Welcoming Tamara Okun to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Tamara Okun

When the global pandemic hit, Tamara Okun lost her job but she didn’t lose hope. She used her hard luck as motivation to think outside of the box and find something new. Not just a new job, but a new career path altogether. That alone takes courage, and we are so grateful that Tamara had the fortitude and perseverance to find her way to STS Technical Services.

Good afternoon, everyone, and welcome to the latest installment of our “Meet the Team” series.  Today, we have the distinct pleasure of introducing Tamara Okun, our newest Remote Technical Recruiter in Wisconsin. For those of you who would like to get to know Tamara a bit better, check out the quick Q&A below.

Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

Hey, there! Prior to the pandemic, I worked as an administrative analyst at a major financial institution.  Although my career path made sense monetarily, I struggled to find my purpose.  When the pandemic hit, I was unemployed for five months before I found restitution in Talent Acquisition. I was a coordinator for a year at Intuit, and then I worked for Harley-Davidson briefly in Human Resources; a role that lead me to work for STS Technical Services.  Falling into this industry was a blessing. I love being part of the process of getting people employed, which has become the purpose I was searching for.

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

I love biking trails and taking mini road trips when we can.  I am also an abstract artist!

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

A combination of all of them so I could do everything 🙂

Sachi Greene Named to SIA’s 40-Under-40 List for 2021

Sachi Greene

Denver, CO., July 27, 2021Sachi Greene, SVP of Operations for STS Technical Services (STS), was recently named to Staffing Industry Analysts’ (SIA) 40-under-40 list for 2021.

As one of the youngest members of STS’ executive team, Greene has spent the past eighteen months leading a company-wide effort to increase the organization’s use of technology and automation; a need driven by the COVID-19 pandemic and the team’s decision to shift to a fully-remote workforce.

“The pandemic has made this year extremely challenging, so to be be recognized by SIA for the work that I have been doing is an amazing feeling,” states Greene. “But this honor isn’t mine alone. My team is the primary reason I’m here today. Without their dedication and hard work, we wouldn’t be bouncing back as quickly as we are, so let me take a quick moment to thank each of them for their exceptional effort, kindness and support. I genuinely appreciate each of you and cannot thank you all enough.”

STS Technical Services specializes in providing workforce management solutions to clients across the aerospace, industrial, manufacturing and defense industries. And when the pandemic hit, the team made a decision to move it’s entire workforce out of four main U.S.-based offices and into fully-remote work environments. “The decision was easy for us to make. We had to keep our people safe. But to shift a workforce of 100+ into remote-work-only mode was a daunting task. I am proud to say, however, that everything has worked out really well. In fact, over the past year and a half, my team and I have implemented a variety of workflow automations and improvements that allow our workforce to maximize its efficiency, regardless of where our people login from,” says Greene.

“While the setbacks we experienced as a company due to the global pandemic were challenging, emerging from the downturn and into one of the tightest labor markets we have ever seen has made it even more important that our organization continues to be creative in its approach,” sites Greene. “Making sure that STS Technical Services is poised to execute on both its internal hiring needs and external client priorities right now is crucial to our company’s long-term success. That being said, we’ll continue to embrace the challenges as they come while remaining forever adaptable and open to change.”

Welcoming Brooke Rankin to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Brooke Rankin

We love welcoming new faces to the STS Technical Services’ family, and today our team has the distinct pleasure of welcoming Brooke Rankin, our newest Technical Recruiter.

Not only is Brooke a delightful person to work with, she’s a fantastic mother, a kind soul and an extremely hard worker.

In an effort to help you all get to know Brooke a little better, our marketing team asked her three questions, and her responses to each are below.

Thanks so much for taking the time, and welcome to the family, Brooke. We are really excited to have you!

I have an Associate’s degree in Human Resources Management and have completed a full-cycle recruiting internship. My past few years have been spent working in finance, and I’m happy that I made the transition to Recruiter.

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

I have a toddler so she takes up the bulk of my free time. We like to play in our backyard and go to the park. I enjoy traveling when I have the chance. In fact, I recently visited New York City and am looking forward to vacationing in Hawaii in November.

