The Accounting and HR departments manage employee relations, recruitment, hiring, payroll, and benefits. They are essential to ensuring the well-being of all employees. Accounting makes sure everyone receives their paycheck on schedule and assists with time sheet problems. The HR department is always extremely helpful when someone is struggling with a claim, and acts as a point of contact between our benefits providers and our staff.
The HR staff also put an exceptional effort towards finding and welcoming new employees who will make our company stronger. Deb Trautman is our HR Manager, and she has been with Surdex for 5 years. Jon Mueller (pictured), our Director of Finance, joined our team earlier this year.
Our HR staff said they all miss the face-to-face interaction in the office now that we are almost all working from home, but they are making the most of our current situation. Jon Mueller says the most rewarding part of his job is “being invited to Teams meetings, which provides me with a true feeling of belonging to the Surdex team, and keeps me abreast of key areas of the business.” Deb Trautman says she is “really proud of the culture we all work to maintain, even with working from home. People are connecting personally, learning new skills and are going above and beyond.”
