Chris Adams EOY People Plus Inc. Names Employee of the Year in Honor of National Staffing Employee Week Louisville, Ky. (10/01/2014) – People Plus, Incorporated named Chris Adams the People Plus, Inc. Staffing Employee of the Year today. Chris represents the 3 million people employed by staffing firms every week. There are 11 million temporary and contract employees hired by U.S. Staffing firms over the course of a year, according to the American Staffing Association.

Chris Adams has worked for the past year for Sodexo at Our Lady of Peace Hospital. His supervisor Jeffrey Sea, General Manager, Food & Nutritional Services, nominated Chris for his poise and professionalism, which has exceeded expectations. In the nine months he has been with Sodexo, he has learned six different jobs. Sea went on to say: “Each time we asked him to take on new tasks he did so with both a smile and a determination to succeed.  On more occasions than I would like to admit, during short staffing or due to illness, Chris was asked to work on both off days and also on very short notice – each time he accepted the challenge with the same drive and determination he is known for…he is the reason I enjoy my job and he gives me hope that we can succeed.  If only I had ten more Chris’s in my unit – If only.”

People Plus joined staffing companies across the country in celebrating National Staffing Employee Week, Sept. 15–19, 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; 2.91 million 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.
