Riverside-Corona Express Franchisee Receives International Staffing Company’s Spiritual Leadership Award
Palbinder Badesha Named Express Employment Professionals Ralph Palmen Award Recipient
California Express Employment Professionals franchise owner Palbinder Badesha has been named the company’s 2021 recipient of the Ralph Palmen Spiritual Leadership Award.
Badesha was recently presented the award at the staffing company’s annual International Leadership Conference (ILC).
The international award is named in honor of the late Ralph Palmen, who made a tremendous impact on the growth and development of Express through his leadership and spiritual guidance. The award honors an individual who inspires others and always does the right thing.
Before investing in the Riverside-Corona, California, Express office, Badesha’s first job out of university was to establish a refuge for women fleeing domestic violence, and she later went on to develop policies and projects to support homeless women. In her last position, she led a team focused on building sustainable communities by ensuring local people and businesses were partners in tackling high unemployment and urban deprivation.
Badesha is passionate about giving back to her community and is active in many local organizations, including the Corona Chamber of Commerce, Business Resource Connection and Corona-Norco United Way.
“Palbinder is genuinely amazing, generous, empathetic and a true friend,” Express CEO Bill Stoller said. “She lives the Express values and her spirituality shines through in her day-to-day interactions. Others want to be around her due to her warm and welcoming spirit, and she always makes each individual feel like they are the most important person in the room.”
For others’ birthdays, Badesha makes a point to learn what they value and during challenging times, she is known to make personal calls to colleagues to celebrate wins or offer support.
“Palbinder is always willing to share her story in hopes that it will inspire others,” Stoller added. “She is inspiring not only in business but in life as well. She is the type of leader and person the rest of us aspire to be.”
