West Valley employers and job seekers now have access to proven staffing resources and expertise as businesses reopen. PrideStaff, a national, franchised staffing organization, has opened a new agency in Goodyear.
Rhae and Debbie Buckley, owners and strategic partners, bring three decades of personnel experience with all sizes of businesses across multiple industries.
“I’ve dedicated my career to optimizing organizational performance by improving workforce engagement and talent identification,” Rhae said. “After graduating from Oral Roberts University, I held progressive roles leading human resources, recruiting and staffing operations around the world. With each new opportunity, I built my expertise in driving operational excellence and meeting strategic business initiatives for both for-profit and non-profit organizations.”
PrideStaff serves a wide range of industries and fills roles such as light industrial, logistics, administrative support, manufacturing, customer service, call center, front office, general office clerical, medical claims, medical billing, medical office, inside sales, telemarketing, accounting and finance. By outsourcing costly and time-consuming human resource functions, PrideStaff enables companies to focus on growing their core business.
“It is turnkey service, as we do the recruiting, onboarding, training, job posting, reference checking, pre-screen interviewing and behavioral interviewing,” he said. Additional services include:
- Providing weekly payroll and back office.
- Assuming 100 percent of workers compensation and unemployment compensation risk.
- Handling employee changes and all state employment documentation (including I-9 verifications).
At a time when more than 300,000 Arizonans are unemployed, PrideStaff offers the same level of service to help job seekers re-enter the workforce.
“We are able to advocate for job seekers and talk directly with employers who don’t always advertise their open positions,” Buckley said. “Over the years, we’ve learned that delivering a smooth, efficient and successful experience for clients and candidates alike starts with truly listening.
“We seek to understand the needs of each job seeker and employer, identify the hard skills necessary for success in each role and gain an appreciation for each client’s company culture. Armed with this insight and PrideStaff’s unparalleled resources, we create great teams by matching leading employers and talented people.”
The Buckleys believe the most important part of human resources is the word human. They consider each employer or job seeker a valued partner, not simply a client.
“Throughout our careers, Debbie and I have learned that great people are critical to organizational success and that our team can have a positive impact by connecting talented individuals with organizations that need their skills and creativity,” he said.
PrideStaff was founded in the 1970s as 100 percent company-owned units and began staffing franchising in 1995. They operate more than 80 offices in North America to serve more than 5,000 clients and are based in Fresno, Calif. With more than 40 years in the staffing business, PrideStaff offers the resources and expertise of a national firm with the spirit, dedication and personal service of smaller, entrepreneurial firms. PrideStaff is the only nationwide, commercial staffing firm in the U.S. and Canada with more than $100 million in annual revenue to earn ClearlyRated’s prestigious Best of Staffing Diamond Award seven years in a row highlighting exceptional client and talent service quality.
