The Charlotte Business Journal names Lash Group’s Karen Rice to the 2017 "Women in Business"
On March 16th at the Hilton Charlotte Center City in uptown, a ceremony was held to celebrate the achievements of each honoree. This year's class demonstrates the caliber of professional women who are guiding the Charlotte region's development as a major business center.
Among the 2017 recipients is Lash Group’s Karen Rice, Group HR Business Partner. Karen leads Lash Group’s Human Resources department. The HR team executes on a wide range of business needs and supports an organization that has grown to over 4000 associates in just a few short years. Her team is committed to improving the Lash Group associate’s experience through a variety of programs and initiatives, which in turn leads to continued success for our company, our clients and the patients we serve.
Karen has been with Lash Group for a few short years, but already has a long list of impressive achievements. She has completely transformed the Human Resources department – building and reorganizing her team to ensure that they are fully prepared to provide support and meet the rapidly increasing needs of an organization that is experiencing tremendous growth and change. Within the last year, Lash Group has built new offices and relocated to Fort Mill; we have expanded our business portfolio and workforce; and now we are in the midst of a transformational initiative that will change the way we do business and how associates approach their work. To meet the challenges associated with such change, Karen has led the development of new processes, procedures, and programs to not only attract a highly skilled workforce, but also to retain and continue to develop and engage top talent.
