I often get asked two questions about our company: how did I find out about HCSS, and what is it like to work there? Starting with the first, I have to give major thanks to my colleague, John Cappello, and the power of social media.
Being in the Talent Acquisition realm, I admit that I have a slight addiction to LinkedIn. It’s one of many sources I use to keep up with the latest trends and connect with professionals from all over the world. When John’s status popped up on my newsfeed about the growing hiring team, I was intrigued. I’ve seen HCSS ranked on multiple “Best Companies to Work” lists since, at the time, I was part of another organization on similar lists. To make a long story short, John and I started conversing, and the rest is history.
I’m in this pretty cool situation where my role would traditionally fall under Human Resources, but I actually work under our Marketing department. I’m basically a blend between the two areas. It’s a solid fit since I’m a huge fan of the employment branding/recruitment marketing side of my field. Although my role deals more directly with people than with our suite of software products, I know that what I do makes an impact. As we continue to recruit and retain the right teammates, our company performance grows even further.
At HCSS, you’ll see at least one of the following every day: dogs running outside, people working out at the gym, a pickup game on the basketball court, someone riding down the hall on a Segway, or someone going down our indoor slide. From company-sponsored races to on-site classes on topics like budgeting and finances, your experience at HCSS stems from how involved you want to be with the variety of activities going on each day. It’s not only the fun perks that make HCSS an attractive place to work; it’s also the way we collaborate with each other and how we all align with the mission, vision, and values of the organization.
If you’re ever interested in joining an award-winning “Best Place to Work,” feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn, tweet on Twitter, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or use an out-of-the-box way of communicating (to which I’m 100 percent open). Perhaps one day when you’re part of our team and you also get asked these questions, you’ll be able to share your story.
