The happy irony for Stephanie Angelo, Founder & CEO, is that her name also means “the crowned one”.

Human Resource Essential, LLC is a Finalist in the category Best Entrepreneur – Service Businesses – Up to 100 Employees.
The term at a crossroads” typically means that one doesn’t know which way to turn and what to do. When Stephanie hit a crossroads in her career as an independent consultant, she realized it was really an “intersection”; past abuse as a child meeting with professional experience in HR. Stephanie realized Human Resource and Management were misinformed and often unprepared to handle domestic abuse spillover into the workplace.
“I’m pleased we found a subject matter expert who specifically addresses the complex dynamics of DV in the workplace from the management and human resource perspective.” said Bobbie J. Fox, Esq. of SCF Arizona
Finalists were chosen by business professionals worldwide during preliminary judging.
Members of the six final judging committees will select Stevie Award winners from among the Finalists during final judging.

Cullen Hightower said, “A true measure of your worth includes all the benefits others have gained from your success. “ and I think that is such appropriate response to the number of people who are tied up with what measurement can be taken from domestic violence in the workplace training and consulting. I have long ago realized that most CEOs and CFOs need to know what will benefit the business bottom line. So when I talk with them I not only give them national statistics on the business costs of domestic violence; but I give them calculations in 11 different areas from their own workplace. So if I’m talking with five different companies in one week – that’s five different sets of calculations; they are unique to that organization.
Sometimes an executive really doesn’t care about the numbers; they care about the people first, and that’s really, really cool. But if numbers matter, I have the information.
What it took me a while to realize was that not one client has asked to measure the ROI after our work – they’re happy enough with what they see as positive and ongoing changes at the organization. They know from communication with management and staff that employees are going to the prepped and trained management or human resource domestic violence designees when they need help, resources or someone to talk to.
So at the end of the day if they are going to measure for their work in addressing domestic violence in the workplace the “measurable results” are the results they want in improved skills and experience across their leadership team to keep the workplace safe, complaint and productive.
Wouldn’t you call that success?
