About Your Partnership With GlobaLogix

Your needs and the obstacles you face are what our teams work to identify. Then we create, adapt, and customize solutions based on your unique business to respond to your challenges.

t

Challenge Ideas, Not People

Disagree with what someone says rather than who they are, what position they hold, or what you think motivates them.

Be Hard-Working

Focus on the problem and keep going until a solution works. The quick and easy path rarely leads to a wise solution. We don’t give up just because it is difficult; We strive for accomplishment. 

Show Ingenuity

When traditional processes don’t seem to work, consider a different approach. Attack the problem from different angles – even those that seem unusual or never been used before. 

Be Collaborative

Seek out the opinions, expertise, and ideas of others – consider their point of view. Work together with them to find common ground.

Show Grit

Resolved & Determined to find solutions. Take pride in solving problems that no one else can solve.

Have a Servant's Heart

Always be more willing to help others rather than waiting for them to help you.

Jennifer Flores | HR Manager

Jennifer Flores | HR Manager

Don’t tell our customers, but our employees are Jennifer’s favorite client. They are the reason she comes to work.

While she effectively promotes and supports the company’s core focus, vision and business principles; connecting with and assisting people is what makes her tick.

Funny story, long before she joined GlobaLogix, Jennifer’s friend, a staffing professional, had a candidate cancel at the last minute for their interview. Desperate to maintain a positive relationship, the friend asked Jennifer to fill-in for the middle time slot. (Jennifer had been home raising her children for 10 years and had no intentions of going back to work). So, Jennifer quickly pulled an outfit together, made it on time and had a good brainstorming session with the hiring manager; they needed help.

The friend called later the same day, rattled, saying that they wanted to offer Jennifer the part-time HR Admin position! What to do? Well, Jennifer knew she could get them organized, probably raise the morale and possibly reduce some costs to boot. So why not? Fast forward a few years later when she stepped-up as the interim HR Manager that ended up lasting for 5 years.

This experience offered her clarity that making a positive difference for employees is her forte and is the best way for her to serve an organization.  

Jennifer joined GlobaLogix in 2011 and established the HR Department. She proved the ability to develop and implement strategic and operational processes, manage the complete employee life-cycle, and administer the benefits programs all while staying compliant with HR law. In addition, she manages the travel coordination department and the recruiting department; freeing the company of recruiting firm fees.  She provides extensive support to the finance and operations departments, spearheaded charitable initiatives, and designed both the Houston and Pecos office locations. Jennifer may not know how to program an HMI or design a control system, but she knows how to create effective relationships that are core to the GlobaLogix culture; of that she is most proud.

She nestled herself right into the center of this organization where she can best support everyone in it. Her nature makes it easy to offer a comfortable, welcoming, satisfying work environment for everyone working in and with our organization.
