Associate of the Year 2018

Today was an exciting day at Hollister Staffing as Josh Cogdell, Recruiting Manager for our Temp Admin division, was named 2018’s Associate of the Year!

Voted on each year by the Hollister team, this award goes to someone who truly embodies Hollister’s core values, both inside the office and out in the community.

Those who nominated Josh for this award all spoke enthusiastically about his optimistic attitude, saying that his presence in the office sets the pace not only for the Temp Admin team, but for everyone at Hollister.

Rarely seen without a smile on his face or a phone to his ear, Josh’s strong work ethic and passion for recruiting have not gone unnoticed by his coworkers.

“He has made it his best practice to recruit candidates on his personal time,” said Sarah Coughlin, Director of Talent & Development. “Whether on a train, in an uber, or at a festival, Josh is constantly recruiting.”

Josh’s passion for connecting people also extends past office walls. He has created a monthly “Thursday Night Out,” where he plans an event each month for Hollister employees to gather and have fun outside of work.

“Internally and externally, Josh is a connector,” said Kip Hollister. “He is a valuable asset to this company."

Josh humbly accepted his award, which includes a spot on this year’s sales trip to Mexico, and expressed his gratitude to Kip and his coworkers for all of their support throughout his career.

“I’m lucky to love what I do and am thankful to work with such a great group of people,” he said.
