Betty Austin

OKC Oklahoma Operations

She has been in the staffing industry since Hancock Staffing in 2011 in the Oklahoma City Area leaving there as the Assistant Manager.  In 2016, she became the Operations Manager for Command Center. The reason she stays in this industry is simple- the people. She has a Master’s Degree in Human Relations (MHR)- The fact that the staffing industry is trifold makes her feel that every day we can meet the needs of all involved- the worker, the client, and G1 Staffing- the biggest accomplishment a person can give is themselves to others.
