Salt Lake City, Utah – Your Employment Solutions (YES) is proud to announce recognition as the 2022 Utah Best of State Employment Agency! This is the third straight year YES has won the Best of State award.
The Utah Best of State Awards recognize outstanding individuals, organizations and businesses in Utah. Businesses are judged by:
- Achievement in their field of endeavor
- Innovation or creativity in business
- Contribution to a better quality of life in Utah
A Utah Born Staffing Success Story
Your Employment Solutions (YES) was founded in 1995 to help several Utah moving and storage businesses that were struggling to hire employees. Since then, YES has grown into a booming employment agency serving businesses and jobseekers throughout Utah in a variety of labor industries. Since inception, it has been YES’s goal to help some of the best employers in Utah find high-quality “temporary” employees who would eventually join those customers as long-term, full-time workers. YES’s core mission is to quickly deliver the right person to the right job and alleviate the time business clients spend sourcing, screening, onboarding, paying, and insuring new employees—allowing YES customers to focus on business growth.
2021 was another record year of growth for YES, helping match thousands of jobseekers with the right jobs. YES expanded for the first time into Utah County, opening new offices in Spanish Fork and Pleasant Grove. Although Your Employment Solutions is one of the state’s largest staffing companies, YES exclusively focuses on service and growth in Utah—and is proud of that fact!
“Receiving the Best of State award three years in a row is remarkable,” notes YES CEO Reed Laws. “Your Employment Solutions has serviced the Utah market for 27 years and has built a high-quality, compliance-driven brand.”
What Makes YES Different Than Other Staffing Agencies?
There are many staffing companies in Utah that attempt to source candidates, conduct screening assessments, and process required legal paperwork. YES differentiates itself and achieves best-in-state results through a combination of processes, data usage, technology, and creativity in approach.
YES’s ability to provide customers with real-time, accurate, actionable data is unmatched. As Utah’s economy opened back up in 2021, unemployment rates dropped to record lows and many businesses throughout the state experienced never-before-seen labor shortages. YES was quick to supply customers with detailed, customized wage analyses of their local market and competitors. This gave YES customers vital information necessary to make decisions regarding wage increases or providing additional incentives to attract and retain employees in Utah’s highly competitive labor market. YES’s efforts supported wage increases for the majority of customers. These increases directly benefited thousands of Utah workers and helped Utah employers hire qualified employees and reduce attrition.
In addition, YES actively partners with customers to provide key attrition and workplace safety data and best-practices to help improve working conditions. YES employees are better qualified and better trained in preventing work-related injuries—a noteworthy accomplishment given YES’s light industrial focus.
YES doesn’t cut corners. The labor market requires constant compliance, commitment, and management to keep up with employment laws and regulations. “The current labor environment is challenging, and demand has never been greater,” adds YES CEO Reed Laws. “Receiving this award reassures our customers that YES conforms to onboarding rules and initiates E-verify compliance audits to help support their brand and legal responsibility.”
Innovation in the Utah Labor Market
YES has witnessed firsthand the stress and anxiety starting a new job or changing jobs can create for many people. Applying to a new job can be potentially overwhelming to those new to the workforce or unhappy in their current employment situation. YES provides several resources and tools to help make a job applicant’s journey a positive, encouraging experience. including programs to help inexperienced jobseekers create a professional resume, gain experience, learn skills, provide job-specific feedback and teach best-practices to help our employees step forward confidently into new, lasting careers. YES regularly rewards and recognizes outstanding employees, gathers data to help improve work conditions, and does everything possible to help the people who walk into our offices leave with a positive employment solution.
YES’s business model inherently contributes to a strong Utah economy, helping both jobseekers and businesses succeed. As such, YES’s achievements in the labor and staffing market make a dramatic improvement in the lives of everyday Utahans. YES recruiters don’t just help jobseekers find quality work, they often serve as career counselors and educators, offering needed guidance and direction in the job market. For employees starting an entry-level position, YES strives to match them with an opportunity with on-site training and new skills development. For workers looking to advance opportunities within a chosen field, YES recruiters and account managers will work to highlight their achievements and expertise when customers are seeking new leadership.
“We’re honored to win this award,” says Chris Walker, Area Manager at YES. “This means that we are fulfilling our mission statement, sticking tightly to our guiding principles, and building relationships with our teams and clients that only make YES better year after year. To me being recognized as Best of State also says that we walk-the-walk and don’t just talk-the-talk.”
In summary, YES’s best-in-class culture is built on forming beneficial long-lasting relationships with employees and business customers—positively impacting the quality of life of the people YES serves in Utah.
