I hired Chris right out of college. He demonstrated quickly his ability to learn the HR function and the associated expectations. He established himself as a team player with the motivation to learn HR from the entry level role. Chris operated comfortably in a small human resources office, managing medical and other benefits for a few hundred employees of an advanced scanning technology manufacturer, including about 50 remote workers in our Birmingham satellite office.

As editor of the monthly newsletter, Chris was well connected with company initiatives, and he showed a genuine interest for technology, inside and outside of our product line. Whether helping to coordinate sexual harassment training, transferring the employee database to a new technology platform, on-boarding new hires, or recruiting for temporary positions for department heads, his heart was always with the employees. Chris is an asset to any organization he joins.
