Human Resources Generalist
Tell us about yourself.
My name is Hannah, and I work in our HR department assisting our Atlanta, Charlotte, and Dallas markets. I was born and raised here in Georgia, and I currently live in the Atlanta metro area. Back in the day, I attended Young Harris College (in my opinion the most beautiful school) up in the North Georgia mountains. While there, I studied Business and Public Policy and played on the YHC softball team, a part of the Peach Belt Conference. If you ask my friends, they will tell you I am most passionate about dogs, fashion, and reality TV. On the weekend, you can find me at a local brewery hanging out with friends!
What attracted you to Strive?
I was actually approached by Strive at the very end of college, and I am so grateful. From the beginning, I met a tight-knit team of incredibly kind and driven individuals who were always willing to help me learn the technology area. I was excited to have found a company that truly believes in taking in young professionals and helping them discover their career path. Strive pitched a strong culture where you had the opportunity to get involved in activities outside of your job title (and they delivered!) – I love being a part of a company where I can help with community outreach programs and participate in monthly Women’s Empowerment meetings.
What keeps you at Strive?
I have a funny story here – I actually began my career at Strive as an Associate Recruiter. While I was not the most talented recruiter, Strive took a chance on me and took notice of my detail-oriented/process-driven mind. From here, I was encouraged to look into our HR department where I found the passion I never knew I had. I choose to stay with Strive because they are willing to invest in their people, even when some of them are young and still solidifying a career path. You can also ask anyone in the company, the best thing about being a part of Strive is the people. I am honored to be able to work alongside amazing coworkers, leaders, and clients!
What makes Strive stand above the rest?
I believe Strive stands above the rest because of the dedication and commitment to deliver the best customer service to our people and clients. Every employee, regardless of position, upholds a commitment to the Strive core values and exhibit’s them each and every day. This goes beyond just a consulting business model – here at Strive, we value our people and the unique traits they bring to the table.
What are you looking forward to in the future?
I am excited to see our company grow within our new acquisition with The Planet Group! With change brings exciting opportunities and areas of development. I feel very lucky to be apart of a market and HR team where learning and being curious are celebrated and put first. Personally, I am excited to look into new HR certifications and grow my knowledge and professional development in my field!
