HR Leader of the Year
The HR Leader of the Year Award is presented annually during the national conference, to recognize an HR Leader who has exemplified the strategic role and an outstanding leader within the HR community.
Joaquin consistently demonstrates his leadership and management skills. He has set up a strategic plan for the team to follow and strive for. Not only is he continuously working on the strategic plans, he is still able to juggle the day to day operations with a positive and uplifting attitude.
"To work with him, you would see that he is empathetic, courageous, and kind. He goes out of his way to connect with the tribal members and to see how he can help them improve their lives. He is culturally sensitive and is always open and willing to learn the ways of our tribal community.
I believe we are in a much better place due to having Joaquin as our HR leader!"
Congratulations Mr. Joaquin Blanco!
David Fendrick, CEO
