The pandemic, made companies realize that employees are not robots, they are people with feelings and opinions. The field of HR has grown so much due to it and work culture had immerged. Culture is a feeling, fueled by actions that maintain employee motivation. At Laundrylux we work hard and we make sure to have fun too! Next to compensation, culture is just as important to people on where they decide where they will go to next. In order for any organization to continue to be successful, strategy, structure, people, rewards and processes must be aligned.

Q. What is your proudest moment in your career and why?
Achieving my Masters in Industrial and Organization Psychology, Organizational Behavior. It made me want to work in HR.

I always wanted to help people, my whole life. I got my BA in Psychology and I had intentions of going to be a psychologist. However, I did NOT want to go to med school to become a doctor. You need that to prescribe medication.

I decided to get my degree in I/O Psych with a focus on Organizational behavior, the study of what people do and how we can improve an organizations effectiveness and performance. In this world, nothing stays the same we are always looking for an easier way of doing things, a quicker solution and if you do not embrace the change then you will never grow. Being in HR, is how I help people at work and I hope to continue to be a champion of change
