LLoyd’s 2018 Staffing Associates of the Year (Part 3 of 3)

As 2018 draws to a close, we want to thank all of our Associates for their commitment to being LLoydEmployed. Your efforts at are client companies have helped to establish LLoyd’s high level of service excellence. This year we named three “Associates of the Year” who were selected by their Talent Community based on work ethic, performance and client feedback. These are individuals who worked for us in a temporary or consulting capacity during the 2018 calendar year.

FIRST A WORD ABOUT “TEMPING” OR CONTINGENT TALENT
Temporary positions cross all industry sectors and professions, and the majority are actually full-time. These jobs also can lead to permanent work, according to the American Staffing Association (ASA). In fact, permanent employment is a top motivation for choosing temporary work, and one in five Associates cite scheduling flexibility as a key reason for choosing to temp or do consulting work, according to the ASA Staffing Employee Survey.

Here are some LLoyd Staffing metrics for LLOYD’S temporary workforce:

  • 49% of new associates are referrals
  • More than 1,000 associates have been “LLoydEmployed” 2 years or longer
  • 26% of our assignments transition temp-to-hire
  • Over 15% of assignments are extended due to superior associate performance

Three Associates are chosen annually for these Talent Communities:  NY/LI Metro, IT/National and FL/LLoydSouth. Congratulations to our three winning Associates who each received a Certificate of Honor, a silver LLoyd logo pin and a Visa Gift card, along with our full appreciation for being “LLoydEmployed.”  

Look for one of our winners to be profiled throughout the week.  We will be highlighting their stories individually in the LLoyd blog.  We are proud to partner with employers nationwide on their talent strategies and we thank those who contributed their thoughts and recommendations for our selection of the 2018 Honorees.

LLoyd IT Consulting Associate Honoree:
Tomas Ochoa, JavaScript Animator
Bronx, New York

Tomas Ochoa has been working with LLoydIT for a little more than one year in a JavaScript Animator consulting role with Cifico, an independent software provider based in Melville, NY. Perhaps the best way to describe the work that Tom is doing at this client is that he’s creating an animation engine that converts “lackluster” and “complicated” financial concepts into easy-to-understand visuals. That’s no easy task!

Tomas was born and raised in Washington Heights, NYC and currently resides in the Bronx. Each day he makes the reverse commute from New York City out to Long Island and his LLoyd team cites his dedication and commitment as one of the reasons behind his selection for this award. Originally, the position was conceived as a remote opportunity, but Tomas enjoys being onsite. He is quite creative which was one of the reasons he was so drawn to this project when it was presented to him. The ability to use his creativity in free reign appealed to him from the onset.

Tom went to Bergen Community College for his Associates in Computer Science and ultimately graduated from SUNY Oneonta majoring in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics. In his free time, Tom plays a lot of basketball and video games. He’s a suffering Knicks fan, but thankfully, the pain of being so is offset by his Yankees fandom!

When asked about Tom’s work at Cifico, Rick Indelicato III, Founder and CEO said, “Tom is a pleasure to work with, his skill set has tripled in a year, his dedication for our company rivals mine; all of which make a business owner able to sleep better at night.”
