Matt’s Story

Pharmaneek was growing faster than they could find qualified new hires, and they didn’t have the financial security to fulfill their immediate need. Because of this instability, their company began to struggle, and the small business entered into a state of urgency.

In an attempt to fix their problem, Matt Hamm, Director of Operations for Pharmaneek, reached out to peers and posted online ads in hopes of drawing the attention of experienced candidates. Unfortunately, the only applicants were underqualified, and Pharmaneek was back at square one. As a small company, they were becoming discouraged they would reach the end of the road as their business was expanding faster than they were able to fulfill the need.

Todd Crockett, EmployIndy’s Business Solutions Manager, came and spoke about how EmployIndy exists to help small businesses grow and succeed through hiring and financial assistance. This was exactly what Matt had been searching for! Since developing Pharmaneek’s relationship with EmployIndy, Matt has hired three people, received financial support, and is continuing to contact EmployIndy for assistance in filling new positions.

“The impact I have seen is that we were able to get good qualified people to help grow our business, and during the growth, finances are always being shortened. With the financial assistance, this allowed us to add the people when we were growing and not have to wait until the money came in and work shorthanded for months.”

Emily’s Story

Sharpen was looking to hire hardworking, skillful, and qualified employees. Although they had many applicants, as a small business, they didn’t want to take risks with anyone who did not have the experience they requested. Initially, Emily Wolfington, Director of HR at Sharpen, reached out to Eleven Fifty in hopes of finding the talent they needed to confidently secure positions within their company. Unfortunately, the candidates they interviewed did not have the skills they desired.

While Emily was searching for future employees, she was connected with Brent Shopp. Brent was the Director of Career Services for Eleven Fifty and recommended Emily reach out to EmployIndy for business assistance with hiring qualified candidates. After researching EmployIndy, Emily said, “It was too good to be true,” and then she connected with the Business Solutions team.

Through the Business Solutions team, Emily was shocked at the simplicity of the process and the flexibility of the recruiters. Shortly after she reached out, she was connected with qualified applicants who met Sharpen’s talent requirements.

Since the meeting with EmployIndy, Sharpen has hired one person and has several currently going through the hiring process. They have also become more open to candidates whom they may not have initially considered because of the success they have seen through utilizing the EmployIndy program.
