  • I spend most of my time with my kids. We like to keep them active, so when one sport ends, they are usually starting another. Other than that, I spend as much time with my family and friends as I can. I do enjoy a good book when I get the chance!

  • In my free time, I like to spend my weekends at my boyfriend’s vacation home when the weather is nice, where I do absolutely nothing. Good times.
  • I have 20+ years of customer service experience, but I am looking to transition into HR. I am currently working on finishing my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Human resources management.
  • Fun fact: My daughter and I look so much alike she can open my iPhone with her face

October 2021 New Hires

We are excited to introduce some new team members to the JSG family! Please join us in welcoming our newest employees and take a moment to learn a little bit more about each of them. Here are our new hires for October 2021!

Michael Ruiz

  • I have been recruiting now for the past 4-5 years
  • I graduated with my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from Cal State Fullerton and was on the CSUF Men’s Rugby team (Go Titans!)
  • I’m a huge 49er and SF Giants fan

Ryan McAdam

  • My wife and I were high school friends who reconnected after my military career. We have 2 boys (Aiden – 6 & Benjamin – 4). We are California natives who decided to relocate to SC for a better shot at a quality style of living.
  • The bulk of my career has been around customer service/account management in the special commodity transportation industry.
  • Outside of work, I enjoy family time, playing disc golf, hiking nature trails, and shooting.

Isaias Garcia

  • I was born and raised in the Back of the Yards, a first-generation college graduate, and I don’t have any kids, but I have 3 brothers and 1 sister!
  • I have spent most of my career as Accounts Payable for various industries
  • I spend the bulk of my time catching up with the latest shows most recently being Squid Game and I do occasionally go apple picking.

Kyle Lebeau

  • I am not married, I have an older and younger brother and am 32 years old.
  • I worked general labor with my fathers’ landscaping company when I was younger. I then moved into the automotive industry where I worked for about six years and have been in recruiting since 2016.
  • I consider myself a regular guy that likes sports, going out for a drink with friends, long walks on the beach, carriage rides, caroling, knitting, playing golf, and watching movies/TV shows.

  • I graduated from the University of Hartford with a degree in Marketing as well as a general background in sales, but soon after graduation, I decided that sales was not a field I wanted to go into for a career. This is when I began my first Human Resources position as an HR Director/Recruiter, which I immediately loved. From then on, I focused on building a recruitment career and the rest is history.
  • I love music and play various instruments; I would say my most proficient instrument is the guitar. Other than that, I enjoy following Philly Sports (Go Birds) and playing video games.

Introducing Lily Bracy, our Newest HR Coordinator

Please join us in welcoming Lily Bracy, our new HR Coordinator! Lily joined the HR team earlier this month and is excited to fulfill her passion for people as one of the newest members of the JSG team.

Tell us a little about yourself.

I graduated in December of 2020 from Wheaton College with a B.A. in Psychology. I have worked in Human Resources for a little over a year and absolutely love this field. With my new position as HR Coordinator, I am excited to continue pursuing a career in HR here at JSG.

Why did you decide to go into a career in human resources?

I wanted to use my Psychology degree in a way that allowed me to meet the needs of people in the business world. Human Resources combines my passions of understanding people and finding ways to make their lives better. By taking care of tasks like payroll, benefits, employee verifications, I can help create a better work environment where employees feel like they are being cared for by their company.

What attracted you to Johnson Service Group?

As a recent graduate who was looking for a job, recruiting companies would reach out to me all the time with potential openings. This was my first exposure to staffing & recruiting, and I was really intrigued by this industry. However, when I met the HR team, including Gabriella, Abigail, and Susan, I knew I wanted to join JSG. Their experience in the industry and warmth towards fellow co-workers showed me that JSG was the absolute best choice for me.

What will your responsibilities be as part of the JSG HR team?

As the newest HR Coordinator, I will primarily be working on payroll and verifications of employment.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work? Do you have any hobbies?

Usually, I spend my time outside of work with a good book. I am currently reading War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy and am absolutely loving it. I also grew up playing tennis, so a lot of my weekends are spent out on the court.

JSG Named to Three of Staffing Industry Analysts’ (SIA) Lists

For the sixth consecutive year, Johnson Service Group has been named to three of Staffing Industry Analysts’ (SIA) lists. This year, these lists include: 

  • Largest Staffing Firms in the U.S. (62nd) 
  • Largest Engineering Staffing Firms in the U.S. (13th) 
  • Largest Staffing Firms in Canada (15th) 

This is a notable achievement for our company and speaks to our consistency over the years. “I commend each and every one of our employees for their dedication and hard work,” said Dale Slater, Founder and CEO of JSG. 

