I can answer questions regarding how to effectively mentor, coach or counsel employees and managers, when you should terminate an employee or put them on a performance plan, discuss performance management reviews and what should be included in those reviews, how to improve communication amongst managers and employees and share effective "teambuilding" ideas. I have 11 1/2 years experience as a Human Resources Manager and truly enjoy working with all levels of employees and helping to resolve conflict, help all levels of employees embrace change in an organization or position employees and managers for promotions or pay increases within their company.
I have 14 years of Human Resources Management experience in several different industries such as retail, financial services, insurance and legal. I have provided HR support for over 300 employees and also provided HR support to external clients with one of my previous law firms. I am an expert in the areas of hiring, recruiting, conflict resolution, change management, executive management and employee compensation, performance management evaluations and policy and procedure implementation. I have provided employee relations support to managers and employees, conducted complaint and compliance investigations, coached managers in employee conflict management and counseled employees toward problem resolution.
