Meet Aurora Brunovsky!
Aurora knew there was something incredibly special about HIHR since the idea was born last year. She met Erika, our CEO, years ago at Target where they worked together as HR Executives. Aurora works with Penn State, her alma-mater, as a HR Consultant but when Erika asked her to join her new business venture as a HR Business Partner, Aurora was honored and excited to join the HIHR team. We are incredibly grateful to be able to share Aurora and utilize her talents and love for HR.
Why do you love HR?
"One of the main reasons I love HR is because in this role I always feel like I’m able to help others. From management and employees to key stakeholders, HR has the rare opportunity to impact everyone in a business. While we wear many hats and the job looks different day to day, at the end of it all, we’re employee advocates, management partners and the drivers of positive change within an organization. THIS is why I love HR- we’re able to promote and inspire positive change for individuals AND their company’s success."
Why do you think HR is important?
“HR is important because we are the ones who help mold, create and maintain appropriate business practices, expectations and procedures within an organization. When implemented correctly and followed diligently, the organization will naturally begin changing for the better, become more successful and have a higher functioning team. HR adds value by helping companies to reach their goals- no matter what paths it may take to get there.”
What HR words of wisdom do you have?
“Talented employees stay with you and your organization for these top reasons: they are paid well, listened to, involved in decision making, challenged, mentored and most importantly, appreciated. People who feel appreciated will always do more than what’s expected of them and will want to stay with you and your business. When employees can’t check these boxes, they may get time, experience and training from you, and then go use it somewhere else.”
