Eva Jenkins brings more than 20+ years of experience to her role as leader of VIP Staffing & VIPInnovations. With a career that had its beginnings in business and finance, she has shown companies time and again how she can pair her knowledge of business and human capital to take organizations to the next level of success.
Jenkins has earned a reputation in the Washington, D.C., area and beyond as a change agent who has analyzed and redeveloped the recruiting function for many technology companies to make it more effective and productive. Her client roster is impressive. It includes PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Cyveillance, Orbcomm, Winstar and Bell Atlantic Communications. She also served as Vice President of Human Resources for e-Satisfy.com and Director of Recruiting for DataZen.
In 2001, Jenkins started VIP Staffing because she believed she could show companies a better way to staff their organizations. Recently, she has expanded and opened up VIP Innovations which is a training and employee development consulting firm, focusing of delivering the Principles of High performance. Her business background, which includes nearly 10 years working in finance for NBC-TV in New York City, has instilled in her a unique drive to do more than merely place staff members in jobs. She is driven to connect companies and candidates in a way that increases productivity and improves financial outcomes for the businesses she serves.
In 2002, Jenkins started VIP Innovations. She noticed two things about the state of the American Workforce: a continuous need for good soft skills training, and a need for that training to be local and available. A passion for assisting people with training and offering business counseling soon developed, and she decided to combine her experience in management and training.
One of the ways Jenkins accomplishes her goals is through her strong commitment to diversity. She taps into sources that allow her to uncover candidates from all backgrounds and walks of life. She has witnessed first-hand how these differences translate into business success.
Another cornerstone of Jenkins’ success is coaching and training. She understands that the recruiting process doesn’t happen in a vacuum. She knows that staffing and recruitment, like all other business functions, must mirror an organization’s business plan and cultural focus. That’s why she offers to help companies evaluate – and sometimes redevelop – internal processes and train their employees.
Jenkins also is recognized for several other strengths:
• Recruiting for all professional levels, including the highest
• Reducing turnover of key personnel
• Working with companies such as pre-IPO startups where quick ramp-up and recruitment are key
• Using creativity and proven methodologies to build recruitment organizations
• Maximizing the benefits of technology and the resources it can provide
• Using knowledge of HR and other business functional areas that support recruiting and staffing
Jenkins is a graduate of New York University with a degree in Business Administration. She is certified in Professional Human Resources (PHR) and is a member of the Society of Human Resource Management, the Employment Management Association, the Prince William Chamber of Commerce and a member of the American Society for Training & Development. She previously served on the Board of Directors of Virginia Female Executives and was a volunteer and adult mentor to FACETS in Fairfax. She resides in Haymarket, Va.
