Karen Schmidt, Managing Director of Sanford Rose Associates®, Featured in ZipRecruiter, What Does Labor Day Mean to Employers?
Dallas, TX 9/6/2016
According to the Department of Labor, Labor Day, the first Monday in September, “is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”
Labor Day recognizes the contributions that workers have made to the prosperity of our nation, says Karen Schmidt, Managing Director of Sanford Rose Associates, an Executive Search Firm.
“As recruiters, we are fortunate to play a role in building on that prosperity by having a direct impact on the advancement of the careers of our candidates and the strength of our client organizations,” says Schmidt. “At Sanford Rose Associates, we know that recruiting is one of the toughest jobs, but most fulfilling careers that one can ever have. We recognize, as with so many who worked diligently throughout past generations, that success in this business means that you must be passionate about being a recruiter, and wake up every day craving success. We have all met individuals who are passionate about so much yet accomplish so little, because they lack the ability to focus their thoughts into action. They live in their dreams instead of in reality, often because the fear of failure holds them back and becomes easier to talk than to do. The importance of Labor Day is that it celebrates all those who have let their actions speak louder than their words.”
