Amy Ruth is the Senior Vice President, Human Services Group and Chief Human Resource Officer of Florida Blue, a Guidewell Company. Amy is this week’s Hiring Hero because of her pioneering work in making HR a strategic business partner for her company. She has created an HR function focused on driving business outcomes and has aligned her talent acquisition team more closely to the business. This alignment is part of a talent strategy for actively pipelining talent before jobs open and filling openings with greater speed and accuracy (an impressive undertaking for a company that employs more than 6,700 people).
Thank you Amy for the heroic work you and your team do each day!

ABOUT THE HEROES OF HIRING
We’ve all heard it said that a company’s most important asset is its people. When we say we love a company, what we’re really saying is we love the work being done by the exceptional people in these organizations. Talented employees who do outstanding work are the secret ingredients that make their companies great. That’s why recruiting and hiring is so important. Each person involved in the hiring process is influencing the future of their company. These individuals are also impacting one of the most important aspects of people’s lives—their careers. The individuals who play a role in the hiring process are changing companies and lives, making hiring a heroic act.
The hiring heroism of a select group of people goes above and beyond. These unsung hiring heroes are making a lasting difference on a grand scale. That’s the reason for this distinction—the Hiring Hero of the Week. The hope in bestowing this honor is that people across the globe can celebrate and learn from these truly amazing human beings.
