What is a typical day like working for Global CI? For me, there is no typical day but every morning I am optimistic that there will be. I normally start my day with a morning call with executive staff going over employee relations, new hires and where they are in the hiring process, and any other tasks I have on my plate for that day. Then it’s off to the races with payroll, benefit enrollments, background checks, employee communications, training, timesheets, operations meetings, employee relations, and so on.
How has your career grown since starting at Global CI? When I began working for GCI I was only performing HR functions and when our CFO stepped down I took on a lot of his functions and became even more of an asset to the company.
