I have to say, I am a little surprised that it's been three years. In three years I have gone through:
- 3 co-workers (doing the payroll position)
- 3 CEOs
- 2 bosses
- I have processed 78 terminations (with just as many (if not more) new hires)
- I know the names and faces of all 135 employees (and also still remember all the 78 terminations)...this is big for me
- I have coordinated Angel Tree, blood drives, food bank donations, bake-offs, cook-offs, pumpkin carving contests, random pizza lunches, an ice-cream appreciation day, brown bag sessions, interviews, Onboarding meetings, and tickets for Richmond Flying Squirrels games.
- I have scanned every document in the HR department (close enough at least)
- I have moved the chairs throughout two buildings, multiple times for multiple meetings
- I have attended several employment law seminars, a semester of a PHR class (and would have taken the test if they would have allowed me), and various webinars.
- I conducted an internal I-9 audit
- I am a notary
- I have learned payroll and recruiting
- I am in charge of the suggestion program, the recognition program, the education reimbursement program, facilities and the main page of our Intranet.
- And much more.
I've come a long way from the days when I just sat in my workstation writing a book and wondering if I had made a mistake by switching jobs. ...I write at home now (*cough* that means I still wonder if I made a mistake :P)
