A former -- former society for human resources Kansas City Council director held numerous volunteer positions with the Johnson County Society for Human Resource Management. -- basically you are mrs. human resources can -- -- -- that. Chara and not letting your match you know. Is it. I mean it tell us a little bit I obviously just read that the top -- bullet points about you but. But really tell us about your passion for human resources in a little bit more about about you Tammy. Sure that caption for many organizations were -- Working with the talent and the organization que me married surpassed the goal of the organization. Et Al OK I got asked not to let's start with a hard question how because. That's that's really what everybody is trying to do no matter what you businesses -- the year. Met the fabulous run more producer behind. The end of buttons here or whether your your canned meat or meat or the -- down the street is it taking the talent they have an organization of pushing forward and really doing well and making your business -- So the key the key question is how do you do that. I think it's all true relationship building -- of the right people in the right age and makes things happen. And I'd become a national recruiter for my organization how many people. Throughout my journey in my into the college retreating from an organization. And we don't have an opening right and I try to keep and then mine so we constantly have the right people on the right it. It your bio says you did -- -- your career through experiences and retail government insurance and manufacturing. Can you kind of extrapolate out about at those different areas of your expertise. Sure actually started out end. Retail back in the days of that -- -- toward change and so that's a very structured Canada and organizations. Is not very many of those collapsed. And that's part of the country anymore. I -- -- to teaching -- a very organized action a lot of people came into that business -- -- Japanese vehicles backer negotiate source who worked their way up into the new -- area. And then in government -- everybody's favorite. Everybody's favorite energy did an entity to talk about what about isn't that how did you apply here human resources skills and the government area. Sometimes county government. And in that again that's fine and right people are making -- and the right. Clijsters in county government have a number of different organizations that really are running their own business. And so it's interesting to keep the right people in the right place -- make sure that you understand each business and help them to meet -- call. It it do you ever feel like you're like -- that the millionaire matchmaker I mean basically it we call it human resource of fancy word that sometimes just. If you -- -- and you just match making the person went with the job right. I think so and I think in that tight economy. Even more important to have the right compensation and then you can attract the right I've been spending a lot of time in that area every week. Well and he says the key wherever they like says -- is when they're not bitching about the government that like to bitch about the economy. Do what you're on the front lines IDC at the other talking to people you're out there talking to the businesses that need people. When you're really at that grassroots level out around Kansas City what are you hearing is the economy coming back in the let's talk about the local Kansas City economy what do you think. I think the job market looking better all the time. A lot of human resource and -- people that -- laid off because we're non revenue producing -- having -- to come back into the workforce. -- a job opening what happened ancient pequot. They're looking for people who can put together those sort of reward packages that are gonna bring the people back at you need in the right it. So basically you're kind of -- that that they human resource professionals roll over the past twenty to thirty years has kind of been redefined. And the economy pushing businesses to return to debate to basic skin -- -- richer and -- sharing. I think that's -- I think a lot a lot of non revenue producing types like human resource professional relayed not wearing a hard times. And now that got the job market opening up the need to bring that people back to Hulk and the other competitive compensation package. Obtain the right he's going to keep people that -- keep them interested in working. There's so rape case study I go into place I'm not gonna say where but.

To justify those those very needy and meaty things that they HR professional -- It is an on going challenge because it's a traditional and non revenue producing pollution and but it also can be revenue in shape and position.
