2016 was another very exciting year at ERG – we won more accolades, added amazing new team members, and celebrated those who have been with us for a while. We continued to build strong relationships with our consultants and clients, as well as strengthened our team culture.
Here are just a few of our highlights from 2017:
Best of Staffing – Talent 2016
For our second year in a row, ERG was awarded Inavero’s Best of Staffing Talent® Award! Inavero is a third party company who surveys each consultant ERG placed in the past year. We won this accolade after receiving an overwhelming number of positive reviews from our consultants! The award is given to companies who demonstrate customer service that goes above and beyond. We are so honored to have won this two years in a row, and look forward to finding new ways to continue to better serve our consultants.
Casino Night Round 2
In 2015 we hosted our first ever Consultant Appreciation Night, and it was such a hit that we brought it back in 2016. Rumor spread about how fun 2015’s event was, and this year we had over 75 people join us! It was a fun night playing blackjack, roulette, and craps with professional dealers. Consultants won prizes like the Ninja Blender, a GearVR and the mystery gift – cold hard cash! We can’t wait to host our team again during 2017’s event!
Great Place to Work
A big win for our internal team! We surveyed each of our internal members and based on those results, we were certified as a Great Place to Work! ERG scored high in segments such as credibility (94%), fairness (96%), pride (92%) and camaraderie (97%). Our culture is so important to us, so we constantly try to find ways to continue to strengthen it. Between our team trip to San Francisco to watch the Giants play from the front row of the bleachers, to playing Bocce Ball in Los Gatos with pizza in hand, to Go Karting in Fremont to promote some friendly competition, we always try to make this a fun place to be.
This year was a big year for our Head of Recruitment, Tim Dawson. Not only did he hit his 5 year milestone, but he was also promoted to lead our entire recruiting team. To top it off, he was one of two President’s Club winners, alongside Matthew Chummers. Each of these guys excelled far beyond their yearly goals, earning them each a spot in the President’s Club! Each of them were awarded this distinction for the second time. This year we also celebrated the anniversaries of Tyler Martin with 9 years, Matt Chummers with 6 years, Kim Anderson, Josh Giles, and Sabrina Martinez with 2 years, and Allan Sherwood, Brittney Goodwin and Kristen Shumate with 1 year.
Celebrating the Holidays with our Consultants
Each year we host a holiday party so that we can have dinner with our consultants and their spouse, but this year we took it up a notch! We invited all of our consultants along with their whole family to join us in our office. With games and prizes for the kids, amazing gifts and food for the adults, this year was by far our most fun holiday party yet!
Volunteering with Second Harvest Food Bank
This year we teamed up with Second Harvest Food Bank to give back to our community! We matched over 2,000 canned food labels to the correct can so that those who receive the food will know exactly what’s in it! Second Harvest Food Bank helps feed over 250,000 families in the Silicon Valley. This means 1 in 10 people receive their food from SHFB. If you’re interested in donating or volunteering, visit their website www.shfb.org! Ninety-five cents of every dollar goes straight back into supporting the community.
We are looking forward to another amazing year at ERG! If you want to join in on the fun, you can apply online at http://www.erginc.com/silicon-valley-staffing/join-our-team/ or email our Internal Recruiter, Faye Alvin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
