Hello, I’m Lee Fossett, president of the West Palm Beach office of Express Employment Professionals staffing agency. Welcome to our new company blog.
You know, as a staffing professional providing Greater Palm Beach businesses with temporary help, permanent employees, payroll outsourcing and HR-related services, I don’t truly believe what the headline here says. I derive tremendous satisfaction from my job, making just the right staffing placements at all kinds of businesses across Palm Beach County. My profession is all about work—my own, the work of the employees we place and the work of the clients’ for whom we place that staff. If I didn’t enjoy the concept of work, I’d be one miserable individual.
But there is a situation where work can indeed become drudgery, and that’s when a particular position and the employee filling it equal a bad fit. The ripple effect of one poorly selected employee can affect not only office morale, but it can hurt a company’s bottom line.
That’s why businesses with or without HR departments have come to trust and rely on Express Employment Professionals. We take the guesswork out of new hires, whether temporary, professional or temp to perm. At Express we have a pool of qualified and experienced candidates at our fingertips. We know how to quickly define the needs of the client and then interview the most qualified candidates that exactly match the job description, both in skill set and demeanor.
What I hope you’ll take away from our new blog are employment facts and figures, laws and regulations governing workers and employers, tips for keeping employees happy, motivated and productive from the standpoint of both the worker and employer, and maybe even some of the lighter side of running a staffing agency. I hope you’ll come back often.
