At Area Temps, our account representatives and recruiters are the life blood of our company. They work diligently to provide employees with new job opportunities and customers with unparalleled service, and we wouldn’t be in business today without their efforts. To recognize their importance and to reward them for their success, our staff members compete to win various awards each business period.
We were excited to announce this year’s winners at our 2013 Year-End Celebration and we would like to share their accomplishments with you.
Top Performance of the Year
Our top performer for 2013 was Kim DeGroff, general manager of our Parma office. Kim, a 22-year veteran of Area Temps and repeat winner of this award, is one of our most dynamic employees. She has a way of building a rapport with her clients that translates to a lasting loyalty. Her ability to provide top-notch service to her existing customers, coupled with her ability to build new business relationships in 2013, won her first place.
Congratulations Kim, Area Temps wouldn’t be the same without you!
The Achievement Club
Being a member of our elite Achievement Club is the highest honor awarded to our staff members. Those who were named to this level in 2013 earned a 5 day/4 night trip to St. Thomas, with a stay at the luxurious Marriott Frenchman’s Reef Resort, plus 3 bonus vacation days.
This year’s winners were….
Account Representatives: Kim DeGroff and Dale Koberna of our Parma office, Lisa McCoy and Karen Rosenhoffer of our Cleveland office, Tammy Jett of our Mayfield office, and Gail Enders of our Lakewood office.
Recruiters: April Derenburger and Michele Phelps of our Parma office, and Jennifer Oberg of our Lakewood office.
Congratulations to all of our Achievement Club winners; enjoy your trip!
Our Team Trifecta award goes to the office that earns the most points for meeting customer service-oriented objectives, such as receiving positive customer and employee reviews, making new placements, and developing new accounts. The winning office in 2013 was Parma and the employees at that office split a cash bonus.
Great job Parma! Your office had a very successful second half of 2013.
Our account representatives and recruiters earn their professional certification by meeting certain industry standards. Once certified, Area Temps awards cash bonuses to those achieving new levels of professionalism. The recipients of a certification bonus in 2013 were Lonni Hendershott, account representative in our Mayfield office, Stephanie Sfekas, the location manager of our Mayfield office, and April Derenburger, a recruiter from our Parma office.
Congratulations to each of them, on reaching their new professional high water marks!
In closing, we would like to thank every member of our staff for their dedication in 2013. Area Temps couldn’t grow without their efforts. We have a strong team of talented and loyal individuals who believe in providing the best service possible to our customers and our employees and, because of their dedication, we look forward to a successful 2014.
