1. How did you come to join the Volvo Group?
I was working for another company, and I was not 100% satisfied with my job.  I decided to research the employers with the best reputation in North Carolina and the United States, and I quickly fell upon the Volvo Groups website.  It just happened that there was a position open in Human Resources, and I quickly applied.  After the recruitment process, I was chosen for the position.

2. Tell us about you current role and its main responsibilities.
I am currently the Process Manager for Compensation, Domestic Relocation, and International Assignments (VIAM).  I ensure the company's competitive pay position in the marketplace/industry, and provide a uniform method for determining the relative value of positions.  I also partner with Human Resource Business Partners, and line management to achieve defined business objectives, and provide compensation consulting direction and give assistance to other Volvo companies regarding compensation needs/questions.

3. Have you had other roles and assignments in the Group? What would you like to do in the future in the Group?
I began my career with Volvo as the Compensation Manager within Corporate HR.  In the future, I would like to continue broadening my knowledge and leadership skills.  I would like to stay within Human Resources function and be an integral part of the growth.

4. How would you describe the culture of Volvo Group? ( i.e. what do you think is distinctive about how we do things in Volvo Group ?)
I would describe the culture of the Volvo Group as an extended family.  Everyone within the Group truly cares for the employees, and wants to watch each and every employee grow to their highest potential.  The Volvo Way is not just something that is talked about, but it is truly a way of life here.  Expectations are set high, but in return, the rewards are just as high or sometimes even higher.

5. Why do you think someone should consider working for a Volvo Group company?
Someone should consider working for the Volvo Group because it is a fantastic company!  The sky truly is the limit when it comes to your career goals and growth.  The reputation of the company and the name speaks for itself; everyone is proud to say that the Volvo Group is their employer.
