Director of HR
PROCESS IMPROVEMENT: Tova Brody’s work as director of HR has helped improve overall hiring and onboarding at Blue Ocean Realty. For example, she implemented a comprehensive online and in-person screening process that has made for a much happier employee culture.
QUICK TIP: “Do today what others will not so you can do tomorrow what others cannot.”
EMPLOYEE IMPACT: Brody has gone to bat for increased employee benefits and ease of navigation through the benefits packages. For example, short- and long-term disability are now covered at no cost to the employee.
STRONG CULTURE: Keeping the culture the same at all levels of the company has been a challenge for Brody, but she has countered it by starting a Culture Club where everyone from executives to the maintenance crew has a voice to talk about what is working and what is not, and how Blue Ocean Realty can give back to the community.
