PHOENIX, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Honolulu based Remedy Intelligent Staffing Franchise Owner, Kristi Yanagihara, has been awarded the prestigious Above and Beyond Award at the recent EmployBridge Franchise Conference.
"Kristi sets a great example in all that she does both within her business and in the way she helps others," said Steve Mills, Franchise Division President of EmployBridge. "It's quite amazing how she manages to juggle the demands of a staffing business, with a young family and all her charitable work." In addition to running a successful branch Kristi finds time in her busy schedule to serve as the following:
- Board Chair of the YWCA Oahu
- Board Member of the Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Chair of the Women's Diversity Initiative Committee
- Board Member of Goodwill Industries of Hawaii
- Board Member of Punahou School Alumni Association
- Member of Vistage
- Hongwanji Mission School PTO Vice President
- Serves as a Mentor at Shidler College of Business
She also spearheads fundraising efforts for:
- Fundraising Co-Chair for Annual Leader Luncheon fundraising event for YWCA
- Fundraising Co-Chair for Punahou School 20th Reunion Celebration (Ku'u Punahou)
All of this work is despite her day job owning and operating a busy Remedy staffing agency in the Honolulu financial district.
"I guess if you want something done, ask a busy person!" says Kristi. "One of the many reasons I enjoy my business so much is that it allows me to give back within my community. When you also consider that we provide work for Associates with our clients, we are able to help many local people. It makes every day very rewarding."
Steve adds, "Kristi runs one of our very best operations nationally, providing office, commercial and clerical staff to large and small clients alike. We're proud she chooses to partner with us and look forward to many more successful years."
