Your Authentic Self at Work

When you start a new job, do you do your best to fit in and fall in line with the culture of the company? If so, you may start to feel like you are not being yourself, or you simply cannot be yourself so you decide you can’t possibly continue in that workplace and jump to the next.

It costs a company a lot of money to hire and rehire so it is in their best interest to retain their employees – especially the good ones. It takes time, effort and money to constantly hire and train new staff. At All Star Labor & Staffing it is imperative that we not only fit qualified people with each job but fit personality and character as well. It is in all our best interest to foster your individual talents and skills because companies want you to be an asset.

How do you not leave YOU behind when you walk into work? The following are ways you can fit into the culture but also set your own tone and exemplify authenticity in your workplace:

Be your authentic you from the start. Be upfront about the way you work best, express your ideas and put your whole self into your work. Just remember that everyone of your co-workers should be allowed to be their true, whole selves as well. Acceptance and appreciation leads to a happy and healthy work environment. It also makes it a more creative and collaborative one since everyone brings their own special skills to the table.

Ask the tough questions. Ask questions that will lead you to what you need to do to get ahead, fit in, and stand out. Find out how your company values creativity and out-of-the-box thinking. Don’t be too fearful to ask about technology usage, performance reviews, the promotion process, or any other facet of your work. Transparency creates communication between employer and employee and that can lead to the autonomy of self-expression.

Let others in. When you let others know the reason behind how you choose to work and share your ideas you give insight into how your authentic self helps you perform better at work. Also giving permission for others to appreciate your true, authentic self.

How do you bring your authentic self into your work?

All Star Labor & Staffing Employment Agency to Expand into Eugene on May 17

EUGENE, OR – 05/17/2017 — Portland-based All Star Labor & Staffing company expanded its services and opened the doors to its new Eugene location today, with plans to match local residents with available jobs in Lane County. All Star Labor & Staffing is a full-service boutique agency focused on creating successful partnerships with local companies by understanding each client’s unique needs and striving for excellence with every placement. Founder and Director Ramona Mathany spent 15 years in the PEO business providing clients with payroll, HR, workers’ compensation insurance and administrative services before starting All Star Labor & Staffing. She brought this expertise into her staffing business, and is now committed to providing companies with their single most important asset – their people.

All Star Labor & Staffing was established in 2009 in Portland, OR and placed 150 employees in the first year. Now, as the company celebrates its 8th anniversary, it also celebrates 3,200 employees across Oregon including Salem, Albany and Bend and two branches in Portland with the latest being an office in NE Portland on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. In an effort to expand its services and continue to serve Oregon business and support local jobseekers, it will open its 6th location in Lane County. Mathany said the agency has temporary positions and long-term assignments available throughout Lane County.

“We find jobs for individuals including temporary assignments, seasonal positions, and evaluation-to-hire opportunities that could lead to a full-time, permanent placement,” Mathany said. “But it is not as simple as it sounds, as we consistently provide quality service and pay special attention to what makes each business unique. We strive to help employers grow their businesses while helping employees develop their careers. All Star serves as a bridge to finding the right fit for both clients and employees. Our job is to be a part of the journey, lending a hand with a spirit of excellence.” Mathany said.

Oregon has recently reported historically low unemployment rates. This is great news for our economy but can prove challenging for employers. So while Lane County is home to other staffing agencies, Mathany said she’s confident All Star’s personalized approach to recruiting and placement will be a tremendous asset to local businesses facing unprecedented obstacles due to the declining number of individuals seeking employment.

The newest All Star Labor & Staffing branch celebrates being fully operational today, May 17th. The office is open Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and will be operated by Branch Manager, Kris Gruba who has worked in business management for 20+ years and specializes in personalized placements for large and small businesses.
