Ft. Lauderdale, FL (Jan. 11, 2021) — Anna Fazekas, Active Staffing’s Director of Human Resources, has been selected as a Mentor in the American Staffing Association’s mentorship program. As a mentor, Fazekas will work 1:1 with an assigned mentee to provide insight, knowledge, and a deeper understanding of the human resources function within the staffing industry.
“The ASA’s new mentorship program provides an ideal educational resource to all its members as we come out of the pandemic, especially since it is free and takes place virtually,” said Benny Elzweig, Active’s chief operating officer. “Matching experienced members like Anna with people who are looking to grow in their career is valuable to the individuals involved, their companies, and the industry as a whole.”
Fazekas was invited to apply for the mentorship program and selected based on her experience and expertise. “The staffing world is small and quite specialized, so we all need to help one another along the way,” she said. “I’m looking forward to working with my mentee for the next six months of the program.
“I think I’ll learn as much from her as she will hopefully learn from me,” Fazekas said. That outcome is the heart and soul of mentoring.
Fazekas joined Active Staffing in 2005. Over the years, she has continuously moved up into new roles with increased responsibility. She was named Director of Human Resources in 2015.
According to American Staffing Association research, more than two-thirds of staffing professionals agree that mentors and coaches are critical to career advancement.
