OUR HR OUTSOURCING REPORT:
Sweet Summer Roundup
With Labor Day weekend behind us and kids everywhere donning their best back-to-school duds, we bid a fond adieu to summer. We here at myHR Partner are not going to be sad about the end of the season, but rather thankful for the beach days, poolside lounging, barbecues and family vacations that we enjoyed. And we will try hard to pretend that we don’t see any of the Halloween decorations popping up in stores this week. (Much too soon if you ask us.)
Although our HR outsourcing services never go on vacation, we did have some great things happen while school was out. We’ve decided to dedicate this post to recapping our summer exploits and assorted points of interest. It was a pretty busy summer for us, to be sure!
Tina & company had many memorable moments
We had a blast with the Penn State Teen Entrepreneurial Challenge.
Being able to lead activities for a session at this two-week overnight camp for high school students interested in entrepreneurship was a summer highlight for sure. “The kids were amazing. We gave them the challenge to compose marketing campaigns in groups, and they did not disappoint,” says Tina. “It was a great learning experience for all of us.”
We landed in Fast Company Magazine
We were back in the news in July in a Fast Company article entitled “These Six Companies Are Tackling The Summer Slump In Unique Ways.” It profiled six companies from all across the country that have found creative and effective ways to reduce the traditional dip in employee productivity during the summer months.
Tina took home the Smart CEO Brava Award.
Yep. That’s our fearless leader for you. We were thrilled to see her receive the prestigious Philadelphia Brava Award from SmartCEO Magazine in July. Go, Tina, go!
We made Lehigh Valley Business’s Fastest Growing Companies list for 2016.
In August, LVB.com included us in its list of 45 of the fastest growing companies in the region. In the last year, we have expanded our team of HR outsourcing professionals 35% with five new team members. It’s great to be recognized by the local business community for our success.
myHR Partner Rocked Musikfest.
Tina also represented our company when she introduced bands Lucky7 and The Aardvarks at Musikfest this past August. “The energy from the crowds was exhilarating! It was a blast!” she said.
(We are currently awaiting Tina’s new bedazzled “I’m with the band.” T-shirt, which should arrive from Etsy any day now.)
Great HR stories you may have missed
- Martin Guitar gets a shout out. Back in June, we shared a great LVB.com story about local business legend, Martin Guitar. The Lehigh Valley company embraces and capitalizes on an employee-supportive environment and employee engagement. It also celebrated its two millionth guitar.
- Recruiters are turning to mahjong to find prospects? We read it in a Reuters article back in June. It’s going on in Japan, where graduates play in a mahjong tournament set up by recruiters looking for a new ways to find talent. We kid you not.
- We are more ready than ever before to help with your HR outsourcing needs. This fall, we are bringing you modern, effective HR services and support in more ways than ever.
