What will you have accomplished in your first year?

Congratulations on your one year Hirewell-versary!  You’ve become an integral part of the squad and a trusted partner to the practice teams!  One of the highlights of your first year was the development and roll out of a more robust internal Bullhorn/LinkedIn training program.  The team feels the closest to a group of super users than at any point in our history and your documented training process, regularly scheduled interactive training groups, and collaborative approach was just what we needed to take our technology and resource utilization to the next level.

You’ve absorbed a TON of information in the IT (Technology) area and have branched out to our other Practices (F&A, Human Resources, Marketing, & Sales).  Your contributions to those groups have become more tangible by the day.  

We can’t express how relieved all of us are to finally have a SME when it comes to technology acquisition and adoption.  You’ve been fearless when it comes to trying new tools to make us all better and you’ve pushed that extra mile to make sure everyone is adhering to new things, even if it’s sometimes met with a bit of resistance.  Not to worry; Jeff, Mike, Shannon, and Matt will get it someday!

Finally, that banana bread you made was a hit.  Bring more of it.  Lots more.
