HR manager
Giant Tiger Stores

Sarah D’Angelo knows that it’s crucial for an organization to have properly defined roles and responsibilities prior to recruitment. Thus, she is currently working on a job evaluation project to consider all the positions in her company’s home office and warehouse and set up clear compensation bands. D’Angelo considers this “the foundation for many other HR initiatives, such as career mapping, talent development, succession planning [and] performance management.” She’s also working on developing a clear talent acquisition strategy and retention plan by conducting interviews with new employees to gather feedback and suggestions on benefits and work arrangements. “I think the key is to keep our finger on the pulse with respect to what is important to, and what motivates, our employees,” she says.
