As Aristotle put it, “Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.”
At A2Z Staffing Solutions in Helena, this perfection is achieved daily by strategically matching the right staff with the right employer so that everyone is successful.
Since 2003, A2Z has provided on-demand staffing solutions statewide to local, state and federal government, corporations, and private sector employers. From traditional temporary, temporary to permanent, employee referral payroll program and recruitment services for office clerical, professional, scientific, technical and medical clients, A2Z fulfills any need for any client.
Setting A2Z apart from other staffing agencies is the fact that it is an independent and women-owned business. Manning the helm of this successful operation are not one but three tenacious ladies who are absolutely passionate about what they do. Deena Korting (president/CEO), Anna Kazmierowski (vice president/COO) and Charlotte Eskildsen (sec.,treasurer/office manager) have all worked together practically since A2Z started. The amiable partnership has been fundamental to A2Z’s success.
“We all have very diverse personalities, but we work together like a well-oiled machined,” said Korting. “We have synergy."
They each admitted having a passion for a different aspect of the business. Korting’s love for people, for instance, compelled her to recently relocate to working front and center at the front desk in their office. That way, she explained, she gets to greet everyone that walks through the door and have the opportunity to get to know their employees and clients on a more personal level.
"Many applicants rely on A2Z as a resource for employment search or their career transition,” said Eskildsen. “We are able to ultimately lead them down a career path they now love...and we are proud to be part of this success story each time.”
Building those relationships and paying it forward, explained Kazmierowski, is what it’s all about. By listening to their client’s needs they are able to connect them with the appropriate staff or job, and in doing so, empower them in their personal and career aspirations.
A2Z prides itself on being a “service-oriented” agency that always prioritizes their clients and employees. “We are proactive and offer solutions to our clients by being accommodating, flexible, continuous process improvement, on-the-go access to newest e-services technology, and always focusing on our clients' experience," said Kazmierowski. “Each client is unique and we thrive to make the hiring processes as easy as possible.” That commitment to service and being “YOUR staffing agency” is what keeps clients coming back to A2Z year after year.
“We’re very appreciative that clients entrust us with their hiring needs in support of their business daily operations---we know they could choose anyone—but they choose us,” said Kazmierowski.
While the women of A2Z work hard together as a team each day, they highly value their long term, dedicated and talented staff , Darla Smith (accounting manager), Katie Gabriel and Emily Lindquist (staffing coordinators). "All have given our company a kinship in every possible form. Their excellence, commitment and passion for helping people, drive our company’s success!" Kazmierowski said. We don't forget to add in a bit of fun too, “You have to have laughter to keep the family feeling going on here.” said Korting.
“Despite low unemployment rates, we continue having high quality applicant pool to recommend to our clients,” said Kazmierowski.
