Company Profile

Experience is the teacher of all things. - Julius Caesar

Truex Métier is the reincarnation of Truex Associates, one of the most successful and well known staffing companies in the Bay Area during the 80s and 90s. Founded in 1983 by Mary Ann Truex and John Cullens, Truex Associates grew to 500 contract and permanent employees throughout California. Truex Associates along with its sister company, Truex Temps, were sold to a publically traded staffing company in 1998. After the sale, John and Mary Ann became involved in various venture capital and nonprofit endeavors including 6 years of research into Positive Psychology and its effect on corporate productivity. This was the most exciting of all of their ventures. Can positivity actually have an impact on the productivity and profitability of an organization?

Studies and research abound that prove scientifically and empirically that positive employees are more productive. They are more creative, more open to new ideas, more willing to take on new challenges; and it is contagious. We all know that a “bad apple” can spoil the barrel; well a “good apple” can raise the level of teamwork, cooperation, and productivity of an entire barrel; your business or department.

There are several successful companies that are helping their clients improve positivity in their existing employees; but why not recruit and hire positive employees instead of “fixing” them later? The answer is simple; few companies have the recruiting experience and the expertise in Positive Psychology required to source and evaluate positive candidates. And we all know that positive, highly productive candidates don’t fall into our laps or spend their lives searching job postings; they must be sought after.

Truex Métier is the integration of two decades of staffing experience and the power of Positive Psychology working together to assist our clients in the science of hiring positive, productive employees. As important, is our ability to test and teach your existing employees the power of positivity in their work and personal lives.
