The Pink Hard Hat Story

Sonya Hopson’s career experience in staffing started in the manufacturing staffing industry. In 2008, her career goals shifted into construction staffing and she found a lot of her time being spent on construction sites. Safety was a priority for Sonya, but she also wanted to look stylish while doing so.

One of her clients helped her come up with a solution that would fit both criteria. From then on, you would not see Sonya at a construction site without her iconic pink hat. She fondly became known as “The Lady with the Pink Hard Hat.”

When starting her own company focusing on job recruitment in construction and manufacturing, Sonya realized the importance of creating a brand for her staff to adhere to. To pay homage to the client that played a vital role in teaching her about the construction industry, she continued the use of the Pink Hard Hat. The Pink Hard Hat has become synonymous with the family atmosphere created by Sonya and her team at HIRE Strategies.

The HIRE Strategies Way

Ours is a competitive industry. Good is never good enough and great is the standard of every other company like ours. But we don’t accept great because that’s not how we do things around here. We did not get to be a leader in our market by being great. We got here by being exceptional. We don’t do short cuts, excuses nor broken promises. We do excellence. It’s who we are and how we do business.

When we say “We stand behind every placement everyday” we mean we treat every client like it’s our only client. We operate from standards of excellence to ensure that only the candidates who are uniquely qualified to fill a role are selected for consideration. We use a rigorous candidate selection process that enables every “i” to be dotted and every “t” to be crossed before a placement is made.

The reputation we’ve earned is because of our understanding of the market, our commitment to excellence and our responsiveness to clients. The HIRE Strategies Way is not simply the work we do, rather it’s how we choose to honor the legacy of the Pink Hard Hat.


Humility enables us to serve from the heart, lead by example and seek respect not reward.


Integrity is doing what’s right every time whether we are recognized for it or not.


Relationships are integral to our success because the foundation of our business is people.


Exceptional means delighting our clients by over-delivering on promises every chance we can.
