It seems as if 2017 just flew by, without any warning. As I look back, I want to express my gratitude to our great clients, many of which have stayed with us year after year. I’d also like to extend a warm thanks to the many new clients who took a chance on Contemporaries. We hope we’ve lived up to, or exceeded your expectations. I would also like to thank our many temps and candidates who placed their future career goals and objectives in our hands. To the many new college graduates we’ve been fortunate enough to work with, I know there has been some talk about this generation being perceived as an entitled group. But, I can say first hand that we’ve found the opposite to be true.
In fact, in my over 30 years experience in the staffing industry, I have never seen a more mission-driven group of individuals. In many cases, if these candidates have not served time volunteering, they are very focused on giving back to others in the future.
To the prospective Class of 2018, we’re hoping to replicate for you, the results we had with your predecessors, having helped over 90% transition from temporary to permanent positions.
To our many temps who have been with us for a significant period of time, keep up the great work!
A company is only as good as its key employees and I’d like to express my thanks to my own all-star team including, Samantha, Michael, Katie, Janet, Koreena, Craig, Lucy, and Larry.
As we embark on our 20th year, serving the Greater Boston area, I look forward to succeeding together!
As I do every year, I’d like to end with a quote from Eckhart Tolle:
“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.”
