Yeo & Yeo is pleased to welcome Stephanie Vogel as the firm’s Senior Human Resources Manager. Stephanie will take charge of the firm’s four-person HR team following Kelly Smith’s retirement on March 31 from the Director of Human Resources position.
Smith joined the firm in 2002 and was instrumental in implementing the firm’s automated employee performance appraisal process and paperless personnel files. She was responsible for the firm’s payroll administration system and managed the firm’s healthcare plan, employee benefits and human resource policies and procedures. She received the firm’s prestigious Tom Thompson Award in 2009 and the Spirit of Yeo Award in 2017.
“Kelly has worked tirelessly to ensure our HR systems, policies, practices and benefit programs are among the best in our industry,” said President & CEO Thomas Hollerback. “Under Kelly’s leadership, the firm won numerous awards for many of our HR initiatives, including Michigan’s Best in Wellness for seven consecutive years. She has been a dedicated and hardworking team player with a deep understanding of our values and culture.”
Stephanie Vogel will lead the firm’s HR team as Senior Human Resources Manager. Vogel earned a Master of Science in Administration from Central Michigan University and has more than 17 years of HR experience. She holds the SHRM-SCP credential and is a Certified Benefits Professional (CBP) and Certified Compensation Professional (CCP). In addition to her HR management expertise, Vogel is a big-picture strategist, developing and implementing firm-wide HR programs and policies.
“Yeo & Yeo’s HR processes far surpass those of other HR teams I’ve worked with,” Vogel said. “I am excited to be part of the firm’s family-focused and community-oriented culture, and I can’t wait to continue Kelly’s legacy of developing state-of-the-art processes and benefits programs.”
