Jamie Nagle, Vice President of People and Culture, joined TaskEasy in 2018 with over 20 years’ experience in all areas of HR. This experience has provided her the opportunity to understand how all elements of the business benefit when people are at the core of the decision-making process. Jamie strives to build a diverse and inclusive workplace where employees are encouraged to bring their ‘whole-self’ to work every day. This, in turn, provides a workforce that will out-produce, out-perform, and out-innovate all competitors. A passion for people drives Jamie’s success in creating and sustaining a thriving culture that attracts and retains top talent and creates a community where everyone is valued.

 

We asked Jamie the following:

Name something that makes you proud to work for TaskEasy? I tell everyone TaskEasy’s secret sauce is our exceptional leadership team and team members. We truly value people. Our customers, clients, and contractors come from all walks of life, and so do we. Our team includes people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it’s what we should do, but because we know it makes our company stronger. Working at a company that puts people first makes me proud to work here and energized to come to work.

List a unique company practice that may be of interest to other members. We prioritize hiring for culture-fit. It is so important that we dedicate an entire round of interviews to determine whether an individual will not only be a culture fit, but whether they will truly thrive at TaskEasy. We understand that when we are intentional about our culture and truly value our team members, the profits and success will follow.

How has Employers Council helped TaskEasy? Employers Council has provided professional training and advice on difficult to navigate employment-related issues. I have appreciated both Ryan and Bob’s insight. Their council is thoughtful and pragmatic and strikes that difficult, yet critical, balance between paralyzing the organization and effectively managing liability. Whether it’s growing my professional network with other HR leaders through the Senior HR Executive Roundtable, providing timely and informative employment-related articles and training to our People team, or providing solid legal advice, Employers Council has helped control our legal costs while increasing our internal knowledge.
