Today we chatted with Kelsey, our Director of Human Resources. When she’s not at work, she loves reading, trying new foods, and traveling with her husband. Let’s learn more about what she does here with our Fōmcore team!

Can you introduce yourself and tell us about your role here at Fōmcore?

Hey there! I am the Human Resources Coordinator – which means my job revolves 100% around our amazing team and making sure they’re taken care of. I really have the best job in the building. Payroll, benefits, time-keeping, personnel record-keeping, legal compliance, onboarding/offboarding, safety support, and my favorite: Culture! I’ve landed my dream job as a twenty-something, who else can say that?

If there was one thing that you could tell someone about our company, what would that be?

Most people who work in HR love working with people, and I’m no exception. But our people – the FAMcore – really are the best in the business. They are relentless in their craft, they commit to the hard work of meeting high standards, and they are eager to recognize each other and celebrate the wins. My job has joy every day because of this extraordinary team.

What is your favorite thing about working at Fōmcore?

I love that Fōmcore empowers employees to make decisions in their work – I am never micromanaged and have the ability to make “I will” statements, rather than “Can I?” statements. The feeling of trust applies in all areas of the business: quality of a piece in production, communication with internal and external customers, community involvement, etc. Ownership believes in the team, and communicates that by actively and consistently trusting us.

What is your favorite piece that we make and why?

I’m a die-hard Anderson chair fan, especially in a bright print. I’m petite, so I prefer the original smaller size. It’s a great reading spot!

If you know Kelsey, then you’ve seen the way she’s able to light up a room with her positive spirit. We’re so thankful to have her working in such an important role alongside our people here at Fōmcore! #AtOurCore.
