Work History
, , 09/2017 - Current

The facility which I work at manufactures structural components for the automotive industry in the areas of hot and cold stamping as well as welding.  I have full responsibility and accountability for all human resources and payroll related functions at the Goshen plant.

  • Updated key human resource metrics, including turnover and terminations, using reporting tools on the HRMS database.  This allowed the management team to have a snapshot of current trends within our plant.
  • Payroll Management:  Responsible for ensuring competitive compensation and benefit packages according to our internal policies and regulations.
    This includes a complete overhaul of our Labor Grade system.  This was a major undertaking as we have employees that were not classified correctly and employees that were also not being paid correctly.
  • Policies & Procedures: Responsible for developing HR policies and programs that address our internal and external changes and challenges.
  • Built a comprehensive employee recruiting strategy.  Utilizing staffing agencies, and direct hires.   Responsible for anticipating the recruitment needs of our plant, to ensure adequate staffing in terms of quantity and quality.  Implemented a daily open position report so we had accurate and timely oversight of our open positions.  Implemented a part-time work force which reduced our costs as we didn't have to pay benefits.  This met the needs of the workers that only wanted part time hours, and it filled our open positions that we previously had difficulty filling.
  • Developed and facilitated all new-hire orientations.  Improved the onboarding process so that it was no longer a fully manual process.  This saved the time required to bring a new team member on board.
