April came in like a lamb – waiting until late in the month to show up with nominations. Three came in in the last week. First up on the HR hit parade is Shannon Kendrick, nominated by Jovonna Palmer.

Jovonna said:

shannon kendrickShannon has worked in the HR field for the past 17 years focusing on succession planning, benefits, and employee relations. I have observed her as she thinks through every decision very carefully to make sure that she is making the best business decision for the company.

This past year, she has been mentoring me in becoming a better HR professional. I am following her example as I look for ways to use the best business practice for each situation that I’m presented with.

Currently Shannon is Director, Human Resources for the Country Music Channel/Viacom Media Networks – providing oversight and support for all HR initiatives for the channel including: employee relations counseling, benefit administration, performance management, recruiting and creation and implementation of various work/life balance programs.

Shannon also provided HR support for MTV Networks, TNN and was a programming coordinator for ESPN.

I wonder if her parents told her to watch less TV?

Say congratulations to our first nominee in April. Now – your job is to think about who you should nominate and then click here and make it happen!

Congrats Shannon! Sounds like it is well deserved.
