Employee Highlight: Meet Our HR Coordinator, Hannah Boyd
15 May 2020
As we continue to face the COVID-19 situation, Skretting employees are doing their very best trying to navigate the changing work environment to ensure that our facility operates with utmost safety precautions and our feed continues to reach our customers.
It has been a challenging time for many to implement the necessary changes to the way we work but with the support of each other, we are getting through this. It is even more important to highlight the great work our employees are doing at such times!
Hannah Boyd, has played an integral part in this process. Based in our St Andrews office in New Brunswick, Hannah is our HR Coordinator and has worked with Skretting for a little over a year. In this short period of time, Hannah has quickly learned the nuances of her job in providing daily support to the East coast team in the areas of recruitment, benefit administration, HRIS data management, training, and employee engagement. And in recent light of the COVID-19 situation, Hannah was responsible for implementing the health and safety measures on the East coast.
COVID-19 & Skretting
Skretting has implemented several measures to handle COVID-19, including daily temperature checks, weekly questionnaires, and new signage. Hannah said, “PPE such as masks have been made available for employees and guidelines are in place for social distancing and disinfecting shared surfaces daily. Employees who have the tools and resources to work from home are doing so, including myself.”
She adds, that while the COVID 19 situation has brought many challenges and changes to our daily routines, the Skretting community has worked together to continue to get each job done.
“This is just one example of what a great team we have, locally and throughout North America!”
A Fulfilling workday
When asked about her idea of a fulfilling workday, Hannah said, “I love that no two days are the same and that I am faced with new challenges each day, allowing me to expand my HR knowledge and learn more about the Company.” Like many of us, planning each day brings about a checklist of tasks to strike-out at the end of the day and for Hannah too, accomplishing all of the items on that list and meeting the necessary deadlines is for certain a rewarding workday.
Having grown up in southern New Brunswick with her parents and younger brother, Hannah enjoys the beautiful outdoors of quaint seaside villages and nature and loves spending time with her friends and family. “I live on a lake where I like to skate in the winter, and swim and kayak in the summer. I also enjoy hiking and camping and New Brunswick offers all that, and more.”
