Human Resources is Now People Team

People Team Why change the name?


Traditional HR departments, which have been around for 40 years, have long been focused on ensuring compliance and decreasing liability for the organization. While this is important, our company made an investment in HR to maximize the value of our employees and drive business results.


What does maximize the value of our employees mean?


It means a renewed focus on talent acquisition, employee onboarding, talent management, employee development, total rewards, employee experience, culture, and internal communications.


Over the past year, there has been an increased awareness of where we are going, through the rollout of our Strategic Priorities. Additionally, we are focusing on employee engagement, internal communications, and creating an inspiring culture through our Mission and Values.


What's next?


While this shift will be a journey, our transformation has begun and we look forward to partnering with you along the way!

 

All the best,

Julie Hoagland
