This morning, I had the opportunity to see a well-known HR professional address her peers. Our topic of discussion centered around the negative mindset that present day HR departments conjure up. What once was a valuable resource to the workforce has now become the equivalent of heading to the principal’s office. Mid-way through her presentation, she gave us the opportunity to chat with our table partners, and share frustrations. I listened intently to a group of passionate people earnest about using their role to enhance the human capital initiatives, while moving the company’s business goals forward.
As my marketing and events internship at the Buffalo Niagara Partnership is reaching its end, I can’t help but to reflect on this valuable experience. This was my first job in an actual professional environment so I was extremely unsure about what it would be like day-to-day and how to act amongst professionals. That being said, it didn’t take long to get comfortable in the office thanks to the kindness and sincerity of everyone whom I interacted with. I immediately felt welcomed and like part of the team.
