CHANGE AGENT Human Resources Grad Lands Multiple Job Offers

ANDIE’S ADVICE • If you want to be an HR professional, this class is vital. • You have to show you have a knowledge base because the laws are always changing. • Just having a degree doesn’t show what you can do. • Having the certification tells people that you have the ability to do the job.

A

With nearly two decades of

industry experience under her belt, Andrea “Andie” Hill discovered her human resources credentials had lapsed. When her employer offered to pay her continuing education expenses to help secure the industry’s most relevant credentials, she seized the opportunity. After receiving a Course catalog in the mail, she immediately registered for our Human Resources Management SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP certificate program. “The class exceeded my expectations,” Hill said. “It was fun, thought provoking and engaging.” Citing convenience and location, Hill enrolled for the program’s Saturday course offering held at KSU Center. “That’s what I love about KSU – it’s very flexible,” she said. “They make it easier on your life to work, go to school and have a family.” Hill’s class was instructed by the highlyrespected Lisa Hughes. A KSU instructor since 2012, Hughes possesses extensive knowledge of the field and recently served as the Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM) president of its Atlanta chapter.

That’s what I love about KSU – it’s very flexible. They make it easier on your life to work, go to school and have a family. Andie Hill, Human Resources Graduate

JANUARY - MARCH 2018 // 470-578-6765 // ccpe.kennesaw.edu

“Lisa is a great instructor,” Hill said. “She’s actively involved in the HR community and a good voice for HR. Her class was experiential and provided real-life examples that helped put the course material into perspective.” “It is always a pleasure having dedicated students like Andie in the program,” Hughes said. “Andie’s commitment to the HR profession is clearly visible and she has a great future ahead of her!” Expanding further on the course, Hill said, “It’s easy to get mired down in the day-to-day tasks of the job. This class helped you take a step back and gain a new perspective of the industry as a whole. We learned that everything isn’t task-based and to have a stronger appreciation of the role HR plays in business and the value of the industry.” Hill previously worked as an HR representative for a nonprofit company before branching out as a national consultant. After successfully completing the class, she passed the senior certification exam. As a result, she received two senior-level job offers with prominent Atlanta companies. Passionate for establishing a positive change in the work environment, Hill mentioned several concerning statistics that have sparked her cause. “Sixty-five percent of employees are passively looking for another job,” she said. “That means two-thirds of your workforce is dissatisfied. Something’s wrong. I want to stop that. I want people to be happy and fulfilled. “I want to change the way HR functions,” Hill continued. “I want people to enjoy their jobs. I like that the HR aspect adds value to companies, but I want to make it known that HR is an integral part of business. I want to find a way to make HR about people again. The more you value people and take care of them, the more they will give.”

The Labyrinth - A Walking Meditation Price: $49 Dates: 02/21/2018 1 Session(s) Wed 1PM - 4PM // 3 Hrs // Instructor(s): Chris Beam The labyrinth, known to be at least 4,000 years old, has been used by many cultures, countries, and faiths around the world. It is a walking meditation on a spiral path leading to a central point, and then back out again. Like the spiral found in nature, such as the conch shell, the pine cone, or the rose blossom, the labyrinth is also a curving line around a central point, symbolizing movement, growth, change, and providing a continually shifting perspective that is inspiring and life-renewing. Walking a labyrinth is a

metaphor for life - the path shifts in unexpected ways, sometimes away from your goal, but ultimately leading to the center. It is a powerful meditation tool, helping to quiet the mind and allowing time for personal reflection. Learn about the labyrinth, walk a large canvas labyrinth, and center yourself in quietness and reflection in this class hosted by a Veriditas Trained and Certified Labyrinth Facilitator. Extended labyrinth walk, meditation and journal writing time from 3-4 p.m.
