HEROES OF HIRING

Paula Harvey–Hiring Hero of the Week

No comments

Paula Harvey, MBA, SHRM-SCP is Vice President Human Resources for Schulte Building Systems. She also serves as a board member for the SHRM Foundation. What makes Paula a Hiring Hero? Her impact. When she joined her company turnover was 33% due to poor hiring. After training managers on proper recruiting methods turnover has been cut in half. Then there’s the veterans hiring initiative that has attracted many vets for hard-to-fill jobs. And she hasn’t stopped there. Paula instituted a hi-potentials program. 25% of the participants in this program have already been promoted, making opportunities at Schulte Building Systems even more attractive to prospective hires. What’s most impressive is that she’s accomplished all of this in just the past 36 months. Thank you Paula for the heroic work you 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.
