People Plus Inc. Names Employee of the Year in Honor of National Staffing Employee Week

Lexington, Ky. (9/26/13) – People Plus, Inc. of Lexington named Liz Columbia People Plus, Inc. Staffing Employee of the Year Thursday. Liz represents the 2.91 million people employed by staffing firms every business day. There are 11.5 million temporary and contract employees hired by U.S. Staffing firms over the course of a year, according to the American Staffing Association. Additionally, in Kentucky alone, the number of jobs through temporary agencies has increased 40% from 2010 to 2013.

Liz Columbia has worked for the past year for CMI Consulting as an Administrative Assistant. Her supervisor and CMI President, Beverly Clemons, nominated Liz for her professionalism and outstanding work ethic. Clemons stated that Liz is “a phenomenal employee.”

People Plus joined staffing companies across the country in celebrating National Staffing Employee Week, Sept. 16–22, established by the American Staffing Association to pay tribute to the millions of Americans who are employed by staffing firms every business day.

“National Staffing Employee Week is a salute to the important and talented temporary and contract employees who make vital contributions to the nation’s work force and economy,” said Amanda Huddleston, Vice-President of People Plus, Inc.

Businesses tap staffing companies for quality talent in virtually all occupational sectors, from call center service representatives to skilled tradesmen to attorneys, according to ASA. ASA also reports that 79 percent of temporary and contract employees work full-time (35 hours or more per week), virtually the same as the rest of the work force.

And for those who are seeking their first job, re-entering the work force, or looking for something new, temporary and contract employment offers many benefits:

  • Jobs:      The staffing industry matches millions of people to millions of jobs every      day; 2.91million temporary and contract employees work through U.S.      staffing firms on an average business day.
  • Flexibility:      Employees can choose when, where, and how they want to work. Companies can      get the skills they need to keep fully staffed during busy times.
  • Bridge:      Temporary and contract work provides a bridge to permanent employment. People      can try out a prospective employer and showcase their skills for a      permanent job.
  • Choice:      Many people choose temporary and contract work as a preferred employment      option. They can select their work schedules and choose among a variety of      diverse and challenging assignments.
  • Training:      The staffing industry provides free training for millions of temporary and      contract employees to help meet today’s demand for skilled workers.

“We’re proud to be involved in an industry that provides so many benefits to employees, to businesses, and to America’s economy,” said Huddleston.

Great Employees and Pirates

September 19th, 2013

Great Employees are very much like pirates….

Great employees are loyal.  They are always “on board” for work. They don’t mind doing the dirty jobs if it means the company lands the Booty.

jolly rogerBlimey! When surprises interrupt the normal routines, a great employee can batten down the hatches to get the work done when its needed. Great employees know how to heave ho, or push through a difficult task to accomplish the mission.

So if you are a great employee and feeling like your job search is lost in Davy Jones’ Locker, weigh anchor and join our crew. Savvy?
