YES Employee Spotlight | December 2017

YES Staffing Employees are the Best in Utah!

utah staffing employee spotlight

Thank You Seth Hopkin | YES December Employee Spotlight

Seth started working with YES this time last year and has been our On-Site HR Manager at our largest client in the Ogden area, if not with our entire company! Seth is a very reliable, fun loving, adventurist who has helped strengthen the team he works with. YES thanks you for all that you bring to our team, as well as our client's team.

We asked Seth to answer 11ish questions about work and life. Here’s what he had to say:

1. Five things you enjoy.
– Fly fishing
– Alaska
– Days off
– Volleyball
– Watching baseball games on summer nights

2. Three things you don't.
– Pens that don't work.
– Toilet paper coming of the roll the wrong way.
– Employees telling us they “didn't know” this, or that or the other thing or having phones that don't accept incoming calls…

3. What do you like most about working at YES?
The co-workers and leadership.

4. What do you think would make YES better?
A chiropractor/massage therapist on staff.

5. If you could meet anyone, who?
– Living: ????
– Dead: My grandfather.
– Fictional: Dwight Schrute

6. Your favorite place in the world.
The range ground my grandpa and great grandpa homesteaded in Morgan/Summit county. Or Prince William Sound.

7. On fishing:

(a) You're fishing on a stream by yourself and you suddenly run into Bigfoot… what do you do??
Keep fishing. Maybe pull out a cell phone between casts.

(b) Would you rather have the ability to remember everything but be a terrible fisherman or be the best fisherman ever but have short term memory loss where you forget things that happened the day before?
I'd be a good fisherman. I already forget lots of crap. Fortunately Chris Walker remembers everything (and sucks at fishing) that's why we are a good team.

(c) Your wife tells you that you can either go fishing or play Xbox, but not both, what would you pick and why?
Fishing. There are only certain times of the day and year that is an option and while Xbox is fun, it is never as relaxing as the river.

8. What is the number one challenge you face in your job?
Accepting that some things are out of my control. You can't make people show up or work hard. You can't stop people from making really terrible decision or walking off the job. You can't fix every problem or frustration. Unless your name is Jarum Stone.

9. What do you think is the best way to meet that challenge?
Communication and hard work. Open communication prevents a lot of frustration and tension. Hard work gives you piece of mind that you did everything you could control.

10. What would you tell someone looking into working with YES?
The culture and coworkers at YES are exceptional. You could search an entire career and not find another company comparable.

11.If you had to wrestle Nacho Libre, Reed Laws, and Kerry Westenskow… who would you win/KO/lose to?
I'm afraid I would lose to all three. I have T-rex arms and am really out of shape.

Thanks Seth! You are awesome!

YES Employee Spotlight | November 2017

YES Staffing Workers are the Best Utah Professionals!

This month YES would like to show gratitude for an employee who functions much like a glue between one of our main offices and our largest on-site office. This is a big shoutout to Kaitlyn Sterling!

utah staffing employee spotlight

Thank You Kaitlyn Sterling | YES November Employee Spotlight

Kaitlyn works closely with our Ogden office in preparing and training applicants for work at our largest on-site client facility, and then works closely with our On-Site Managers at that location to onboard all new hires appropriately. This particular client has numerous training, testing, and documentation requirements that are crucial to their business and legally required and Kaitlyn's organizational abilities, attention to detail, and excellent customer service has been crucial to our maintenance of that account.

We asked Kaitlyn to answer 11 questions about work and life. Here’s what she had to say:

1. Five things you enjoy.
1. Hanging out with my hubby and daughter.
2. Playing with my two pups.
3. Shopping for sure haha.
4. Traveling, I love going to places I have never been to before and I like revisiting cities I have visited and fell in love with.
5. The beach.

2. Three things you don't.
1. Spiders, so gross!
2. Peeps.
3. Sushi.

3. What do you like most about working at YES?
The environment and everyone I work with. It is a great work environment and everyone I work with is so awesome. Everyone is always smiling and so willing to help each other.

4. What do you think would make YES better?
Honestly nothing, YES is pretty awesome, but a soda fountain in the break room would be pretty legit.

5. If you could meet anyone, who?
Tom Brady.

6. Your favorite place in the world.
It’s a tie between Charleston SC and Preston MD, my hometown.

7. Would you rather go have a sideline pass to a Patriots game or a backstage pass to a Pentatonix concert?
Sideline pass to a Patriots game for sure! I love Pentatonix, but I have been a Patriots fan for far longer than I have been a Pentatonix fan.

8. What is the number one challenge you face in your job?
Putting the right person in the right job for themselves and for our client. Each department we work with is so different and the job duties vary a lot.

