The team dynamic here is very strong with lots of collaboration on ideas. This environment inspires me to continue to learn and grow with lots of support and encouragement from my team. I’m super passionate about human resources because it is the mainline to all the people in the company. I’ve been with Verisys for six months now and feel like I’ve landed in a great place.
Tell us a little bit about you.
I am from Chicago and moved out to Utah six years ago. Since moving to Utah, I worked at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals for five and a half years, earned my master’s degree, and advanced HR certification. I have experience working in payroll for over seven years and have used the ADP Workforcenow Product for several of those years.
What will people find you doing when you’re not issuing payroll?
I like to have fun. One of the things I get a kick out of is rapping about our benefits, payroll, and the good that Verisys brings to health care in the #freestylefridays slack channel.
What is your favorite thing about working at Verisys?
The people. Since starting, I have been able to meet and work with people through their personal struggles or successes which creates strong bonds. I feel honored that people trust me and my team to support them and answer their payroll and benefits questions. Verisys is friendly and caring from top down while rewarding for results.
What has surprised you the most about working at Verisys?
I enjoy that I can bring my true self to work. I care and I post about our mental health benefits regularly so I can do my part to end the stigma. I enjoy Freestyle Fridays and allowing my creativity to let loose on important topics.
What does a day in the life of your position look like?
Each day is different! Earlier in the week, I focus on payroll and run reports to ensure that it is accurate when they are paid out. I often answer people’s questions on benefits or help get them started with a leave of absence.
What is the best career lesson you have learned so far?
I read a book called, “The Ultimate Team Player” where it cited the qualities of being hungry, humble, and smart as crucial skills. I encourage everyone to be great team players but also servant leaders. Everyone has the opportunity to serve those around them.
What’s the best advice you could give to someone who is just starting their career?
Ask questions and don’t be afraid to fail. It’s by failing forward that we have learning opportunities that help us in our career and shape us.
