Meet Steven, Human Resources Business Partner at GetGo
This week's #TeamMemberTuesday is featuring Steven, Human Resources Business Partner at GetGo Cafe + Market. The inclusive nature and idea of "finding your fit" at GetGo quickly made the opportunity with our Human Resources team a great option for Steven as he was looking to grow his career in HR. He enjoys being able to assist our Team Members and continuously help GetGo evolve as a great place to work.
What is your job title? And what do you love most about your job?
My job title is Human Resources Business Partner. When I was looking, I knew that GetGo was a newer and growing division of Giant Eagle that carried over the reputation of being an employer that people love to work for, a community partner, and a place that you can grow your career.
I love that I have been given the opportunity to make GetGo a great place to work for all Team Members. I also team up with multiple department leaders across the business to achieve success and resolve issues.
What do you enjoy most about the culture at GetGo?
GetGo focuses on finding your fit and being who you are. The Company is inclusive, diverse, and has opportunities for any individual that works hard and puts their best foot forward. The GetGo Human Resources team is comprised of many talented individuals with different backgrounds and experiences, which results in the department’s success.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
I am a first-generation college graduate in my family. I worked hard and completed my Bachelor's degree in Human Resources Management while maintaining a full-time career. In addition, I have also completed the SHRM-CP certification to further my development and career in Human Resources.
Which of GetGo's Core Values resonates with you the most, and why?
Respect All. In my opinion, Respect All is listed first for a reason. We must respect every individual inside and outside of our Company. The differences in people should always be celebrated and respected. When the Core Value of Respect All is demonstrated correctly through everyone’s behavior, all the other Core Values fall in line.
What are some interesting hobbies or talents that most people may not know about you?
In my down time, I really enjoy getting closer to nature through kayaking. I also collect hour glasses and I am always on the lookout for new and unusual additions to my collection.
