Operations managers need to lead by example and guide their teams with control and compassion.
At Metropolitan, Sean is the only HR professional on the team and handles everything from employee issues/promotion, benefits and benefits options, Workers’ Comp, Recruitment, Retirement, and Payroll / Attendance. He has contributed to the strength of their current staff as well has increased the staff count by over 50% (56 new employees).
