From the Corner Office
By Marc Berman, President and CEO

I hope that each and every one of you had a happy and healthy holiday season.

I want to start the new year off by providing you an overview of what Vector offers. I know that our recent acquisitions and new business lines might cause some confusion. We grew so swiftly this past year that even I get confused sometimes!

I’ve been reading a lot about the wonderful and prosperous year my competition, friends, and business associates had. I want to wish you all continued success in 2018! I really mean that, because I see how hard you all are working in your respective companies and I understand how challenging it can be.

That being said, Vector did not have the year I was hoping for regarding sales/revenue. But, as I noted, we made a lot of strategic moves and we have made a dedicated effort to grow exponentially in 2018. I love the decisions we made, and I have huge dreams for the coming year. We are going to spend this year aggressively reaching and exceeding the goals that our executive team has set to ensure that our clients, candidates, employees, and vendor partners continue to be proud of us.

Vector’s core business is staffing. Hector, Michelle, and I have a combined total of over 75 years in the industry, and we believe that we have the strategy, methodologies, and tremendous rigor to compete with anyone out there. After all of these years in the industry, we have not only learned what to do but, most important, what not to do, what has given this industry such a “black eye.” We are committed to improving this reputation by transparent communications, committed follow-through, and sincerely caring about the outcomes. I challenge my competition to do the same.

Today, Vector’s core competency of recruiting has three business lines that we have honed and refined this past year. Within those lines, we have developed special teams of experts who focus on particular disciplines or industries aligned with our client and candidate needs.

  • Contingency Staffing (flexible staffing to direct hire placement) TalentFLEX: Our contingency recruiting teams are composed of experts within the following disciplines: HR/Recruiting – Marketing/Communications – Operations/Administration – Technology.

  • Outsourced Staffing (recruitment process outsourcing) – TalentRELAY: Our outsourced recruiting teams are composed of experts within the following industries: Government Contracting – Hospitality/Parking – Health/Wellness.

  • Communications (staffing to outsourced services) – TalentMEDIA: Our outsourced communications team is composed of experts within the following disciplines: Editing – Design – Social Media – Branding – Corporate Communications.

Together, Vector’s teams provide comprehensive services for employers to attract, acquire, and attain greatness from talent that propels their businesses forward. We truly love what we do and the Vector family we have built. We are excited to grow our practice in 2018 and hope you will be a part of it!

Me et Mi chelle Businger,
VP of Talent Services
You probably would have never guessed it, but our VP, Michelle Businger, is a small-town girl from the Midwest. She was born in Wahoo, Nebraska, and grew up in Hennessey, Oklahoma. Hennessey is so small that even today the population is only a little over 2,200.

Although from a small town, Michelle is from a big extended family. Michelle 's mother is one of 10 siblings and her mother's family was all right there in Oklahoma. She still fondly remembers being able to ride her bike at night through town without worry because she knew she always had family close by.

Her love of family has easily transitioned to her own. She is the proud mother of two daughters. Her eldest daughter is the mother of her two adorable grandchildren. Her granddaughter is an excellent gymnast (maybe she'll aspire to be an Olympian one day) and her grandson somehow always finds a way to make grandma smile. Michelle's youngest daughter is a budding young artist in college in New England.

When asked about who her idols are and who she looks up to, Michelle didn't have to go far—it's her mom! Her mother has shown Michelle what it is like to be a strong, resilient woman. She's so thankful for everything her mom has taught her over the years.

Many of you may not know this, but the one thing Michelle would like to pursue (if she had some free time) is to learn ballroom dancing! Growing up in Hennessey surrounded by rodeos and swing dances makes her miss those happy times. Her hope is that ballroom dancing would give her a sense of nostalgia and at the same time would offer her the opportunity to learn something fun!

Michelle has shown us that hard work and dedication can truly pay off. She's been doing what she loves for more than 25 years now. She's got a passion for helping others and hopes that her work leads people to success.
Each week, our Talent teams discusses topics ranging from staffing and recruiting to communications and publishing and sometimes even health and wellness.
