Enter our HR Director. She reports to the president, which I value and encourage because human resource is the most important function in any organization. Bar none. She found a set of policies regarding employment benefits that had grown over time, and as you might expect, each was slightly different in implementation.

She brought order and consistency to those policies, and in doing so, made her life simpler while making our company and world better.
