Matt Ertle, Owner/Strategic-Partner
I’m a Central Oregon local! After graduating from Bend High, I graduated from the University of Portland with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance. My father is a local business owner and my mother is a retired non-profit director. Both modeled the importance of making an impact in our local community. My work experiences and family influences have prepared me to help local employers and job seekers connect in Central Oregon.
I spent the first 10 years of my career with JELD-WEN managing global supply chain, procurement, and inventory replenishment programs for wood and steel products. I then transferred to JELD-WEN’s Bend, OR manufacturing plant to help run the facility. In this position I managed office and production personnel in Customer Service, Purchasing, Logistics, Drafting, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, and Production Scheduling. This experience gave me an appreciation for the critical workforce challenges facing Central Oregon businesses today.

The Scoop on Staffing:
Strategic staffing enables businesses to quickly adapt in fluctuating business cycles and effectively manage labor costs. We strive to be nimble and innovative to help companies develop, implement, and execute the correct strategic staffing solution for their business.
Employment Services remains a fast growing industry. Companies recognize the value in outsourcing the time, risk, and cost in filling temporary and permanent positions within their organizations.
Secrets to Success:
- Follow up and follow through.
- Maintain a balanced ego.
- Follow the Golden Rule.
- Establish expectations and manage them when they change.
