Design and deliver development programs aligned with the company’s strategic talent needs, and prepare our managers to help employees be successful as their responsibilities expand due the growth in the business.
  • Employee Relations: Recommend and implement employee relations programs to foster a positive employee/employer relationship and promote a high level of employee morale, productivity, engagement and retention.

Within Human Resources, build and lead an outstanding team of human resources functional experts who have sufficient talent to scale with the growth of business.
