Salt Lake City, Utah – April 22, 2020
Utah Business recently recognized a group of high-achieving HR professionals in the state, one of them was Your Employment Solutions's (YES) amazing Director of Human Resources, Alison Evans! Alison's innovation at work and dedication to those she serves set her apart as a leader among her peers. She has been instrumental in driving YES' HR department to maximize her impact on the overall company goals, strategy and vision.
Alison started at YES as an account manager and, through a combination hard-work and continual self-improvement, she worked her way up to become the company's go-to HR professional. She effectively built the YES human resource department from scratch, all while balancing her job with her education–earning a master's degree from Utah State University in the process.
YES CEO Reed Laws notes Alison's enthusiasm for her work. “Alison has a true hunger for human resources. One of our companies core values is to be a ‘Team Player,' meaning we 'empower each other to do what is right,'” says Laws. “I believe she lives and abides by these rules. I am very happy and proud of who she is and what she stands for.”
Alison has made a major impact on YES during her tenure. She set aggressive goals and timelines. She personally recruits, develops, and works to retain and recognize YES’ talented internal employees. She routinely schedules educational meetings where she helps train company managers to stay compliant on important employment laws. She has played an integral role in helping YES hit significant company milestones and become a 4x winner of Utah Best Companies to Work For as well as the Best of State staffing agency.
“Alison is the embodiment of Your Employment Solutions,” says Anna Gailey, an HR assistant at YES. “YES prides itself on being ethical and honest, and Alison is just that. She keeps all of our staff up to date on the latest laws and updates, while making sure that everyone understands how this impacts their jobs and what actions they can take to incorporate any changes into their process. She is always there when you need her to listen or give advice, and is never without a story to tell. She is incredibly deserving of the award, we could not ask for a better leader of our team.”
Alison loves her job and the people she works with. She has high expectations and demands more from herself than anyone else demands of her. She has a strong ethical compass and her interest in continued learning has led her to accept important roles outside of work to stretch her limitations.
As such, Alison is actively involved in multiple HR organizations. She participates in several boards and forums to keep up-to-date or the dynamic HR scene; current Hospitality Director for Northern Utah HR Association, Treasurer for the Utah HR State Council, and Subcommittee Chair on the Workforce Development Committee for the Weber/Ogden/Davis/Hispanic Chambers of Commerce joined committee.
For her part, Alison expressed genuine excitement and gratitude upon being recognized for her achievements.
“I am so very honored to be recognized by Utah Business Magazine and Utah SHRM as one of the top HR Professionals of the Year in Utah!” exclaimed Evans. “Wow! There are so many amazing professionals I've worked with in my past 10 years in Human Resources and I am so grateful to be considered as a top professional among them. It's with all of their support and guidance that I've become successful in my own little niche in the staffing industry and I will rely heavily on them as I continue to grow through more tough experiences such as the COVID-19 pandemic. To receive this award is unbelievable to me, because it's not just me – It truly takes an amazing team and a tremendous amount of support to get to where I am, and for that I wish they were being recognized as well!”
“Your Employment Solutions is very lucky to have her in our organization,” added Reed Laws. “Thanks for choosing us Alison!”
Congratulations on a well-deserved award, Alison. Your Employment Solutions is grateful to work with you!
