Daan Renssen, Owner/Strategic-Partner
Nieke Renssen, Owner/Strategic-Partner
Three years after launching their award-winning Thousand Oaks location, Owners/Strategic-Partners Daan and Nieke Renssen have opened a second PrideStaff office to serve Ventura County. They combine their leadership, recruiting and global business experience with a commitment to serving employers and job seekers, in order to make a real difference in their local community.
Here is a bit about their backgrounds prior to joining the PrideStaff organization:
I was born in Africa, but I spent a good deal of time in the Netherlands and earned my Master of Science degree there. After graduating, I worked on international assignments in a variety of settings, with diverse people from different backgrounds and cultures. As a marketing, sales and management professional, I have seen firsthand the importance of hiring the right people to develop strong teams.
I grew up in Malaysia and earned my Master of Science degree in the Netherlands. After graduating, I led global marketing and business development efforts for Philips Electronics, and then launched and ran my own business. These experiences have taught me the importance of being flexible in relating to people from diverse cultures. We love the Thousand Oaks area and enjoy running a successful organization that contributes to its growth.
The Big Picture:
At PrideStaff, we have the resources and expertise of a large, national firm and the level of service you would expect from a locally owned business. Our first step is to meet with our clients to gain a clear understanding of what each values most. From there, we offer a personalized plan to solve key business challenges.
We take a similar approach with our candidates. Talent is the driving force of our business, and we take specific steps to make sure we provide our candidates with the proper support and training needed to be successful. We start with one-on-one interviews to determine skills, experience, goals and interests. During that interview we discuss what they value most as an employee.
As a locally owned business, we are committed to serving our community by building meaningful employment connections in areas such as Oxnard, Ventura, Camarillo and all of Ventura County. This provides our clients and associates with quick decision-making and flexible solutions. The result is a faster hiring and employment process so new talent can begin making a difference quickly.
The Scoop on Staffing:
To more quickly adapt to changing consumer demands and growing competition, companies in our area are embracing a new workforce model and transitioning to a more flexible workforce. At PrideStaff, we help companies develop strategic staffing solutions that support growth and new business initiatives while limiting employment risk and exposure.
From entry-level to executive experience in administrative and manufacturing sectors, we help companies find the talent they need to grow. Whether on a temporary, temporary-to-hire or direct-hire basis, our flexible employment options help solve clients' biggest workforce challenges.
Secrets to Success:
We continually look to learn something new from every individual we meet and every challenge we face. We enjoy tackling difficult problems from a new angle to help find the best possible solution.
Through our experience we have learned that success stems from:
Flexibility – creating customized and personalized solutions.
Dependability – doing what we say and saying what we do.
Honesty – setting realistic expectations and being forthright about our ability to help.
We love to travel and experience new things. We enjoy spending time outdoors, and our passions include hiking with our two Rhodesian Ridgebacks, mountain biking, yoga, spending time on the beach and being active.
We love having a good dinner with family and friends, "European style" (which means a few hours of great conversation – and no cell phones). And with three growing teenagers (one of whom is traveling the world before entering college), we cherish our evolving role as parents.
As one of the leading employment and staffing agencies in Ventura County and surrounding areas, we have developed an entire website dedicated to the Ventura County area (click on one of the links below for more information):
