Janet Hausrath is Cazenovia Recovery’s new human resources manager. She started in July and brings over a dozen years of recruiting experience to the agency. This will prove especially helpful in our very near future.
Improving HR processes motivates Janet. In her short time with us, she has already made substantial updates to reports and forms. “I added color and made them easier to read so that certain reports are more efficient,” she explained. Janet also has implemented new forms that help the onboarding process move along more quickly.
While processes allow her to demonstrate her organizational skills, her true passion is recruitment. “It’s really rewarding to be able to find a job for someone,” Janet said. At the moment, her main focus is filling current vacancies. Finding new hires for our remote locations can often be a challenge. Thankfully, staff across the agency are willing to help cover shifts when positions are open. “Somerset House is my main priority right now,” she explained.
Over the next few months, however, our agency will need to fill nearly 20 positions. More will follow throughout 2018. We will engage in a large recruitment campaign throughout the fall to attract new hires to brand new positions. You’ll hear much more about this soon. In the meantime, Janet is looking forward to this “exciting challenge” of a recruitment campaign. “We’re going to be very different and take an innovative approach,” said Janet.
She’ll also be responsible for explaining why our agency is such a great place to work. Of course, Janet has many reasons to draw from. “As an organization, we’re very family-oriented and everyone is very friendly. Also, we’re continuing to grow and everyone is focused on the same goal of helping people.” Part of Janet’s plan is to reach out to local colleges and universities. “Having so many in the area with social work programs is a huge asset,” said Janet. “We’ll help get the word out about the great work that we do.”
