Month in Review: January 2016
Eastridge Workforce Solutions had a successful start to the new year as emotions continue to linger from our second annual conference that took place in the beginning of December. January was a busy month filled with new team members, new clients, and new opportunities. Here are some of the month’s highlights from our Las Vegas, San Diego, Cerritos, and Anaheim offices.
Las Vegas, NV
Eastridge Workforce Solutions sponsored Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance's annual State of Economic Development Breakfast on January 21, 2016 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. Jason Bruckman, Regional Vice President in Las Vegas, had the honor of opening the breakfast and shared challenges that companies would face in 2016.
Urging all companies to look at their own internal staff and focus on employee engagement, Bruckman shared, "It won’t be your worst employees who will be leaving, it’ll be your best. It is imperative that you have a plan on how you are going to retain your best employees."
The Convention Division in Las Vegas welcomes Nick Stock, Account Manager, to our team. Nick joins us after being with a convention registration and management company for nearly 15 years, where during his role of On-Site Operations Manager worked with Eastridge as a vendor.
San Diego, CA
The Human Resources Division in San Diego hit the networking circuit hard in January, attending legal and economic updates at the SD Regional Economic Development Corp., SD HR Forum, SD HR Roundtable, and Association for Talent Development.
The Human Resources Division in San Diego welcomes Heather Stamps, Senior Recruiter, to our team. Heather joins us after being with one of the nation’s largest healthcare staffing and management services companies for 10 years. With her experience as Director of the pharmacy staffing division, we are excited to have her on board!
January has been a busy month for the team as they filled over 39 contracted positions for the week of January 17th and 58 positions for the week of January 24th. This was a pleasant surprise as January has historically been the start of the team’s slower season. A special shout out to Kelsie Soriano, Operations Supervisor of the Manufacturing & Distribution Division, for filling a Direct Hire Technician position for one of our medical device clients.
The Carlsbad team is excited to welcome their newest hire, Angie Magdaleno, who is working as the Front Desk Administrator. She has been an incredible addition to the team. A hearty congratulations to the Carlsbad team for recently filling a Direct Hire Maintenance Technician position for one of our manufacturing clients—the first Direct Hire placement for Carlsbad in over a year.
The team is off to a great start this new year. Thanks to the addition of a new manufacturing client, they have already been provided with over 20 direct-send positions.
Cerritos, CA & Anaheim, CA
The Administrative Division in Cerritos and the Manufacturing & Distribution Division in Anaheim attended ResCare’s job fair on January 27, 2016. Eastridge participates in this job fair every quarter with roughly 35 other employers and about 100 job seekers.
The event proved to be successful! The Administrative Division is already setting up several in-person interviews while the Manufacturing & Distribution Division sent several candidates straight from the job fair to their office to meet with a recruiter the same day.
Thanks Roselyn, Michelle, and Amber for doing such a great job representing Eastridge!
