Andrew Lamberto was a successful Human Resources Leader for almost 30 years. He worked for over 14 years with the County of Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department before he accepted the position he most recently held, Director of Human Resources for San Bernardino County. Lamberto used his experience to help workers and represent his organization’s interests at the same time. Here’s how he did it:
- Listen to workers. As a Human Resource Director, you’ll hear from the company all the time about its interests in regard to the workers. But if you don’t listen to the concerns and questions from the workers like Andrew Lamberto did, you’ll never be able to represent their interests as well.
- Keep company goals in mind. Everything you do should be in the interests of both the company and its employees. Remember to never let one side of the job overtake the other in your daily operations.
- Think motivation. Part of your job as a Human Resources Director is to motivate the employees of a company. Try to initiate programs that lead to larger, easier output from all workers across all departments. Incentive programs and morale-boosters do this well.
Andrew Lamberto helped both his organization and his employees immensely as the Director of Human Resources.
