Baseball Q&A with our Director of Operations

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

Luis Pablo Gallegos is no stranger to the world of baseball. Our Director of Operations shares a passion with his family around the LA Dodgers baseball team. Walk up to him and you’ll be talking for hours and hours if you bring up one of baseball’s oldest brands.

We picked his brain on what the arrival of the Chihuahuas mean for the local baseball scene.

How important is the image of a mascot to the success of a baseball team?

At the end of the day, if the team does well and they put on a good show, the mascot could become insignificant. But during start up it is very important .It’s important that the fans identify with the team, the biggest link is the mascot and it should represent the city and the fans. I feel the owners could have taken in to consideration the feedback from the fans.

Do you think there could have been a better mascot for El Paso’s first triple AAA team?

Definitely, considering the history with the missions and the fact that the team is a farm team for the Padres, they could have gone with Missions or Fryers. Maybe a nod to El Paso baseball past with Sun Devils.


Will you be supporting El Paso’s baseball team? Why or why not?

I will definitely be supporting the team. Triple A is one step below the majors, we have an opportunity to see some great baseball and put El Paso on the national sports scene. Every El Pasoan needs to support this team, whether they agree with the mascot or not.

‘Chihuahuas Unveiled’: What does it mean for El Paso?

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

Have the marketing minds behind the El Paso Chihuahuas hit a home run or struck out with the unveiling of a new brand in the Sun City?

On Tuesday, October 22, the official mascot and team name of our city’s first Triple-A baseball was announced and met with mixed reviews. Hundreds gathered for the official press event where the logo and mascot were revealed, but it was on social media where El Pasoan’s let ‘the dog’ out.

 

 

At H.G. Arias, we take care of our brand. Over the summer, we revamped who we were online and on our social media channels. So we got to thinking: what went into the Chihuahuas’ brand? Here’s a sneak peek at what goes into the birthing a brand into the Sun City.

 

 

So what do you think? Are you a fan of the new team name and mascot?

Staffing Employee of the Year

Saturday, September 21st, 2013

Between September 10 – 16, the U.S.  honored the work done by one of the fastest-growing segments of the workforce, and one that has become a pillar for companies: Temporary workers.

National Staffing Employee Week  noted the many contributions America’s temporary and contract workers make to the country, and provide opportunities for these workers to connect with their communities, local media stations, clients and other talent.

Beatrice Wiles with HG Arias & Associates Recruiting and Retention Manager, Frank Chavira.

As part of the week long celebration, the American Staffing Association has named the 2013 National Staffing Employee of the year, a title that goes to an employee who goes above and beyond what is expected in a temp position.

HG Arias & Associates, LP named Beatrice Wiles, an Administrative Assistant, as its 2013 Staffing Employee of the year. Beatrice has been on assignment with staffing partner Monica McGowan since September 2011.

We thank Beatrice as well as all of our temporary and contract employees for their contributions. Temp workers have been making their mark on the American economy for decades, but in the last few years, the penetration rate of temp workers has risen tremendously, and is currently at its highest level in five years. What’s more, experts expect this number to continue to rise as staffing firms continue to help employers through tough economic times.