9. What do you think is the best way to meet that challenge?
Explaining each department as thorough as I can. I tell them the good, the bad and the ugly so they are set-up for success when they walk in for their first day of training. It’s hard to envision a job and what it entails while just looking through a window, so I try to explain as much as I can about the job, the environment and what is expected of them.

10. What would you tell someone looking into working with YES?
You are in good hands. We will find take the time to find the right job for them.

11. You, Reed, and Kerry have a crab opening contest. Who wins between the president of YES Reed Laws and YES' CFO Kerry Westenskow?
Haha! Neither of them will win because I will beat them both at that. BUT if I sit out of that competition and it’s down to just Reed and Kerry I will have to say Reed. Picking crabs gets pretty messy and Kerry is too much of a pretty boy for that, haha!

We're extremely grateful to have you on the team Kaitlyn! Thank you for all that you do!

Working for YES

Working for Your Employment Solutions is Filled With Opportunity

Many people may not know this, but I have experience working with another staffing agency. Since I arrived here at YES I can definitely see the difference from one employment agency to the other.

Overall, I’m grateful that they gave me the opportunity to follow this career. I can’t deny that the difference between YES and any other agencies is that Your Employment Solutions cares about their employees, every one of us is important. We are all treated with respect and for me that’s really important. One of the things that caught my attention is how organized everything is at YES. Everyone has a specific role in every department and that makes it easy to know who to contact if there is ever a problem or a question.

Working for YESEveryone Is Important

That is one of the things that I have admired since I got here as well as how YES has shown us how to value our co-workers and our employees that we talk to on daily basis. It’s beautiful when you see the trust our employees give to us. It makes you realize that you are doing a good job, it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside when someone is genuinely appreciative of the help you gave them.

Being a Well-Rounded Recruiter

For me being a well-rounded recruiter is not just filling the job orders we have, but looking for the RIGHT person for the job. It makes the employee feel confident that their skills are being put to good use and the client loves when we find the perfect candidate. It’s also about making sure the employee feels appreciated and respected by giving them a position they would love. When the employee feels appreciated, the more likely they’ll stay at the job we gave them.

Working at YES is the Best

I can’t complain, I am able to work in an office where everyone is mature, where you can feel the companionship, the teamwork, and where everyone works towards the same goals. No one is compared to each other so everyone is equal making it easy to find help anywhere. With a new job comes new responsibilities to learn and with that I have to admit that here at YES it has helped me a lot in my professional career.

To finish off, I just want to tell you that I’m really happy working for YES. I know that I work for a company where everyone has the opportunity to grow and where opportunities are always arising. I know I’m working for the best staffing agency there is in Utah.

Trabajar para YES

Trabajar para Your Employment Solutions está lleno de oportunidades

Como pasa el tiempo ya mi primer año con Your Employment Solutions, desde que empecé a trabajar para YES pude notar claramente la diferencia de lo que es una buena compañia de empleo, algo que me llamó la atencion es ver el valor y el respeto que YES le da a todos los empleados, aqui todo es organizado, y eso hace mucho mas facil el trabajo ya que sabemos a quien acudir si necesitamos de alguna ayuda.

trabajar para YESTodos Somos Importante

Esa es otra cosa que admiro de YES desde que empecé a trabajar aqui me han demostrado que todos somos importante que todos somos como una familia, YES me ha enseñado el valor que tienen mis compañeros de trabajo y lo importante que son todas las personas que ayudamos todos los dias. Es bonito saber cuando las personas depositan la confianza en mi, eso me hace sentir que estoy haciendo un buen trabajo, es un sentimiento muy bonito cuando alguien te da las gracias por lo que haces.

Ser Una Buena Reclutadora

Para mi no es solo llenar una orden, es buscar a la pesona correcta para cada posición, pienso que cada persona tiene habilidades diferentes, pienso que cuando nos tomamos el tiempo para buscar algo que se relacione con esas habilidades es cuando el empleado queda contento y la compañia queda sastifecha, eso tambien demuestra el valor, el tiempo y la importancia que le damos en YES a todos los empleados y a las compañias.

Trabajar Para YES

Tengo la virtud de trabajar en un lugar donde todos somos maduros, donde se puede sentir el compañerismo aqui todos trabajamos en equipo para lograr siempre cumplir con nuestro objetivo, es bonito saber que no hay comparaciones aqui todos somos iguales e unicos y en todos podemos conseguir ayuda o apoyo cuando se necesita, obviamente como en todos los casos cuando es un nuevo empleo hay nuevas metas nuevas responsabilidades muchas cosas que aprender, pero tengo que reconocer que el ser empleada de YES me ha ayudado avanzar y crecer profesionalmente.

Ya para terminar solo quiero decir que estoy muy contenta de ser parte del equipo de YES, se que trabajo para una compañia donde dan oportunidades para avanzar y crecer, eso me hace sentir que estoy trabajando para la mejor agencia que tiene Utah, YES.

¡Muchas Gracias!
