I worked with Heather on several matters, ranging from the structuring of a reduction in force to a complete overhaul of employment policies that took into account the culture the company sought to promote. Heather’s recommendations resulted in modifications to practices that ultimately opened channels of communication between the workforce and management, and increased morale.
Heather was a true Business Partner who worked closely with me to build a stronger engaged workforce within my region, as well as, throughout the company. Heather was tasked with strategizing and executing human capital programs which went deep into the company’s culture and process change. One significant event was an acquisition in my region, in which together, we successfully integrated all acquired employees with 100% retention. Any organization would benefit from her insight and ability to design, lead and execute complex projects.
She designed and executed HR programs which aligned to the company vision/strategy, engaged the workforce by empowering them to act as an “owner” and reduced cost in multiple areas, such as payroll and benefits. She aligned our resources for optimal effectiveness both on the manufacturing floor and all departments throughout our organization. Heather’s efforts positively impacted our culture, improved moral, attracted top talent and built trust throughout our company. Her talent programs continue to support our people and are the foundation we build on. Heather is passionate about what she does and the people she works with which is why she is successful.
Heather was able to redesign the back office operations so that we could take on/manage more business. We have reduced debt, increased cash flow and track operational data to make better business decisions. Heather implemented great employee focused programs which has shifted our culture in a way that employees have more pride in the work they do, stronger teamwork and a true understanding of their own impact to the business. I welcome the day we work together again.
