Tell us about your employer and your role. 

 

SAFE is a not for profit Credit Union.  In addition to banking services, we are passionate about supporting our community!  We promote volunteerism, supporting schools and nonprofits. SAFE is the leader in supporting our region’s businesses with employee financial wellness through SAFE@work.  My role as Affiliate Relationship Manager is to improve the health and vitality of this regions employees. I do this by finding no cost solutions designed to minimize financial distraction while improving your employees’ financial health.

 

 What are some challenges you see in your role or in the HR profession today?

 

 Today more employees are anxious about their financial lives. They are concerned about saving for retirement, financing college, debt, and tackling medical expenses. All that worry , or financial distraction, contributes to productivity losses, increased absences, healthcare claims and high turnover.

 

 How has SAHRA helped you in your professional growth?

 

 Through SAHRA,  I am able to interface with caring Human Resource professionals, who want the best for their employees.  I am constantly learning about the contributions, roles and challenges of those in HR.  This knowledge allows me to be creative and sensitive as we develop further no cost SAFE@work offerings.

 

What do you hope to get out of being on the SAHRA Board?

 

 The opportunity to share resources that can improve the lives of our regions employees.         

 

 What is one fun fact your colleagues may not know about you?

 

 I have a BA in Fine Art.
