Staff Management | SMX is celebrating our 35th anniversary this year. And in honor of that, we wanted to highlight some of the amazing people who make this company great. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to provide exceptional service to our customers and associates for over three decades.
Our first spotlight is a very important person in the history of this company, Loree Lynch, Senior Vice President of Operations for Staff Management. She is a founding member of our company and has truly seen it all. We asked her a few questions about why she loves working here and the future of the staffing industry
1. What’s your favorite thing about working at Staff Management?
As much as it’s a cliché, I will have to say undoubtedly the people. (We are the people company after all!) I have had the honor of working with some of the brightest, most hardworking, passionate, and creative people over the past 35 years. I’m so lucky that many of them have, both long-tenured and new, become a family of sorts. It’s very comforting and empowering to work with people you know will always have your back and you have theirs.
2. What’s a notable memory from your time here?
After all this time, it becomes difficult to choose from so many great ones. But one sticks out. The first time we hit $1M in revenue in a week! I remember exactly where I was (traveling for an implementation of course) and who was in the room when I got the call.
3. What advice do you have for someone new to the industry?
The industry can be a tough one. But when you select the right organization, it can provide an enormous amount of experience in multiple areas of business. You may be challenged at times, but the pay-off is the satisfaction of matching people with work, establishing high levels of customer service, and working with some of the best talent around. Plus, no day is ever the same (and I really love that!)
4. How does this company differ from others you've worked for?
Of course, I am biased, but this company was built to be different from the very beginning and I think we succeeded. We wanted to build a place where inclusivity, innovation, dedication, flexibility, and focus on exceeding standard service levels was a priority for clients and associates.
5. How has the industry changed since you started?
As a company that arguably launched the onsite model, we have seen so much change over the years. Our tagline in the early days was Innovate or die. And even now, I think that motto rings true. As everything changes, from the economy and legislation to business and people, you must be able to be flexible enough to change with it all. Hopefully, with that mindset, you can stay ahead of the curve and not follow it.
To keep the celebration going, we created a timeline of the best moments in our 35 year history.
