EXECUTIVE: Yvette Hernandez, Vice President of Staffing for GoodSource Staffing Services
LOCATION: Headquartered in Orlando, FL
Yvette Hernandez has more than 30 years of human resource and staffing experience, having worked in HR management roles for multi-national media companies such as MTV Networks Latin America and Discovery Channel, and for international staffing and recruiting firms including Olsten, Randstad and Spherion. She also served as vice president of membership for the Volusia/Flagler Chapter of the Society of Human Resources Management from 2011-2014. Hernandez joined Goodwill Industries of Central Florida in November 2014 to start and launch GoodSource Staffing Services, LLC. GoodSource’s focus is to assist homeless and housing insecure individuals in finding jobs. The organization started operating in April 2015 and has placed more than 650 people in jobs in Central Florida.
GoodSource is making an impact in the community. It has partnered with the city of Orlando and, most recently, Seminole County, to provide job opportunities to individuals who are housing insecure, long-term unemployed or have other barriers to employment. Several of these positions have turned into full-time jobs for the individuals who have been placed. GoodSource helps people realize their full potential, provides employers in Central Florida with an optimum workforce and strengthens the community in the process.
According to The Bureau of Labor Statistics, Central Florida is the fourth-largest growing metro area for temporary jobs. Industries experiencing this growth include hospitality, tourism, technology and health care. GoodSource is here to meet that demand. In November 2017, GoodSource opened its second office in DeLand to serve the greater West Volusia County region, its residents and businesses. The organization will continue to promote economic growth, making it a “Win-Win-Win” for the communities it serves: Good for the Employees, Good for the Employers and Good for the Community.
Hernandez has a passion for building lives that work, and she connects those she serves to productive jobs and sources of income. She enjoys spending her free time with her family, traveling and studying Latin American and European trends and culture.
