As People & Culture Assistant with Dixon Advisory, Cobby plays a crucial part in the hiring, onboarding and miscellaneous needs of employees. Cobby aids in recruitment and hiring processes, provides administrative support for employee healthcare and 401k benefits, continuously bolsters the culture of the company and more. “I’ve always known I wanted to work with people – I feel very lucky to do so at a company that’s run with heart. The feeling you get when you are able to turn someone’s negative day around to something positive; that is the feeling that makes me love what I do.”
Cobby developed her expertise from working in the customer service industry for the past 14 years. Starbucks played the biggest role in polishing her attentiveness, conflict resolution, attention to detail and ability to remain calm under extreme pressure.
“The most valuable skill for anyone in Human Resources is the ability to be personable. All the skills in the world will not make someone who is shy feel comfortable confiding in you, only someone who has the warmth of compassion brings true understanding.”
When she’s not hard at work, Cobby enjoys catching up with friends, soaking up the sun and rainy day gameathons.
