Human Resources Manager for The Crossing Company
What’s your name and role, and what division do you work under at The Crossing Group?
My name is Caitlin Blackwell, and I am the Human Resources Manager for The Crossing Company.
Where did you start and what has your career path been like at The Crossing Group?
My career path with The Crossing Group started in January 2014 when I was hired as the Administrative Coordinator. I immediately started supporting the HR Manager at the time and was transitioned to the role of HR Coordinator in October of that year. I’ve been a key member of the department ever since and was promoted to HR Manager in January 2020.
What’s the most rewarding (or favourite) part of your role?
My favourite part of the role is that most days are a surprise. There’s minimal routine in this position, and it’s always interesting and challenging, which keeps me engaged.
I also enjoy working with all levels of the organization. I get to interact with our entry level field employees and the executive team on a regular basis.
What’s your favourite thing about working at The Crossing Group?
My favourite thing about working at The Crossing Group is the autonomy and team. This organization has a lot of high-achieving individuals, and we all work together to deliver excellent work without the need for much oversight. I have the power to make the decisions that need to be made, but there is always someone willing to assist or give an opinion when needed.
I always enjoy projects that add value to the team, and I am proud to say I have participated in and led several projects like that. Currently, I am working with the HR and Finance teams across The Crossing Group to implement new HR and payroll software for our Canadian employees, which should streamline procedures in those departments significantly for The Crossing Group.
How would you describe the culture at The Crossing Group?
Entrepreneurial, task oriented, rewarding, and nimble. No day is the same, and we are constantly improving, changing, and adapting to the industry, clients, and technology.
What advice would you give to someone looking to work in a role such as yours at The Crossing Group?
This organization and this role need someone who is always striving to add value to the organization, while growing and improving their own skills. It would be important to enjoy taking initiative, variety, and putting in hard work that will be rewarded.
