KNF&T Staffing Resources is happy to announce that Gretchen Jones has been named the fourth quarter winner of KNF&T’s 2017 Staffing Employee of the Year contest.
While Gretchen was looking for a full time job, she decided to work some contract positions and was referred to KNF&T by her niece, who previously worked with us. When Gretchen met with her consultant, Maddie, she wasn’t sure what type of work to do since she had previously worked in Human Resources. So, she began by taking a job and seeing if it was a fit. As it turns out, it was. In fact, mostly every contract position she worked, Gretchen knocked it out of the park.
As her consultant Maddie mentions, “Gretchen has worked four successful contract assignments with us, as well as an event. One company liked her so much that when they had a new position open, they called and asked for her specifically.”
And it’s no wonder why she was so beloved. Gretchen’s work ethic is second to none. In her own words, “I work every job like it’s the most important position in the world.”
For example, at her latest position Gretchen was given a data entry job that was planned to take one month. Gretchen finished it in four days. To boot, when they checked her accuracy, it was at 99%. The company was so impressed with her work on this project and on subsequent projects that the company’s President personally asked her if she’d like a permanent position.
As Maddie stated, “Gretchen is the type of candidate who you can call and ask to go to an interview in an hour or start a role the next day and she always makes it happen. She goes above and beyond and makes things easy for everyone else she works with. While working another position, Gretchen was awarded employee of the month and was recognized by the organization for being quick to respond to a person in distress. Overall Gretchen is lovely to work with!”
Gretchen resides in the MetroWest area.
