Eileen's Summary

My 30+ year career spans global HR leadership roles with Fortune 500 and mid-market companies and consulting firms with cross-industry clients experiencing organizational change from mergers, acquisitions, IPOs, and downsizing. Through the years I have successfully designed and managed competitive compensation, benefits, and wellbeing programs to attract and retain talent for global companies with hundreds of employees across multiple countries. Known as a collaborative cross-functional team leader, I am a strategic thinker with a results-driven leadership style and a heart for employees. I am proud of my accomplishments that focus on wellbeing, inclusivity, and best practices, I have successfully partnered with diverse teams to align HR initiatives with organizational goals to enhance the employee experience while streamlining processes and reducing costs. Gained from global corporate HR leadership roles & consulting, I bring both a strategic & hands-on perspective with expertise in: * Total rewards strategy & design (compensation & benefits) * Global wellbeing * Talent/performance management * Team leadership * Strategic planning * Project management * Process improvement/cost reduction * HR technology (Oracle HCM, PeopleSoft, SAP, Halogen, Microsoft D365) * Leadership development, training & executive coaching * Organization design * Change management * Post-merger integration * Vendor management/RFPs * Employee/labor relations/employee handbooks * Talent acquisition * Global mobility * Compliance (ERISA, FLSA, OFCCP, EEO/AA, SOX, GDPR, ISO27001,COVID-19) As a passionate life-long volunteer, I believe in giving back to my HR profession and my community. Some of my current and past volunteer leadership roles include Vista Maria Board Advisor and Board Development Committee member; Impact100 Metro Detroit co-lead of a Grant Review Focus Area and co-host of the 'Fueling Transformation' podcast interviewing Detroit-area non-profit heroes; Detroit Women's Brain Exchange co-lead; Detroit SHRM President; Michigan Compensation Association (MoCA) President; and WorldatWork Board Member (Regional VP). During my formative years as part of an expat family in the oil industry, I lived in and attended primary and secondary schools and universities in China, Indonesia, Iran, Spain & Venezuela, all of which influenced my desire to work with global organizations. I am fluent in Spanish and have studied Chinese, Farsi, Indonesian, and Italian.
