Q: As HR manager at Stoltzfus Meats, what are some of your main responsibilities?
A: I am responsible for the “people stuff”. Things like insurance, 401(k), Employee Assistance Program, and our response to the pandemic. I also take care of reporting requirements to government agencies like Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Equal Opportunity Commission (EEOC). I represent Stoltzfus Meats to the Lancaster Chamber and the Lancaster Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM).
Q: What is your favorite part of your job?
A: My favorite part of Human Resources is the humans! I get to help our employees in many ways. I love interacting with employees at all of our locations. They are each unique and interesting people.
Q: Outside of work, how do you like to spend your time?
A: I enjoy time with family, playing games, traveling, and baseball, particularly the Kansas City Royals and the Lancaster Barnstormers.
