YES Staffing Employees are the Best in Utah!
This month's Employee Spotlight belongs to an On-Site Manager who YES has always valued, but has also become incredibly valuable to one of our largest clients. Please give it up for Seth Hopkin!
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
– Days off
– 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!
