Paige Owen has joined Greensboro, N.C.-based Go-Forth Pest Control, which was recently named one of North Carolina’s Best Places to Work, a TBJ Fast 50 company, and a member of Inc.’s Top 5000. She has taken the newly created position of talent acquisition director.
In a news release, Go-Forth answers why a pest control company would need a career recruiter: “As an essential business providing services that contribute to the health, sanitation and standard of living for many homeowners and businesses, there is a steady need for a variety of roles and opportunities available at Go-Forth Pest Control. These include front-line field employees who are performing the actual services, as well as executive, administrative and customer support teams who work in the office or, during the pandemic, remotely.”
Owen holds a bachelor degree in human services and psychology, and has several years of experience with social services. In recent years, she has become a Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst, gathering corporate training, recruitment, and a philosophy of having all employees reach their highest potential through education, encouragement and empowerment. Owen is also a Certified Personal Trainer and is currently working on additional health and wellness certifications.
“I have a servant’s heart; it’s one of my strengths and also one of the reasons I came on board with Go-Forth,” she said in the news release. “Our core values sync with a similar mission: to find others who love to serve our community and each other.”
Chase Hazelwood, Go-Forth Pest Control’s third-generation owner and CEO, noted in the news release, “We are so proud and motivated by our continued growth. But along with that growth comes some hiring challenges – finding the right people, quickly, while providing the necessary on-boarding support they need to not only succeed, but also enjoy their work, so they remain a team member for the long term… We’re confident that adding Paige to our team will help us become better at identifying those people who will be successful at Go-Forth, and provide a structure for how we can foster our company’s culture with not only the new hires, but our entire team.”
