If you've been following our blog, you know that we like to introduce you to our team from time to time. It gives you a small glimpse into what we are all about; through the eyes of our greatest asset: our people! Meet Erica Dennis, Staffing Manager at our Per Diem Healthcare Division.
1. What do you love about working at SquadBuilders?
> There are many reasons why I love working at SquadBuilders, but one of the main reasons is that I love the "working family" atmosphere. We all bring something a little different to the table but together we make a great TEAM. We can laugh, cry, and joke but at the end of the day we support each other and know that by sticking together and focusing on the "end goal" we can accomplish great things.
2. How many years' experience have you had in recruiting?
> I am new to the recruiting world, but I have been fortunate enough to have some great guidance and insight from our seasoned Recruiters. When you believe in your company and their values and have support and the means to grow, anything is possible and I am confident that I will be able to succeed in helping others find their dream job.
3. Who is your hero and why?
> I would have to say that my grandmother is my hero! I can only hope that I have inherited all of the best qualities that she possess. Her wisdom and unwavering love and being my rock all through my life is something I will always be in debt to her. Nothing is better than unconditional love and no matter what I am going through at the time, she always knows the right thing to say.
4. What book are you reading right now?
>Currently I am reading "The Rogue Lawyer" by John Grisham. He was the first author that truly captured my attention and I own every book he has ever written.
5. KU or Mizzou?
> KU without a doubt!
6. Name two interesting things about yourself?
> I wouldn't personally call it interesting, but I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan, almost on the verge of being obsessive if I am being honest with myself!
> My husband and I are huge music and movie buffs and we frequently have full conversations in movie quotes or lines from songs. We like to keep things interesting!
7. My favorite KC BBQ is?
> I am a picky eater, so let me start off by stating that fact. This is one of those questions that every KC native is supposed to have an answer to, but honestly, I am pretty spoiled by my husband being an excellent cook in every way. That includes BBQ!
8. What is your favorite web site or app?
> I don't really have a favorite, but I am pretty partial to Pinterest, Ebay and Etsy. I would consider myself to be a pretty thrifty and crafty person so I do utilize those web sites the most.
9. What song best describes your work ethic?
> "Man in the Mirror" by Michael Jackson. If I am going to be successful in life, whether it be in my professional life or personal life, I have to be content and aware of who I am and my limitations. The choices or paths that I choose to take, and my successes and failures are all determined by and start with ME.
10. What do you want someone walking through the door at SquadBuilders to know about the company? About yourself?
> Being a family owned business with a quarter of a century under its belt speaks volumes. It just reiterates that we must be doing something right! Our Team practices the Golden Rule, and we treat others as we would want to be treated. The years have gone by and times may have changed but the solid foundation that the company was built on is still as strong as ever.
> I would want someone who walks through the door to know that my dedication to the company and its vision as well as the people we help, is unwavering.
