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!”

Be a FLU FIGHTER This Year

The 2020-2021 flu season will be challenging due to the current battle against the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) emphasizes that getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever this year. It is essential to protect yourself and the people around you from the flu and help reduce the strain on healthcare systems responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Contact your PCP (primary care physician) and speak with them about obtaining your flu shot today! Now more than ever, please make your health and safety a priority! For more information on flu prevention and the flu vaccine, please visit the CDC’s website.

Below are some resources from the CDC that share the importance of receiving a flu shot this year to help us stay healthy and safe.

be a flu fighter

Pregnant? You Need A Flu Shot!

Flu can be a serious illness, especially when you are pregnant. Getting the flu can cause serious problems when you are pregnant. Even if you are generally healthy, changes in immune, heart, and lung functions during pregnancy make you more likely to get severely ill from the flu. Pregnant women (and women up to two weeks postpartum) who get flu are at high risk of developing a serious illness, including being hospitalized.

A Strong Defense Against Flu: Get Vaccinated!

The best way to protect yourself and your loved ones against influenza (flu) are to get a flu vaccine every flu season. Flu is a contagious respiratory disease that can lead to serious illness, hospitalization, or even death. CDC recommends everyone six months and older get an annual flu vaccine.

Here are some key reasons to get a flu vaccine this year.

Influenza Vaccine: Who Should Get It, And Who Should Not

Everyone 6 months and older is recommended for annual influenza vaccination, with rare exceptions. For the 2020-2021 flu season, ACIP recommends annual influenza vaccination for everyone 6 months and older with any licensed, appropriate influenza vaccine (IIV, RIV4, LAIV4, or nasal spray) with no preference expressed for any one vaccine over another. Some vaccines are not recommended in some situations and for people of certain ages or with certain health conditions, and some people should not receive influenza vaccines at all (though this is uncommon).

Different flu shots are approved for people of different ages. Everyone should get a vaccine that is appropriate for their age.

If you want the flu to stay away, go and get your flu shot today!

Introducing Tiffany Record, JSG’s New Benefits Administrator

Please welcome us in introducing Tiffany Record, JSG’s new Benefits Administrator!  Keep reading to learn more about the newest member of our Human Resources team.

You have an impressive career in Human Resources! Tell us more about your professional journey so far.

My journey has been an adventurous one since the start of my career. I have worked in various roles in the HR industry and enjoyed every minute of it; however, the one position I loved the most is “Benefits Admin and/or Open Enrollment.” I have had excellent opportunities to work for prominent companies on both a full-time and contract basis. What I enjoyed most of my journey is the people I have met along the way. My lifelong goal is to do what I love; work for a company, servicing people with standards of excellence, and a motivation to be the best employer in their field.

What do you like most about working in HR?

What I like most about HR are employee relations and benefit relations aspects. I enjoy helping, so it comes naturally to me when there is a need to be met. I love being part of an (HR) team who is the heartbeat of the company, working together as a team to service our internal and external clients. 

What attracted you to Johnson Service Group?

The first thing is the company’s success and to have 35+ years in the industry is quite impressive. Also, the warm Katie Plzak, JSG’s Corporate Recruiter, made it all worthwhile, especially while interviewing during the COVID-19 crisis. Finally, after I met with Susan Sproule, HR Manager, and Sean Nash, VP of HR/General Counsel, I was sold on their warm, inviting personas. It was also pleasant to see that they weren’t just concerned about my resume and skills, but also cared about me as a person; it was refreshing to see their noteworthy interest in the company’s success from an HR perspective.

What will your primary responsibilities be as a member of our HR Team?

I will be responsible for employee relations regarding our benefit programs, handling the HR communication, and transactions related to benefits. I am also responsible for assisting our brokers and vendors with any benefit relations items, such as managing enrollments and advising employees.

What do you like to do for fun outside of work?  

I am ideally a homebody because I enjoy my “me” time. I also love to travel and visit my (4) grandchildren in Sacramento, CA (which has been limited right now). But overall, I enjoy gatherings with my family and friends. I like surfing on Eventbrite and attending different business network events and seminars. When I am not busy with my friends or family, I enjoy reading books and visiting bookstores. I also love working with young women and mentoring them through life’s journey.
