Our Chief Operating Officer, Tricia Stock, recently renewed her Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) Certification with the HR Certification Institute and Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). 

The certificate is accompanied by a congratulatory letter stating "your activities to keep current and updated in the field of human resource management most visibly demonstrate your individual achievement. At the same time, you efforts have contributed to the enhancement of the entire profession."

Congratulations Tricia!

HRi volunteered with Hospice of the Chesapeake at the 4th Annual Annapolis Irish Festival on July 11th and 12th. 

We had some great conversations and heard some heartwarming stories from people visiting the Hospice of the Chesapeake information tent and collected over $250 in donations! Working the beer ticket sales tent was also quite a lot of fun.

The event was a huge success and it wouldn't have been so without the support of all of our volunteers - thank you to everyone who participated and we hope to have another wonderful turnout next year.

HRi has recently sponsored Hospice Hundred's 2014 Fashion for a Cause event!

In 2011, Hospice of the Chesapeake expanded it's mission to care for children and adolescents who are living with advanced illness as well as support for their families dealing with the illness through a new program, Chesapeake Kids. Funds raised by Hospice Hundred directly support Chesapeake Kids. Whether the needs are medical, psych-social or grief counseling, Hospice of the Chesapeake is committed to supporting children throughout their journey with illness and grief. Chesapeake Kids provides pediatric hospice, perinatal and infant loss support, grief camps, and monthly support progams.

HRi is honored to support Hospice Hundred, Hospice of the Chesapeake and help to expand the Chesapeake Kids program to serve every child in need of care, support and comfort. 

Congratulations to Ben Hahn, Esq. of Hahn Law, LLC! For the third year in a row, he has been selected as a "Washington, DC Super Lawyer" in the Employment & Labor category.

For over 10 years, Mr. Hahn has counseled HRi on complex, legal employment and workplace issues. He has provided us with much appreciated guidance from single-issue contract matters and employment discrimination to unfair competition and employment contract matters.

Please join us in congratulation Mr. Hahn on this greatly deserved recognition!

On March 20, our Marketing & Communications Manager, Rachael Osberger, participated in a panel discussion focused on helping Renal Fellows understand the job search and interview process. This panel was part of the Renal Physicians Association's 2014 Fellows Workshop which offered useful and valuable information from selected experts to aid in making a smooth transition from training into practice.

"It was daunting speaking in front of a room of doctors, but I quickly realized that they are in the same boat as everyone else. Fellows need advice on how to look for a job, interview, and negotiate a contract in this competitive job market as other job seekers do.

I appreciate the opportunity and invitation from the RPA to speak. Hopefully I was able to help the Fellows start their search."
