Working with people is the best part of working in human resources, says DeAngelo Brothers Vice President of Human Resources Stephanie Klatka, who got into the field after starting her career in accounting.
“I went into this field because I love working with people. I love finding out what makes them tick. I think it’s fascinating to know that everybody is a little bit different and there’s different ways of doing things,” she told Monster at the Society for Human Resource Management’s 2012 conference in Atlanta.
“I love working with managers and teaching them all about,” the diversity among employees. “Your employees are not cookie cutters, so you really need to understand what motivates them — why they like to do what they do.”
