Company Culture – The Elwood Staffing Family Difference

DaveJohnMikeMarkElwoodThe Elwood Family Difference

David Elwood established Elwood Staffing as a company that values relationships. What better way to exhibit that than to have your three sons working alongside you to help people and further a father’s dream? Each of them brings a complementary strength and skill to the company to help it succeed. Their respect for each other has allowed them to properly align their goals for the future of Elwood Staffing. When they’re not working together in business, the Elwood men enjoy spending time with each other and encouraging each other in accomplishments outside of the office.

Elwood Staffing is a company based upon integrity. We understand that in order to establish successful relationships with clients and associates, we must establish successful and trusting relationships with our employees. We build trust among employees, clients and associates by collectively sharing the same values and goals. As a company, we work hard to apply the Golden Rule to business by treating everyone – clients, associates and employees – as we would want to be treated. This approach holds us accountable for our actions and identifies Elwood as a company that values people over everything else.

Elwood Staffing Acquires SOS Employment Group

Elwood Staffing and SOS Employment Group today announced the joining together of their companies, creating an entity that rivals some of the staffing industry’s largest players. With combined annual revenue of more than $750,000,000, the company will now rank in the top 10 of all U.S. commercial staffing companies, the top 20 of all U.S. staffing companies, and just outside the top 50 of all global staffing companies.

Elwood Staffing, headquartered in Columbus, Indiana, and SOS Employment Group, headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, closed a transaction allowing Elwood Staffing to purchase SOS Staffing Services, Inc., d/b/a SOS Employment Group. SOS will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of Elwood Staffing, but operate more like a sister company giving the combined entity a significantly expanded national footprint and service delivery capability unrivaled by most. The U.S. staffing industry is highly fragmented and is comprised of thousands of staffing agencies. In terms of size, this transaction will put the combined company in the top 1% of all staffing companies in the world.

This combination brings together two of the nation’s leading, privately-held employment services providers, blending talents and resources in the areas of traditional staffing, skilled trades staffing, professional/executive search and outplacement services.

The 6 Parts of Recruiting for Culture

If anyone said that a recruiters job is easy, THEY LIED!  Quiet they contrary, our job can be one of the most trying (and the most rewarding) jobs in the organization.  We are not only tasked to identify the best candidates for the position, based off of a vague and usually outdated job description, but then we have ensure that they “fit” into the already established culture.  We must  determine through a few short emails and phone conversations who they are, what they’ve done and what personality type they are.  The reward for us corporate recruiters, is seeing great people coming to work at a company that we love and admire!

Good luck recruiters and for good measure, here is an article to help you as you recruit for culture.  The 6 Parts of Recruiting for Culture

~Angela Malagon, Corporate Recruiter Elwood Staffing

Elwood Staffing is growing

There is nothing like tremendous growth to create excitement and buzz around a staffing firm.  It is also enough to make a corporate recruiter’s job go from a 5 to a 10 in about 5 seconds flat!  It is a very exciting time for Elwood Staffing and we are looking for the best candidates to join our team.  My job is to find them interview them and make sure that they are the best fit for our company.  No pressure, right?  I am reading a book, “Hire with your Head” by Lou Adler.  He talks about the importance of hiring wisely and using performance-based hiring to build great teams.  That is my ultimate goal as I move to build the best internal team for the company that I love.  I aim to recruit wisely and hire with my head, utilize the tools that I have and find ways to enhance and make them better. As our company continues on this amazing journey, I hope to keep you posted on my challenges and successes of corporate recruiting.  I also hope to share interesting facts and articles that will make you the best candidate that you can be going into your next interview.  Be the best that you can be at whatever you do!         – Angela Malagon
