April Employee Highlight: Frank Pytel

After working with Johnson Service Group for an incredible 37 years, Frank Pytel has made the exciting decision to retire this month! Although Dale and Ken Slater are quite convinced that he will simply return to work after a week or two of rest, the Chicago office threw a retirement party to celebrate all the excellent work that Frank has done over the decades that he has worked for JSG.

Frank Pytel started with JSG back in 1985, when the company was just a small operation. He stuck with us as we grew to what we are now—one of the largest staffing firms in North America! We’ve had our share of successes and struggles over the years, and Frank’s contributions to JSG extend far beyond contractor placements and AVM reports.  

Frank is a kind-hearted, intentional person. He was always a reliable resource for both seasoned salespeople and brand-new employees–someone to give advice and bounce ideas off. Frank built strong relationships with both his coworkers and clients. He made a point to understand clients’ exact needs and communicate those to recruiters in order to find the perfect candidate. The office will not be the same without Frank’s stories and jokes!

After his last day on April 15th, Frank will retire to spend more time with his wife of 40 years, Karen, as well as his children and grandchildren. Frank will spend his time golfing, watching sports, and taking frequent trips to Florida and Arizona. We wish him the best for this upcoming season of rest.

Thank you for all your fantastic work, Frank! You will be missed.

Some words from JSG leaders, Dale and Ken Slater:

A lot happens when a person spends over 37 years with the same company… not the least of which is that they become part of your family and you theirs. We wish Frank the best in his retirement and hope that the future for him and his family is filled with many great days and years ahead. Congratulations, Frank!… and THANK YOU!”
