As a fellow director, I see this as important move for our firm. By having someone at the director level, overseeing our human capital efforts as well as firm administration, we are demonstrating our commitment to our people.
Annabella joined our firm in 2004 and has been a great addition. As director of human capital and firm administration she will oversee the Human Capital Support and Administrative teams, work closely with firm practice leaders to set firm wide policies, as well as planning, organizing, directing and controlling the operations of the firm. She also handles employee benefits, regulatory compliance and all related functions of human resources including employee relations, and risk management.
Annabella has the Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) certification, which requires reaching a certain level in your career as well as passing a written exam. The exam for the last few years has had an average pass rate of 57%. There are only 40,000 SPHR professionals across the globe, and we’re lucky to have one in our office! Annabell is also involved with HR Houston.
