    HRExaminer Radio: Adam Ochstein, Founder of StratEx

    in Business

    StratEx is a Chicago-based Employee Lifecycle Management company (ELCM) that has been in business since 2003. Its mission is to provide cost-effective HR solutions for small to mid-size businesses, and does this by automating administrative burden through the Employee Lifecycle, mitigating the risk of employee-related issues, and assisting in the management of the Employee Lifecycle. 


    Adam Ochstein founded StratEx after seeing a gap in the marketplace. At the time, payroll companies were happy slugging it out with each other and the leased employee space (PEO’s) served a nice niche for smaller companies. There was nobody who offered a SaaS solution that automated in a paper-free fashion for applicant tracking, onboarding, benefits administration, performance management, time and labor management and payroll. So Ochstein decided to build a platform that managed the entire employee lifecycle with one database. Since inception, Ochstein has led StratEx from a concept to one of the industry's elite Employment Lifecycle service companies focusing on the small and mid-sized business market. 


    Ochstein is a proven sales and management executive who has run both startup and large scale organizations in all aspects of technology for close to twenty years. Prior to StratEx, Adam held senior sales management positions with numerous technology startups.

    Gotham Talk Podcast Show #17 - "Red Hood" Ep. 17 Season 1

    in Television

    A crew of five Irish American bank robbers heists up a bank with concealment over their faces and with their leader wearing a red hood, stealing from the bank itself and dispersing some of the money to ensure their escape. When Gordon and Bullock speak to the bank's employees, they realize this was a pro job and they had scouted the place last week to determine their timing. Tracking down one of the thieves from security footage, they find the crew leader Gus Floyd (Michael Goldsmith) dead and his hood gone, taken by Clyde Destro (Jonny Coyne), the new leader. Meanwhile, Oswald's is still struggling from its unsavory clientele especially once it runs out of alcohol which is sold to the club by Maroni. So Butch has cops on his payroll seize much of Maroni's supply for Cobblepot, establishing an uneasy trust between the two. The Red Hood Gang hits another bank using the same MO. With the assistance of a witness, Gordon and Bullock track down Destro, finding him wounded by a third member who took the mask and became leader. Fish meets with the prison's unnamed manager (Jeffrey Combs) as his boss, the Dollmaker, is currently away. As the manager tries to take her eyes for transplant, Fish removes her own left eye and destroys it to keep it out of their hands before passing out.

    Necessary Job Search Techniques To Get Hired in 30Days

    in Goals

    Need a job? Believe you are doing all the right things? You're doing what you did that last time you didn't have a job, back in 2003. Job search changes based on supply and demand. Job search is looking for a needle in a haystack.  Yes, internet changed job search but job search is about much more than the internet. Yes, you can make immediate contact across the street, across the nation, or in another country but that don't sell by itself. Think that 90degree angle you do daily will get you a super great job? Nope! You are dead wrong. If you have been unemployed more than 90 days, and you have been doing job search, I ask if you have a job. If you have no job you don't know how to job search. You need a manager to help you reach your objective. That manager would be me. I'm Bea! I do 30 day readiness workshops. Tell me what a day of job search is like and I'll put you on someone's payroll in 30days or less.
