Last Sunday, one of our busiest clients held an employee appreciation day. They were gracious enough to include our onsite associates in the festivities.
What follows, is an article contributed by one of the volunteers helping us in our booth.
This past Sunday, I volunteered to work with Action Staffing Group (ASG) at one of their client companies and handed out food and drinks to over 200 of their employees. Their client was holding an annual summer appreciation picnic and invited its vendors to join in on the festivities. These workers from ASG work at a leading food company in Newark, NJ. These great people spend 40 hours or more each week working in the warehouse which is temperature controlled. Some spend their time in the refrigerated section and the others work in the freezer. On this day everyone was outside for the event. It was nice to see everyone remove their hats, jackets and gloves and enjoy being together.
I spoke to Lonny, an ASG worker that enthusiastically stayed around the food tent smiling and chatting with other workers and the ASG team. Lonny was named employee of the month recently, and he was extremely proud of this honor. For a long time, he was not given a fair opportunity by other companies. ASG gave him the chance he was looking for. He spoke about what it meant to him to have the opportunity to work hard and earn a decent living. He was so thankful that ASG was able to see the good in him and for that, he has taken full advantage by doing a fabulous job with their client in Newark. In fact, things have gone so well, soon the client intends to hire him directly with full benefits. For Lonny, a true dream come true !
ASG is contributing to the local New Jersey economy and strengthening the lives of people in urban areas that don’t want a handout but rather an opportunity to step up. As a staffing and recruiting business that specializes in Light Industrial, CDL Drivers and Skilled Search, Action is busy supporting New Jersey’s growing warehouse, logistics and transportation infrastructure. Working regionally and nationally, Action Staffing is helping many people like Lonny move up in their lives.
That in fact is Action’s mission and purpose in everything they do.
