Christina Kennedy has made an immense impact on the Hollister team since day one. She cares deeply about her work, is passionate about helping job seekers find their dream job, and brings her sense of humor to the team daily. Christina surpassed all of her goals last year despite the pandemic, which is a testament to her dedication and commitment. Beyond recruiting, she is an active participant in Book Club, our Philanthropy Committee, our DE&I Committee, and Recovery Works. Meanwhile, she is a true advocate for each person who entrusts her with their job search.

Congratulations Christina – you are a true asset to the Hollister team!

Christina exemplifies everything that Hollister stands for. She is one of the hardest working and committed Recruiters we’ve ever seen at Hollister. She goes above and beyond to hit her goals and to show up for her teammates. She takes a highly engaging, spirited, and passionate approach to every aspect of her job. She is vivacious and has a contagious positivity that spreads throughout the company.

She embodies Hollister’s values and does it all with a sense of humor and smile on her face. She is dedicated, ambitious, coachable, motivated and just has that “get it” factor. Her candidates love her, her team loves her, and she’s quickly made a lasting impact here at Hollister. It’s what she does outside of her “job description” that really makes her stand out. She is very involved in Hollister’s culture and is involved with so many cross divisional groups. She is a key member of the philanthropy committee, is part of Recovery Works, Book Club, and has become the point person and main contact for Back on my Feet and Operation ABLE. She also volunteers for resume workshops for the homeless population and workshops to disadvantaged groups, and attends DE&+I committees. She helped one of her (previously homeless) candidates win the Massachusetts Staffing Association Staffing Employee of the Year award. She doesn't just show up to these meetings, she contributes in a meaningful way and has made a huge positive impact on the company.

Christina – we’re excited to see what amazing things you are going to do in years to come at Hollister and can’t think of anyone more deserving of this year’s Associate of the Year award.
