Why did you choose to work in HR?
From early on, I always liked the idea of a career where I could be of service to people. Human Resources seemed to be a natural fit. As an HR professional, I get to help people (and their families) with one of the most important parts of their lives—their jobs.
What do you like best about your work as an HR Professional?
I like the personal touch of being readily available to help people with practically any aspect of HR, whether it’s onboarding new employees—making them feel welcome and helping them get started on the right foot—or helping longer-term employees grow through the natural life cycle of being with an organization.
What is one takeaway from your HR work experience you’d like to share with others?
My experience supporting faculty, staff, and students in a higher education setting really opened my mind to the role HR professionals can play in shaping the lives of the next generation. We HR professionals really can broaden our views beyond how HR affects the bottom line, to include the people and processes affected by various policies, labor laws, and guidelines.
