Lisa Phillips' Summary

I am a creative and enthusiastic hard working professional who has extensive professional experience in Human Resource Management, Leadership and Employee Training. Moreover, I have excelled in my communication skills and have been told I have a pleasant personality, making it easy to work with me. I do this by partnering up with the Executive Management Teams in charge to obtain buy in on various projects. As with any HR professional, it is required of me to stay up-to-date on HR trends, NY/Federal Employment laws and stay in compliance in the HR field.

I enjoy presenting, most recently, at the Northeast Business and Economics Association Conference in which I jointly presented a paper on Pensions and Investment Retirement. I have demonstrated many other valuable qualities, but most importantly, practice a high degree of ethical behavior as well as possess moral character and am a highly principled individual.
