’t difficult to assess. One of the greatest drivers of turnover is ignoring the “Fit-In Factor” at a company. Is the person going to match the corporate “culture” that your company has surely worked hard to create? PrideStaff is dedicated to making the right placement happen, not just filling an order.
Secrets to success: Staying focused, disciplined, working a daily plan and having a great sense of humor.
Stress relief: Spending time with my family.
