Doherty Values Reflected in Employees' Community Involvement

Doherty employees Ashley Vaske and Ryan Vesey accepted new positions in two local chambers of commerce this January.

Two employees of Doherty Staffing are taking on new roles in their local chambers of commerce. Ashley Vaske stepped into the role of ambassador president of the Algona, IA Chamber of Commerce and Ryan Vesey became a board member with the Jackson, MN Chamber.

As a company, Doherty Staffing is driven by its corporate values and mission statement, which reads, “We exist because of clients, employees and the communities we serve.” This is demonstrated not only in business decisions, but also through the community involvement of its employees across the upper Midwest.

Ashley Vaske, service manager with Doherty in Algona, IA, has been involved with the Algona Chamber for the past two and a half years. She began as an ambassador in 2015 and was nominated by her peers to the position of vice president ambassador in 2016. In January of 2017 Vaske formally accepted the new role of ambassador president at the annual chamber event on January 18th, 2017.

As ambassador president, Vaske organizes meetings, enforces by-laws, hosts chamber coffee events and facilitates ribbon cutting ceremonies for new businesses.

In Jackson, MN, Doherty business development manager Ryan Vesey has embraced his new role representing Doherty as a board member with the Jackson Chamber of Commerce. Vesey says the goal of the board is to support the interests of chamber members and the overall community. As a board member he helps coordinate both community and business member events, in addition to coming up with new ideas that promote member businesses.

Vesey says his favorite part of his new role is developing the community by supporting existing businesses and helping them thrive. He adds, “I also enjoy brainstorming new ways to create an inviting environment for new businesses to join the area.”
