Lessons in leadership: Kristy Hesse

first_img continue reading » Kristy Hesse is the chief human resources officer of Community First Credit Union($3.6B, Appleton, WI), a position she has held since March 2019. Here, she answers Callahan’s leadership questions about her credit union’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. Between the beginning of 2020 and now, how have your operations changed?Kristy Hesse: Wisconsin had a Safer at Home order, not a complete Stay at Home. We moved to remote work, and branch lobbies were open by appointment only. We leveraged DocuSign and other virtual capabilities. We’re all getting to be experts on Zoom, Teams, and WebEx.I oversee human resources and training, and although we briefly paused some training and development, we didn’t stop recruiting at all. We held remote interviews, and when we conducted new employee orientation, we did as much of the onboarding virtually as we could. What we couldn’t do virtually we moved to an empty office where we could control the number of people in the room, adhere to social distancing rules, and take frequent breaks to sanitize hands and surfaces.We decided it was more important to plan for the future by hiring talent than it was to control for operating expenses. It was a leap of faith, but we made the leap. ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Northampton draw Leinster in cup

first_img Saracens will face four-time Heineken Cup winners Toulouse, Connacht and Italian side Zebre in Pool three, while Aviva Premiership champions Leicester appear to have been given a favourable draw against Ulster, Montpellier and Treviso. Clermont, who topped the French championship at the end of the normal season and were runners-up to Toulon in last season’s competition, will meet Harlequins, Scarlets and Racing Metro in the only pool with two French teams. Meanwhile, in Pool 6, two-time champions Munster will face Perpignan, who return to the premier European competition after a two-year absence, Edinburgh and Gloucester. Northampton, who lost out to Leinster in the 2011 final at Cardiff, have also drawn French Top 14 champions Castres and RaboDirect PRO12 side Ospreys in what looks to be the toughest pool. Reigning champions Toulon will face sides from England, Scotland and Wales as they must overcome Cardiff Blues, Glasgow and Exeter if they are to advance from Pool 2 as they bid to retain their title. Northampton will face reigning Amlin Challenge Cup champions and three-time European champions Leinster in the pool stages of next season’s Heineken Cup.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
