I have been working at LABUR full-time (More than 5 years)
There are a number of things we do at LABUR that I have not seen before in the industry and sincerely value in both my employment here, as well as in my career overall.
The first is our core values and our focus on integrity, honesty, ethics, and transparency. These are not traits that are commonly found in other firms that I’ve seen or competed against. To start a business vision with those ideals really sets the pace for the team and how we conduct business. In a market that is remarkably fast-paced and challenged to blur the lines, we’re doing the opposite. We don’t cut any corners. It’s freeing to be a part of that. At the end of the day, you know that what you’re doing is right and that you’re doing the best job possible. And it makes living with the results easy, no matter what they are, because you’re operating honestly and with integrity.
The interactions managers have with us feel different, because they are different. I recently had a manager say to me, “It feels like you guys really want to understand more about what’s going on here and about the challenges we’re facing. You’re not just searching for buzzwords.” We’re after real solutions. Clients feel that, and so do our consultants. Those types of relationships – and our focus on rapport and getting to know the best people on the market and what they want and need and not what LABUR wants and needs – really set us apart.
The excitement of building this business and this culture and trying to disrupt how traditional firms handle staffing and solutions is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. And, being on the ground floor of what that disruption looks like speaks to the opportunity and the excitement around what’s going on here. It’s palpable. I’m energized every day to be in the office and to be generating marketable change.
When you’re as small as we are and you want to be as big as we want to be – the opportunities are everywhere. Whether it’s to build your own book of business or a contact list of consultants, manage an office, or lead a division, all of those opportunities exist here. But what’s also great is the exposure to skills and responsibilities that come from working in an intimate environment like ours. You’re not a cog in a wheel; here, everyone’s a family member. You’re going to learn a lot, get exposed to a lot, and do a lot. And to me, that’s exciting. Great people can break the mold, and we love growing our people.
No negatives come to mind.
