To many employees it might seem as though the primary function of their company’s human resources department is to manage and distribute a large number of lengthy and tedious forms. While maintaining, updating and distributing the employee handbook and ensuring that employees have signed non-disclosure agreements on time are certainly important if time-consuming tasks, the chances are that most human resources departments play a much more important role in the trajectory of the company than this. It is true that the individuals that comprise a company’s human resources team work to ensure that employees and the company are in compliance with the company’s policies and federal and local employment laws but these professionals are also responsible for cultivating and securing the company’s most important asset: its employees. As a human resources professional noted in an article on LinkedIn the driving force behind a company’s success is not necessarily the sales that it makes or the revenue that it brings in. The true measure of a firm’s success lies in the people who were hired to make the sales calls that ended up closing the accounts that brought in the revenue and the marketing team that wrote the copy that connected with customers and resulted in encouraging the customer to purchase the company’s products. Whenever a company makes headlines for bringing in an exceptional amount of revenue during a quarter that revenue would not have been possible without the work of the qualified employees who go unnamed that were vetted and hired by the human resources department.
As a Chief Executive Officer noted in Entrepreneur.com employees represent the most important assets that a company can acquire. In order for a company to be successful in the long-term they must have qualified human resources professionals who are able to find employees that are a good fit for the company and that have the skills that are needed to complete tasks that enable the company to achieve its long term business goals. According to Entrepreneur.com the human resources team cannot be relegated to the margins of a company’s business strategy it must be at the center. A business’ human resources staff must be able to play an active role in helping to shape the company’s business goals because nothing a company is seeking to achieve will be possible without the hires that is in charge of making. This is why it is vital for companies to have experienced talent acquisition professionals like Julie Zuckerberg on hand to help develop their hiring processes and shape their long term plan for the kind of team that it wants to build.
Zuckerberg has had a long career as a recruiter that began at Hudson staffing and has led to her working at one of the largest banks in the world: Deutsche Bank. At Deutsche Bank Julie helps to guide the company’s hiring strategy to enable it to staff mission critical roles in the US asset management, wealth and commercial clients and its international technology and operations divisions. Her work at Deustche Bank has enabled the company address human resources issues such as handling attrition and ensuring that roles that are key to the business’ operations always remained filled by qualified officials. She also provides her leadership and oversight to more junior recruiters as they work to ensure that the bank is hiring the most qualified individuals.
