Employee of the Month Stays in Shape with Temp Work
The EMBERS Staffing Solutions Employee of the Month program is made possible by our friends at Home Depot. They supply winners with $100 worth of tools and equipment to help them on their journey to becoming economically self-sufficient.
Harold is EMBERS Staffing Solutions top pick for the December Employee of the Month award. After presenting him with his award, we sat down to chat with Harold to learn about his experience with our temporary staffing agency.
What brought you to EMBERS and how did you hear about us?
I heard about it from the TV. I was fed up to do nothing, so I wanted to get work and at the same time get money because I’m on my pension.
What’s the most fulfilling part of your work?
I like to do exercise, keep moving, keep in shape, and keep your mind busy.
What do you tell people when they ask you about EMBERS?
I tell them EMBERS is the best, you’re number one. You’re the best because you take care of people and make them feel more like human beings. You pay for any training, I’ve heard from around the people who have got it and they all say it’s an advantage. It’s a big plus! And, at the same time, you teach people. By not paying every day, you teach them how to take care of their money and go back [to work].
How have you benefited from working at EMBERS?
It keeps me in good shape. I like to work and I like to be in good shape. I’m 72-years-old, and I’ve got muscles! That’s the idea. And, it clears your mind, keeps your mind busy.
How does it feel being the employee of the month? What does that mean to you?
I was really surprised. You know, I’m over 70 and it’s nice.
