Posting date: 11 April 2024

Harvey Nash, the leading global technology recruitment business has named Eric Maydeck, the winner of the USA & Canada Contractor of the Year Award. He is for exceeding all expectations since he joined. Eric has partnered up with principal level colleagues and is working on the most complex projects in the organization as a Harvey Nash Contractor.

Eric Maydeck, will now automatically be entered into the Global Contractor of the Year process, along with all other winners from Belgium, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland and the UK.

Working with over 11,000 active contractors each year Harvey Nash has established this award and the Global Contractor of the Year Award to recognize the value these individuals deliver to businesses and economies across the world, using their skills and experience to deliver vital projects for organizations. Eric Maydeck was selected as the country winner for USA & Canada from a pool of highly qualified and passionate nominees.

Nominated by Deborah Rawlinson, Vice President, Client Engagement and Tom Wojtowicz, Sr. Technical Recruiter, they shared Eric has made such a direct and positive impact from the start of his contract. He was invited to a special all-hands event in Montreal Canada, which is typically only designated for full-time employees. Eric has received nothing but rave reviews from his teammates and management over the past 5 months.

This is Eric's first contract opportunity throughout his 10+ year professional career. So, this was uncharted territory for him, but he has truly appreciated the entire experience so far. His level of contribution exceeds any initial expectations, and now most of his work is outside of the project he was initially brought in for.

“We always look forward to recognizing our contractor team that does such great work for our wonderful customers. At Harvey Nash USA and Canada, we do this during National Staffing Employee Week in September and then again at the early part of the year as part of our Global Contractor of the Year.

I would like to congratulate Eric for winning the USA and Canada Contractor of the Year award. We are proud to recognize Eric and the talents he has brought to our clients. He has made impacts that have led to his supporting both in the USA and Canada. Wonderful job, Eric. We appreciate you and all our talented contractors. “ Jason Pyle, Harvey Nash USA & Canada, President and Managing Director

Commenting on being named the 2024 Contractor of the Year for USA & Canada, Eric shared, 'Before working for Harvey Nash, I wasn't particularly interested in contract work. At the time, I had assumed that the only way to find a stable, fulfilling job was through direct, full-time employment. In January of this year, Tom Wojtowicz from Harvey Nash reached out to me about a contract position. I have always wanted to work at [client] because I love their mission, what they do, and what they stand for. I decided to give the process a try and a month later, after a painless and seamless interview process, I found myself accepting an offer to work a contract position as an SRE.

Starting from my first day and throughout my time at Harvey Nash and [client], I have been treated as a core [client employee]. I have never felt like an outside employee at [client] and Harvey Nash has made the contract process transparent and hassle-free. Over the last 6 months, I have had the opportunity to work on some really exciting projects, meet really fantastic people, and contribute to a cause I support to my core. I am glad I took a chance and gave contract work a try.'

Eric Maydeck will now go through as a finalist for the Global Contractor of the Year Award, the winner of which will be announced in April.
