Johnson, SHRM-CP

Steven is the human resources coordinator at the Health & Hospital Corporation of Marion County (Indianapolis, Indiana).  His experience includes all areas of human resources, with specific focus on compliance, employee relations and training and development.  He holds an MBA from Western Governors University and a bachelor’s degree in theatre from Indiana State University.  His experience ranges from human resources positions in healthcare and manufacturing companies to directing and producing theatrical productions.  Perhaps most surprisingly, the skills used to direct plays and musicals transfer very well to human resources.  Investigating and advising on employee matters and corralling actors are remarkably comparable – following policies or following scripts, doing them the right way builds an efficient workforce and gets a standing ovation!
