If we could clone a Hero of Hiring, Steve Browne would have to be at the top of the list. Steve is the Vice President of HR at LaRosa’s, Inc. What makes him worthy of being the Hiring Hero of the Week? Steve spends his days positively impacting those around him. When I get the chance to eat at a LaRosa’s pizzeria, I experience Steve’s influence in the quality of the people who work there (plus the pizza is amazing). Everywhere you look, be it online or at an HR event, Steve is there, supporting and guiding and cheering on the community. If that weren’t enough, he serves as a Director-at-Large on the SHRM Board of Directors and is the author of HR on Purpose: Developing Deliberate People Passion. Thank you Steve for the heroic work you do every 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.
