"Throughout my time at Macmillan I have been incredibly fortunate to grow within HR, learn the ins and outs of recruiting while discovering and getting to work on my true passions, which include employee relations, compensation and performance management."Kristen | Macmillan Show statement
Kristen | Macmillan
My name is Kristen and I am a Manager, HR Business Partner (HRBP) for Macmillan Trade/Shared Services. I am based out of Macmillan's New York City office in the Financial District and have been with Macmillan for 7 years and counting.
I started my career as an HR Assistant in June of 2014 and over the years have been able to grow my career within Macmillan going from HR Associate to HR Recruiter to Associate HR Generalist and most recently being promoted to Manager, HRBP. Throughout my time at Macmillan I have been incredibly fortunate to grow within HR, learn the ins and outs of recruiting while discovering and getting to work on my true passions, which include employee relations, compensation and performance management.
I feel incredibly fortunate I found a place that was work but felt so much like home. The culture, the people, and the passion cannot be manufactured. People genuinely love working here and it shows. Everyday I get up and I am so proud to say that I work for not only a successful organization, but one with such heart. 7 years later my decision to join Macmillan is still one of the very best decisions I have made. I consider so many of my colleagues to be family and the Macmillan family is one of a kind.
