cpThe Hays Construction & Property team from the Houston office were sponsors at the recent Associated Builders and Contractor (ABC) Membership Breakfast.

ABC is a national association for the construction industry, with 70 chapters representing 21,000 merit shop construction and construction-related firms.

As a member of the ABC chapter in Houston, we were invited to attend and provided job market news and practical hiring advice to over 400 construction professionals who attended. The team had a chance to network and introduce themselves to hiring managers and business leaders from across the region. The discussions centered around new projects planned for the coming months and what employers need do to get the right talent on board.

The guest speaker, Anirban Basu, ABC’s Chief Economist and Chairman & CEO of Sage Policy Group, Inc., hosted the event and discussed future trends in the economy and the resulting impact on the construction industry, both locally and around the world.

Members of the association were awarded for their dedication to the industry. We also had an award presentation of our own, as one lucky delegate went home with a construction site Lego set after winning our Lego Movie Raffle.

Association events like those hosted by the ABC are a great opportunity for our teams to get out and meet employers and really understand their challenges and how we can support their hiring.

Have you thought about a career in staffing? Over the next few months we’re going to be profiling some of our top staffers, giving you insight into this exciting and rewarding career path.km

“When I personally started my career years ago, staffing wasn’t my initial career objective. It soon became my passion however, and now having worked in staffing for over 20 years I can honestly say I’ve had a more rewarding career than anticipated.”

For this month, we’re featuring Kim Moore, an excellent leader and team member based in Chicago.

Kimberly Moore – Business Unit Leader

See what it would be like working at Veredus. Kimberly Moore covers her career in staffing and reveals tips on how you can climb the corporate ladder.

Kimberly is one of our staffing veterans here at Veredus, a Hays company. She has been in the IT staffing market since 1997. She previously came from a psychology and vocal performance education background. Both have led to her success in recruiting.

She had no idea that she would end up in staffing, but her experience in psychology has allowed her to better understand people and how they work. Along with her vocational training that taught her how to better communicate with others.

Kimberly has been with us since we started 15 years ago. She has been trained and mentored by some of the best staffers in the industry. She has been able to advance her career from starting as a recruiter and moving to an account manager, consultant resource manager and landing where she is now as a Business Unit Leader in Chicago.

Her sales experience and dedication eventually led to her opening her own office in Chicago. She says, “The opportunities are endless here. And now the potential to grow even further into the world of Hays gives me and anyone that joins our team here so many more opportunities than what’s already been given to me over the years.”

Since her transition to Chicago 4 years ago she has built so many great relationships with influential leaders spanning across a variety of industries. Our customer base is limitless and keeps expanding through the Chicago area.

Recruiting and hand-selecting a group of talented, inspiring visionaries as a part of our core Chicago recruitment and account management team is what I love doing best. Anyone that comes in knows that the skies are the limit and there are no boundaries. The advantage of joining and being part of this expanding office means 100% collaboration, advancement, career growth, recognition, rewards and major monetary incentives.”

The Chicago office is a fun, driven, energetic and lively group that really focuses on a team environment. Their work ethic is the harder you work the more rewards you have to enjoy.

Kimberly is a prime example of someone who has utilized all of the company resources to get where she is today. You too can set yourself up for success and build the career you have dreamed of.
