Mike McGraw, Owner/Strategic-Partner

Experience:

With over 20 years’ experience in operations management, I understand the need for good employees. While at Kipper Tool, we developed a good working relationship with local staffing companies to handle the ebb and flow of our production needs. Consistently meeting the high expectations of the Department of Defense was accomplished day in and day out with contract employees.

 

The Big Picture:

Helping organizations find good people that fit their culture and add value to the product/service they deliver. Every day, we have the chance to not only fulfill our professional and personal dreams, but help others do the same.

 

The Scoop on Staffing:

The first time we had the opportunity to use staffing associates, my management staff and I were totally against it. After doing our research and having faith in others, we were delightfully surprised with the level of productivity and quality we received from the employees we contracted.

 

Secrets to Success:

Be tenacious - put every ounce of effort into making things successful. Deliver world-class customer service – it's worth it. Be positive – always look for the bright side and believe there is no such thing as a "no-win situation." Perhaps most importantly, remain humble – remember who we are, where we came from, how we got there, and those that helped along the way.

 

Stress Relief:

Spending time with the family and helping others with their problems.