Although this award reflects revenues from last year, making this list during this economically and socially challenging year is an honor for all of us at Johnson Service Group. “We thank you all for your continued efforts and wish all of our JSG family health, happiness, safety, and success… now and in the future,” says Ken Slater, Executive Vice President of JSG. 

What are the SIA lists?

Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) is the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions. This year’s report for the Largest Staffing Firms in the United States features 175 staffing companies; that is an increase from the 157 firms included last year. To make the list, each firm must generate at least $100 million in revenue in 2019. 

“The 175 companies in this year’s report represent 63.5% of the market and with a combined revenue of $97 billion indicate an industry well-positioned to weather the impact of the pandemic,” said Barry Asin, SIA President. “As the U.S. navigates and recovers from the current disruption, many organizations will look to utilize temporary and interim workers to meet shifting demand and maintain an active and agile workforce.” Moreover, the additional 18 firms making SIA’s list this year illustrates the growth of the staffing industry. 

The JSG difference

JSG continues to work diligently to offer our clients and candidates world-class service and diversified offerings to fit their evolving needs. Which is why we have recently expanded our consulting services to include information technology consulting in addition to our wide array of staffing services. “Our main goal is to be able to continue efficiently aligning our strengths with our clients’ needs. Our staff will continue to provide exceptional service with a strong sense of urgency, attention to detail, and follow-through,” says Ken Slater. 

The entire JSG team works diligently to maintain our present position as the most effective cross-industry staffing solution available. We work hard, we work together, and we work for you.

Happy Holidays From All Of Us At JSG!

2020 has been a challenging year for most of us, which makes this season feel a little extra special this year. The best part of the holidays is remembering those who make them meaningful. To celebrate, we had our employees throughout North America share how they’re getting in the holiday spirit. Please join us in cherishing this time with one another and relishing in gratitude for the relationships we’ve established and grown throughout 2020.

The Charleston, SC team virtually sponsored a Christmas stocking filled with specified items for a 9-year-old girl. This is a picture of our team dropping off the gifts!

Christmas at our house means Christmas pillows to lounge on for Mr. Tristan… Just don’t judge his at home COVID-19 haircut, he’s sensitive about it! 😉

Kevin Sullivan

Planning a wedding during the pandemic hasn’t been easy, but plans are finally starting to come together for my fiancé and I to get married in March! We’re sending a Christmas card to let all of our friends and family know that the wedding is still on, but the list is going to be a lot smaller than we thought.


Cathy Kennedy

 

 

Our 1-year-old channeled his inner “Christmas Vacation” by dressing up as Uncle Eddie!


 

 

 

 

Here’s a picture of my tree and baby. She was caught mid-yawn, thought it was perfect!

 

This is my favorite part of my Holiday decorations (and also my occasional Teams Video backdrop)! Happy Holidays!


 

My cat admiring Christmas tree lights for the first time ❤ it’s her first Christmas!


Christmas time is a very special time of the year filled with many blessings.

Our team in Jacksonville would like to share the beautiful tree in our lobby we get to enjoy every day!

It has been an unusual year to say the least, but all of us are very blessed!  We are all coming together to do a Christmas Drive for Wolfson Children’s Hospital in downtown Jacksonville.

Wolfson Hospital is in great need to help the infants who can not be home for Christmas!  So the team is buying gifts for the little ones, and next week Operations will deliver them.

We can already see all their smiling faces. 😊 It is always nice to be able to give back to the community.

From our office to yours we wish everyone at JSG a  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


My wife decided to make a Christmas blanket for our one-year-old niece. Her first attempt turned out to be a dog scarf for Penny. Happy Pawlidays!


 

 

We are so blessed to be spending the holidays in our new home. While this is the boys’ second Christmas, it is their first time seeing all the Christmas decorations.

Ruger and Remington love to watch the lights and check out the ornaments. All four dogs have been very good girls and boys, so we are all excited to see what Santa brings them.

Merry Christmas,

The Rudders

Laura, Josh, Reya, Ruger, Remington, and Ruby


 

Shelby and Lolli are patiently waiting to bark at Santa and of course some new toys to tear up!


 

 

 

A shout out to wish everyone a wonderful safe holiday. May 2021 bring you and your loved ones many blessings.


 

 Interesting that his hat said naughty on one side and nice on the other and he totally chose nice all by himself…..

Thank you to all of our wonderful clients for partnering with us to help hardworking job seekers find new opportunities this year.

From all of us at JSG, have a healthy, safe, and prosperous Holiday season!