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

I would be Dr. Strange because he protects the earth from mythical and magical creatures. Truthfully, I am not a huge superhero fan, but I do appreciate Marvel over DC Comics.

Welcoming Jason Fraise to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Jason Fraise

Here’s the thing. Our newest Technical Recruiter, Jason Fraise, is a great guy. He really is. He works hard, he’s easy to get along with, he’s a great father and he loves sports. What’s not to like, right? At least that’s what I thought until I had the chance to review his new hire Q&A (see below).

Question three was supposed to be a simple one. I asked him which superhero he would be if he could be any superhero? His answer… Tom Brady. Ugh. I just can’t today. Go Bills!

Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I have 15 years full-cycle recruiting experience. I studied at Bridgewater State University where I graduated with a degree in Finance.

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

Play sports — Definitely soccer, but I also like basketball, golf, tennis, racquetball and flag football.  I’m too old for tackle football.

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

TB12 — Tom Brady. Why? Because he’s the GOAT!

Welcoming Tina Malm to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Tina Malm

Have any of you ever seen a movie called “The Hustler?” How about its long-awaited sequel, “The Color of Money?” Both are fantastic films where Paul Newman plays a character by the name of “Fast” Eddie Felson; a pool shark who works his way from billiard room to billiard room ready to empty the pockets of anyone who dares challenge him.

And while both movies are amazing, the story of “Fast Eddie” pals in comparison to the real life story of Tina Malm, our newest Recruiter based out of Severn, Maryland.

You see, Tina is not only an amazing Recruiter, she’s also a professional pool player who is currently ranked Top 25 in the country! With that in mind, if you happen to bump into Tina at a work event, don’t ever challenge her to a game of pool unless you’re willing to lose… and lose big. Tina is shark on the tables, and it’s that same killer mentality that has helped her thrive in her new career with STS Technical Services.

Let’s take a minute to get to know Tina a little bit better, shall we? Check out our quick Q&A below.

Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I’ve been a Recruiter both on the agency side and the corporate side; most recently for a government contractor in the D.C. area. There, I was in charge of staffing agency relationships and hiring cleared individuals.

I graduated from Penn State with a degree in Organizational Leadership and a minor in Labor & Employment Relations. I also have my PHR (Professional of Human Resources) certification (the hardest final exam I’ve ever taken).

My favorite part of recruiting is extending the offer and really getting to know the candidates with whom I work.

What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

I’ve been lucky to have traveled almost everywhere in the United States playing competitive, professional-level pool (I am currently ranked in the top 25 in the US). I love how the game challenges, delights and frustrates me, and yet it still teaches me so much.

I also love the smell of ocean air, dinner with friends, and movie/home time with my husband and daughter.

If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

With the ability to heal other people, eradicate plagues and bring people back from the dead, I would choose the Scarlet Witch. None of the negatives attributes she possesses, only the positives, of course! How amazing would it be to bring back Albert Einstein and hear his commentary and opinions about modern scientific progress? How funny would it be to hear George Carlin comment about the political and social occurrences of the last 5 years? Beyond that, being able to heal people and make a difference would be next-level amazing!

Nala Diallo

As the world slowly inches back to a semblance of normality, we at STS Technical Services find ourselves busier than we have been in quite a long time. We are so busy, in fact, that our team has grown a lot over the past few months.

Now in the pre-pandemic past, it would have been easy for us to get to know every new face around the office. Today, however, face-to-face interaction proves to be a touch more challenging with many of us still working remotely. This fact is why we created the “Meet the Team” series in the first place; to give our colleagues, clients, customers and friends the opportunity to get to know the new faces of STS Technical Services. To that end, it gives us great pleasure to introduce Nala Diallo, or newest Technical Recruiter in Brookfield, Wisconsin.

Let’s get to know Nala a little bit better, shall we? Check out the quick Q:A below.

Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications. This past year, I was a Human Resource Intern and grew to love recruiting!

Questions 2: What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

I’m a big fan of crafting when time allows. I love crocheting, jewelry making and my recent favorite is making candles.

Question 3: If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

I would be Superwoman… for sure. I love what she stands form, and I love how she represents women and girls. She’s a strong, independent woman; the embodiment of feminine strength and I love that!
