Welcoming New Hires

Employees need to feel welcome to settle into your company properly and ultimately want to stick around! Helping an employee settle in quickly can increase their productivity, as they become more confident in their role the more comfortable they get.

Ensure that they feel prepared

Make sure that your employees know what to expect and how to prepare for their first day of work. Before their first day of work, tell them what time they need to arrive and what they may need to bring for their first day. Provide them with the company dress code and give them clear instructions on how to get into the building. Provide them with the name/information of who will meet up with them and welcome them in when they arrive. Doing so makes the new employee feel comfortable and confident for their first day at your company.

Introduce them to their coworkers

An employee’s first day is about orienting themselves to how your company runs. Make things a little easier by creating space for them to interact with their new coworkers. If possible for your company, have a couple of people take them out to lunch during their first week. Coworkers can show them the restaurants around the area in addition to getting to know them. Taking the time to do this for an employee makes them feel like they are valuable and welcome to the company and expresses your excitement to have them there!

Provide them with company S.W.A.G.

Everyone appreciates a little “welcome!” gift. Providing your new employee with a few branded items can help integrate them quickly into the company. A company mug, shirt, or even pens can make them feel like a part of the team. Check out this article on why giving company swag to your employees boosts morale.   

New employees are naturally outsiders when they are first hired at a company. Bring them in quickly and make them feel like they are one of the crew, as they should be!

February 2022 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.

  • I’m from Memphis, TN and recently in the past year relocated to Dallas, TX to be closer to the TX BBQ(partially true).
  • My background is in national implementation for contingent on-site workforce solutions in the staffing space.
  • I enjoy spending time with my spouse Chelsea and being outdoors with our fur baby Dior getting into anything that allows us to be physically active as a family.
  • I’m a true fan of the game of football(not a cowboy’s fan by any stretch of the imagination for those wondering) and when I have free time, I enjoy attending spoken word performances around the city with Chelsea.

  • I am a Die Hard Eagles and Phillies fan (Also a 76ers and Flyers fan)
  • Prior to working at Johnson Service Group I was an Assistant Tournament Director at Perfect Game USA. (Baseball Scouting Organization)
  • I graduated from Rowan University with a Bachelors Degree in Business Management
  • I have a passion for making websites as a second source of income
  • I love having a good time with family and friends

  • I have a beautiful fiancé Chloe who works in a childcare facility, her future ambitions are to open her own daycare one day. I also have a stunning daughter (thank goodness to Chloe) who just turned two on the 15th of January. She’s a fantastic kiddo and I am glad to be her father!
  • I started my career at a part-time gig during high school working for a call center where I worked retention for 24Hour Fitness. I was nominated for my consistent retention rate and that’s where my love of sales pretty much blossomed. I became a store manager for T-Mobile and managed roughly 5 employees when I was 20. I was #1 in the company in the month of March 2020 when COVID struck. I transitioned out of retail into the insurance world. I realized I loved the desk job life and it suited me well. I took an opportunity as a Territory Manager for an aspiring agent where we created a 12-month road map that consisted of 2 two sales teams (English, bilingual “Spanish”) and two offices in two states. The contract between my Agent and our appointed insurance company was changed dramatically and turned our business from “profitable” to “not profitable” and we sadly had to close our doors.
  • I am pretty avid into Tech and find myself building small to medium size gaming rigs and selling them. I also am working on my own sales book “AACE Your Expectations” where I talk about the 4 key pillars to be a successful salesman within any industry.
  • I am also working with a small startup that is reshaping the way we experience “workcations” and I game on occasion. Love reading! I mentor young aspiring entrepreneurs and help give them the tools to be successful, fills my cup!

  • Fun Fact: I share the same birthday with my dad!

Quiana Goree

I also have a Yorkie who thinks she’s a pit bull. She sits in the window and barks at everyone all day. LOL. I bought her a shirt that says security.

  • 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

  • I am originally from Tennessee (Go Vols!) My brother is also a recruiter for JSG and recommended that I join the company, so here I am!
  • My career background stems mostly from customer service and management.
  • I have two german shepherds and live with my fiancée. (Wedding in April of 2022) Between wedding planning and the dogs, we stay very busy outside of work.

  • I was born in Western Canada, grew up in Central New York & have been in Birmingham for the past 35 years.

October 2021 New Hires

  • I’m a huge 49er and SF Giants fan

  • 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.

Will Campbell

  • I played rugby in college
  • I collect rare plants
  • I have visited 46 of the 50 states

Matthew Goldberg

  • My family is from Philadelphia originally. I was born in the city but shortly after I was born, my parents relocated us to the suburbs, specifically Abington, PA. My older brother is currently completing a Ph.D. program at Carnegie Mellon University.
  • 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.

Breanna Hunsucker
