My name is Remus Boxley, and I am the Senior Vice President of Human Resources for Hilldrup. When we talk about our mission to deliver superior service, that starts with — and is dependent on — our most valuable resource: our people. Employees are our greatest asset, and to promote a culture that is customer-centric and empowers employees means we have to do everything we can to recruit and retain the best talent possible.
Part of that commitment is working to ensure that we are offering competitive compensation and benefits, including a competitively priced health and welfare benefits plan, generous paid leave programs (vacation leave, sick leave and parental leave), company paid short term disability, as well as participation in our 401(K) plan which includes a company match. It’s also about helping each employee to understand where they fit in the larger scheme and provide them with opportunities to grow and develop within the company. And finally, it’s about creating a safe space for all of our employees to bring their authentic selves to the table every day.
I have only been with Hilldrup for a few years, but I’ve been in Human Resources for over 25 years and have known of Hilldrup and its family of leaders since I was a child. It’s the commitment of the McDaniel family and our top leaders AND our organization’s strong culture that have allowed me to advocate for our employees like never before. These three elements allow me (and all of our employees) to show up authentically everyday as we continue on our path to being an employer of choice — for our current employees as well as applicants who may be considering coming on board.
Since joining Hilldrup, my goals for our employees and our culture remain the same and my commitment remains steadfast: to ensure that no matter where an employee is geographically located, we all feel connected to our mission, vision and values — and to each other — so that we all can operate as effectively and as efficiently as possible in an environment that respects and values each employee’s differences. I want people to feel empowered to speak up fearlessly, share ideas and propose viable solutions to workplace challenges. This is how we remain relevant. This is how we continue to grow. This is how we achieve our vision to be the best moving services company, period. Together, we keep moving.
