HR Professional with 5+ years experience focusing on compensation, recruiting, and employee relations.
I am certified as a SPHR and FPC. I also have experience as a Plan Administrator for retirement accounts; which I truly enjoyed.
I am currently the HR Administrator for The Outsource Group, Birmingham Office. My main focus is on recruiting and ensuring we select employees that fit our culture. I am always looking for new ways to improve morale and increase the amount of fun employees have at work while still keeping productivity at a maximum.
I am heavily interested in Social Media and how to incorporate it into my recruiting and selection techniques.
In October 2008, I accepted a position with The Outsource Group at their new Birmingham location. I was looking to broaden my recruiting skills and knowledge and the Birmingham office was a great opportunity.
During my stay with TOG, I have been fortunate enough to work with several nationwide offices. Most recently I assisted the California office with filling several Collector and Unit Manager positions. The heaviest recruiting has been with my office; since October 2008 we have grown from 50 employees to almost 80 with an expectation of 106 by June. I have also had the opportunity to work with a client in Ohio to fill local on site positions.
I recently attended a workshop on Predictive Index (PI) and how to screen candidates for best fit for positions as well as how to best fit the job to the candidate.
When I'm not actively recruiting, I work with our managers and Directors to resolve employee relations matters. I work closely with other HR Administrators to complete Corporate HR Objectives such as streamlining job descriptions and developing a community service program. I work with our Training Administrator on New Hire Orientation and Management Leadership Programs.
During my employment with Alabama Central Credit Union (ACCU) I had the opportunity to work in a number of positions. I started my career at ACCU as a Member Services Representative and quickly moved into an Accounting Specialist. As an Accounting Specialist I mostly worked Payroll which is how I began my career in HR.
Over the next four years, I became certified in payroll and HR. I took on the responsibilities of Plan Administrator for retirement and medical benefits. I worked with benefits reps to ensure our employees had the best benefits we could provide. I also worked with the Senior Staff to develop new policies and procedures.
The Training Manager and I developed a new hire orientation to onboard the new employees to the Credit Union culture and the ACCU way.
While at Americas First Federal Credit Union (AFFCU), I worked as a teller, head teller, loan officer and assistant branch manager. I traveled as a float teller to Birmingham area branches to cover vacancy or employees who were on leave/vacation.
