Tina Hamilton, president of myHR Partner, shares her biggest guilty pleasure of being the boss.
With the recent national news coverage by The Wall Street Journal and Fortune Magazine about how myHR Partner thrives as a 40-hour workweek company, we thought it would be a good time to put our boss, Tina Hamilton, PHR on the spot. After all, if hard-hitting national journalist can grill her about her bossing skills, why can’t your favorite HR blog?
So, after all the talk about work-life balance, treating employees with respect and creating a healthy workplace environment, we wanted to know one thing the journalist seemed not to have asked recently. And here’s our big question for Tina:
What is your biggest guilty pleasure as an employer?
“Oh, that’s an easy one. I truly love getting to know the individuals I work with and learning about their lives from their experiences and stories. That said, my absolute biggest guilty pleasure is opportunities to get to see all of their precious children! I never get tired of the back-to-school and holiday photos, and I gush every time the little ones stop into the office. Kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews—family makes me happy. Seeing that side of my employees’ lives really drives home my commitment to a healthy work-life balance in our company culture.”
Wow. With a quote like that, how could we NOT include the following album? Enjoy the pictures of some of the biggest things we are most thankful for this season, and always.

Our Employee Retention Tip of the Month:
“Make a point to express your gratitude to your employees,” says Tina. “Appreciation is one of the simplest things we can express as employers that can create a postive work environment for everyone, and yet it is often overlooked or forgotten.” Sincerely acknowledging the contributions of your employees on a regular basis will go a long way in building a stronger team and retaining the talent you work so hard to cultivate in your organization.
Happy Thanksgiving, from the entire myHR Partner Team!
