Karen Rice, Group HRBP, a Finalist in the HR Excellence Awards


The Employers Association will host the 5th Annual HR Excellent Awards, which is aimed at honoring top human resource professionals throughout the Charlotte region, and highlights the value that an HR professional brings to accomplishing the strategic objectives and bottom line results of an organization by selecting and retaining the best talent, creating a positive work environment, and developing, engaging and motivating employees.

Karen Rice, Group HR Business Partner for Lash Group, was nominated by one of the members of her team for the Strategic HR Leadership award, and is one of three finalists in this category. Karen was chosen as a finalist for her passion and dedication to people. She is a source of inspiration not only for her team members, but also for others across the organization. Karen always has a positive attitude, and demonstrates grace under pressure. She is a philanthropist, and lives up to our company mantra of “working with purpose”, not only supporting her team and the organization, but also the patients Lash Group serves each day.

The awards will be held on March 9, 2016 and the winners will be revealed at the event. Abby Wambach, legendary two-time Olympic gold medalist and FIFA Women’s World Cup soccer champion will provide the keynote address. Congratulations Karen on the nomination!
