This time of year is full of nostalgia and tradition. No two families are the same, which keeps holiday stories interesting. Today, we would like to celebrate the uniqueness of how each of us holds space for family and tradition each holiday season. Here are stories of holiday traditions, some sweet and some spicy, from the unique families of SkyWater.
This time last year, millions of Americans had lost their jobs. Millions more remained employed but fearful of what the future might hold. For employers, it was an equally strange and unpredictable time. Hiring managers routinely saw competitive offers rebuffed by candidates who might have been tempted but were ultimately unwilling to risk leaving the relative stability of their current positions.
Earlier this year, SkyWater Search Partners was invited to join the Ramsey County Inclusive Workplaces Cohort. The group had its second monthly meeting in November 2021. We would love to share what we have learned and continue the discussion.
Imagine you're interviewing a talented professional for a critical role within your company. Your salary offer is competitive. You offer an excellent benefits package. As you walk this candidate around your office space, you are able to show off the wellness room. What does this say about your company?
It's time to celebrate a record-breaking milestone for another SkyWater recruiter: Andrea Anderson has surpassed $1M in billings in under 18 months at SkyWater! Not just that, but she did so while starting her executive search career in March of 2020, at the beginning of a pandemic that the world hasn’t seen in 100 years, and during a time when very few companies were hiring.
It's easy to look at that number and think only of money. However, let's explore what this milestone really means. For this, we turn to Andrea herself.
Today, as we honor the service and sacrifice of our veterans, all of us at SkyWater Search Partners would like to put a spotlight on one particularly powerful way you can recognize the skills and strengths of those who have served in our military: Hire a veteran.
Earlier this year, SkyWater Search Partners was invited to join the Ramsey County Inclusive Workplaces Cohort. The group had its first monthly meeting in October 2021. We would love to share each month what we have learned through being a part of this Cohort.
At SkyWater Search Partners, we believe that one of our greatest strengths is our commitment to our community and how actively our team members engage with the many different communities they call their own. Each quarter, we honor a top-performing SkyWater employee with a substantial financial gift, in their name, to a nonprofit community organization that is near and dear to them. This quarter, we are very proud to say...
Congratulations, Corey Thonn, Senior Associate Recruiter, Engineering & Operations!
Working from home has been a wildly varied experience for Twin Cities attorneys since the onset of COVID. For some, it’s been a time of newfound efficiencies and a welcome break from daily commutes. But for others, it has been an exhausting moment of truth. Not surprisingly, these very different pandemic experiences can be neatly organized along gender lines.
At SkyWater Search Partners, we’re understandably proud of our team. That pride has grown exponentially over these past eighteen months, as we’ve watched everyone pull together, support each other, and never lose focus on serving our clients. Now, more than ever, we’re reminded that SkyWater is more than a company of executive recruiting experts; we’re people who care deeply about investing in our community.
