August 2018 Member Spotlight_Taylor Taylor Hoedemaker, PHR
Manager, Human Resources
Williams Sonoma Inc.
San Francisco Regional Board Member

The rockstar NCHRA member we’re spotlighting this month (of August) is Taylor Hoedemaker, PHR.  She is a true “triple threat,” having taken our certification prep course and easily passing her PHR exam, generously hosting our PHR-SPHR course in the spring of 2017, and continuing her membership as an applicant to serve on the San Francisco regional board.

Taylor is with San Francisco-based retail giant Williams Sonoma Inc. (Corp), and a proud PHR certification holder. Thank you, Taylor, for serving your HR community by your commitment and volunteer efforts!

Here’s what we learned about Taylor:

What do you find is your greatest reward working in HR?  

I always feel a sense of accomplishment each day knowing I made a difference in improving an associate’s work experience. When I reflect on the purpose of my role at Williams-Sonoma, I think a large part of it is to ensure associates are happy, healthy, and engaged and knowing I help support that keeps me motivated and excited to go to work each day.

What role has NCHRA played in your career?  

NCHRA has connected me to a lot of incredible people who work in Human Resources. I love meeting new people in HR to consult with, bounce ideas off of, and share our accomplishments and challenges with. Their prep classes are amazing and helped tremendously when I took the PHR and they have some of the best seminars I have attended.

What is something people might not know about you?

I studied Biology and Biotechnology – I would never have thought I would end up in Human Resources but I love it and feel really lucky that I happened to land my dream job!
