Shawn Covarrubias, AIF® serves as our VP of Client Services and was honored for the Distinguished Leaders – Human Resources Award in Orange County Business Journal. This award is designed to recognize HR executives who had to navigate a new office environment over the last two years while maintaining corporate culture with staff.

Here is an excerpt of the nomination:

“During the brunt of COVID-19, there were no pay cuts and Shawn brought on five new hires spread across four departments. To relieve the transition of working remotely, Apriem covered staff utility bills and fuel. She carries out the Apriem way in the onboarding process following our coined “3-CPO” method, analyzing for “Character, Competence, Credibility, Passion, and Ohana (Family).””
