Meet Kyrie Forrester. Today she’s enjoying a successful career in management at an Indianapolis home security firm with lots of great perks—a thriving company culture, leadership training, and opportunities for advancement. But life wasn’t always this peachy, and little did she know, one application would change her future forever.
Rewind to December 2011. Kyrie was miserable working at a daycare. Prior to that, she had spent 10 years working with disabled adults and children. And while helping others was rewarding, Kyrie felt so drained physically and emotionally that she hit her breaking point and quit her job. Unemployed and uncertain about her future, she shared her problems with her mom over lunch. As an experienced HR professional, Kyrie’s mother had heard great things about That’s Good HR and recommended she reach out.
After filling out our online application, she received a call back in no time. From there, she interviewed at That’s Good HR face to face, where we assessed her strengths, skills, and experiences. During the process, Kyrie kept an open mind about the kind of job she wanted. “I was tired of having such emotionally and physically exhausting jobs, and just really wanted to try something different,” she says.
Knowing Kyrie and one of our clients, we knew a great match could be made. Despite being new to the industry, Kyrie was excited to explore a different field. And Kyrie’s personality, experience, and skills were the perfect fit for one of the company’s entry level roles. She accepted the job as a temporary hire right away.
She still remembers her first day on the job as being fantastic. She was struck with the firm’s commitment to its employees—both inside and outside of work—including professional development opportunities and paid volunteer days. Kyrie was determined to learn the ins and outs of her new job and was soon empowered to update departmental procedures and processes.
Three months later, a new leadership position opened up at her company. She interviewed and was soon hired as a full-time team leader. New learning and leadership opportunities came her way with professional development resources, as well as access to helpful wellness and finance classes. “I never expected a temp job to turn into a full-time career for me,” Kyrie says.
Today Kyrie is still thriving at her company. After another promotion, she now works in management, overseeing a team of eight. She expects to keep excelling and enjoying a successful career. “Without reaching out to That’s Good HR, who knows where I would’ve ended up. I never imagined having such a successful corporate career in my life,” she says.
In a fun twist of fate, Kyrie now gets to be a client of That’s Good HR, working with us to hire temps for her company. “Anytime I need someone for the team, my first thought is That’s Good HR. They give such excellent quality team members,” Kyrie says.
