PrideStaff, a national, franchised staffing organization, proudly named Lake Charles Senior Staffing Consultant Rachelle Pitre a winner of the DNA Award at their recent Annual Conference, which was conducted virtually this year. This award recognizes the team members who best exemplify what it means to be part of the PrideStaff system, by consistently embodying the organization’s mission and core values.
Part of the PrideStaff Lake Charles team from the day they opened their doors in 2018, Pitre quickly became an integral part of the office’s early success. In 2020, she proved to be an invaluable asset, helping the PrideStaff office survive despite the challenges created by two catastrophic hurricanes and a global pandemic that brought the gears of Lake Charles’ economy to a grinding halt.
PrideStaff Co-CEO Tammi Heaton had the pleasure of recognizing Pitre’s achievements at PrideStaff’s Annual Conference. “I’m thrilled to present this DNA Award to Rachelle for helping her office succeed through unimaginable adversity,” said Heaton. “Last year, she lived our organization’s core values, stayed true to our processes, trained new hires on culture and operations, generated multiple new accounts, nurtured existing client relationships, ensured that all employees were paid on time, and helped her office hit new sales records for several consecutive weeks.”
“Perhaps most impressively, Rachelle accomplished all of this during a global pandemic and after two catastrophic hurricanes. She worked from home – without internet for three months – while caring for relatives in the aftermath of both storms,” continued Heaton. “In the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges, Rachelle pressed on without complaint, selflessly serving her team and community. She represents what PrideStaff is all about, and I’m honored to present her with this award she so richly deserves.”
“I’m incredibly proud of Rachelle; she deserves credit for keeping our office thriving through the most difficult of times,” said Thomas Clemons, Co-Owner/Strategic Partner of PrideStaff Lake Charles. “While our entire community faced unimaginable challenges in 2020, Rachelle’s positive attitude and fighting spirit made her unstoppable. By keeping our clients’, candidates’ and associates’ needs at the heart of her daily activities, Rachelle was the figurative ‘glue’ that held everything together through those tough times. We’re proud to have her on our team and excited to build on the relationships and momentum she’s helped us sustain.”
When interviewed, Pitre was humble and expressed her thanks. “It’s such an honor to be recognized for doing work that I love,” stated Pitre. “Last year, everyone on our team pulled together to support Lake Charles employers and job seekers. We kept one another positive and motivated; we lived PrideStaff’s mission to ‘Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most’; and we did whatever was necessary to keep essential businesses staffed and hard-working people employed. I’m thankful to be part of an organization whose values align with my own, and to have the opportunity to serve my community in a meaningful way.”
