Welcome back to #WeAreGreenKey, where we shine a spotlight on our powerhouse recruiting team.
To start off the week, we meet up with Brittany Leader on the Healthcare team. After thirteen years at Green Key, Brittany was promoted to Principal in December. She takes us through her journey to get here and how she plans to continue growing and training.
How did you first get started in recruiting?
I went to grad school for counseling and became a certified school counselor for K-12. When I was doing my internship, I became a little bit bored, but finished school anyway. I’m also a pretty serious horseback rider, so I was debating going pro. Honestly, I was a little lost. I saw Green Key had a temporary administrative position open when they were replacing their front desk person. I applied and was asked to come into the city for the interview. When I got there, they felt I could do more than an admin position. The next thing I know, I’m a healthcare recruiter and now it’s thirteen years later.
What about recruiting keeps you coming back every day?
I get bored easily. I love that no two days in recruiting are the same. I’m also a very adrenaline focused person. In recruiting, the highs are really high, and the lows are really low. I enjoy finding that middle balance. Some days and months are bad, but usually the good outweighs the bad. You have to be resilient here.
What is the training like on your team?
When we were in person, it was different. Now, we have a Teams channel dedicated to training. A lot of it is virtual, but we hold each other accountable. We use our cameras and keep everyone engaged. We also use the Green Key LMS (Learning Management System) to mainstream the training process and Green Key’s products. Everyone on our team goes through training, even if they have healthcare experience.
What sets Green Key apart from other staffing agencies?
When I first came here, we were super small and boutique, but now we’re bigger. But what I love about Green Key is that it still feels personable. Even though we’ve grown tremendously, we’ve maintained our boutique feel. It really sets us apart from other firms.
I also applaud the marketing team. In the last couple years, they’ve created an outreach we didn’t have previously. Now that we’re mostly remote, it’s nice to have this additional sense of community and put names to faces.
What have your goals been since you made Principal?
I want to continue to make the Partners proud and keep billing. I’ve helped a lot with the evolution of Salesforce and the Partners rely on me for that. As a Principal, I would like to remain a resource for them. I have a keen eye and I’m able to catch things from other perspectives.
