RC: Briefly describe your role and how long you've been at RedCloud
EB: I provide a great work experience for all RedCloud employees by providing digital tools, hardware, educating, and addressing all things human resource and operations. I recently celebrated my six-year anniversary.
RC: What was it like to join RedCloud (onboarding process) - and how have you personally helped evolve that process since you joined?
EB: Simple and straightforward. I started with RedCloud when we had about 35 consultants and 6 corporate team members. I would perform 3-4 new hire onboards a month, process employee enrollments, office management, IT help support, hardware set up and write the monthly RedCloud newsletter. We’ve implemented benefit enrollments online, ERP system, and we are now doing roughly 10 onboards a month alongside 20 corporate team members that I enjoy collaborating with daily.
RC: Given your background and other experiences, what stands out to you with RedCloud?
EB: Much of my career has been in support roles in small sized and start-up companies. RedCloud started small and rapidly grew. RedCloud challenges you to become better every day and RedCloud really cares about its employees.
RC: What originally drew you to RedCloud?
EB: I wanted to pursue a career path in human resource operations and in the optimistic future for growing with the company.
RC: Where do you see the future of consulting or the future of RedCloud?
EB: Continually striving to grow and build a team and continue to be one of the best consulting companies to work for!
RC: Name one piece of technology you couldn’t live without and why?
EB: I’m inclined to say my iPhone like so many others. However, I couldn’t live without my gas range. I truly enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing meals with my family and friends. In my next life I will be a chef.
RC: What are you looking forward to the most this year with RedCloud?
EB: RedCloud’s annual Holiday Party! This year it is going to be in person. I enjoy any occasion to converse, interact, and laugh with coworkers’ face to face. We always have a blast at our events and that’s in big part to all our talented employees.
