“You must strike the balance between being an employee champion and an agent for change.”
For Sonya, people are her passion - so a role in HR suits her down to the ground! Fairness is the guiding principle in all she does; whether that’s planting the seeds of growth and watching others blossom, or being assertive or authoritative to make tough calls. When she’s not working, she loves keeping up with her family - she has two sons whom are active members of the US military (Army and Air Force)! Although they live on opposite coasts, FaceTime allows them all to stay connected.
It’s my responsibility to understand the needs of the business while helping develop and implement better ways to manage our best asset - our people. In order to be successful, you need to strike the fine balance between being an employee champion and being an agent for change. When faced with a tough situation, instead of simply saying “no,” I ask myself: “Can I solve this problem while achieving the goal and mitigating the risk?” Life is all about balance!
