"Keeping up with the depth and breadth of the human resources field is a fascinating challenge requiring vigilance and commitment. Every day, my team and I have the chance to positively impact the employee experience, the bottom line, and the organization as a whole. What could be more motivating than applying one's energy, expertise, and experience to daily challenges and seeing the successful results?
