“It’s the resilience of our entire team that gives us this distinction, even during a pandemic. We banded together and, in all aspects, worked as a true team. We brought collaboration and innovation to continue to be successful. It’s easy to feel defeated or down during a time like this, but it helps when you have team members that are there to pick you back up. We have a leadership team that cares about each person in this company and their families, and it showed during these times.”
Connor Johansen, Manager, Client Solutions
“The Intersect Group is uniquely focused on putting the needs of its clients first. Throughout times in 2020 when hiring was unexpectedly plummeting, our team was all hands on deck to reach out to our valued clients who entrust us with their job search to keep in touch, provide encouragement, and creatively find ways to add value to their career needs. And, while being extremely client-centric, our management team has also created a culture that demonstrates its genuine care for our staff. They have provided ongoing communication and transparency, tremendous flexibility to support our teammates during uncertain times, and a work environment that promotes safety and health.”
Kim Shark, Principal Executive Recruiter
“We are able to achieve this distinction because even though we are in a pandemic, The Intersect Group has done a great job of keeping us connected. We made the wise choice to implement Zoom right before we were quarantined.
