Meet the Team: HR Consultant Emily Haus, SHRM-SCP



Being an HR consultant can be hard.


We work hard to find the best solutions for clients while ensuring that policies and laws are followed.


Then sometimes we need to do the most difficult jobs, which leads us to – well, less favorable labels (as I jokingly wrote about years ago).


This can be a tough line to walk. 


When we are looking for HR consultants to join the team, of course, we look for people like Emily: smart and likable with exceptional people skills. But we also think that standout HR professionals have a certain depth of character. We look for people who can dig deep to find solutions for our clients and tackle the stickiest situations with grace.  


This really does describe Emily. She’s instantly likable, levelheaded, and deeply intelligent, with a “let’s find a way” attitude when it comes to getting things done. When she finds a solution to a problem, you can practically see the light bulb go on over her head, and it’s off to the races!  

 

She’s the one everyone wants on their team.  


Emily is a delightfully witty individual whose sharp sense of humor comes through in the best moments. She has a fierce love for her young daughters that shines through in every conversation. She's very levelheaded and balanced and sticks to her guns! My favorite things about her! ~ Katie 


Emily’s Journey to HR Consulting  


Emily Haus came to us in September 2021 with a solid background in HR and Recruiting. She has a BA in Organizational Communication and a Minor in Management and Leadership from Miami University. She is also a Society of Human Resources Certified Professional.  


She worked as a 100% commissioned recruiter for over a year where she learned the value of working quickly and efficiently to find the right match. She spent the next six years in HR Generalist positions, most recently at London Computer Systems which was named a Best Place to Work by the Cincinnati Business Courier. 


Now, she is helping our clients to achieve the same.  


She’s a joy to work with – fun, smart, and dependable. I love hearing about her travel destinations in the past and planning for the future… especially loved it when she and her husband took her baby to London! That tells you how brave she is! ~ Miranda


Interview With Emily Haus


Emily says that the best HR advice she has ever received is: Be consistent. That’s not only HR gold, but it exemplifies Emily in her tenacity and dedication as an HR consultant.


Since she joined us she’s been professional, consistent, and knowledgeable. She understands how to listen without reacting, and is a problem solver at heart. She’s also adventurous and funny. 


We asked Emily a few questions to help you get to know her better. 


Q: What is your favorite slice?  

A: Pizza!

 

Q: What made you decide to go into HR?  

A: I started out my career in Recruiting. I was a Recruiter for a firm, focusing on Engineering and Manufacturing clients. My interactions with client HR teams and candidates sparked my interest in delving deeper into Human Resources. I found my first HR Coordinator position shortly after, where I was able to continue recruiting, but own more HR responsibilities as well. This role paved the way for my subsequent position as an HR Generalist at a Software company, which I held for about five years, up until I joined Slice!

 

Q: How did you initially connect with A Slice of HR? 

A: I discovered Colleen’s job posting on LinkedIn for an HR Consultant and was immediately intrigued. The culture and the role seemed like the perfect fit, and it truly has been! I’ve grown so much in my HR career, while still maintaining the flexible schedule I need as a mom. I’m incredibly grateful to be part of this team.

 

Q: What is your favorite thing about your work as an HR consultant?   

A: I love solving problems for my clients, especially tackling those challenging projects or compliance tasks that feel overwhelming. It’s incredibly rewarding to see the relief on my client's faces when I can take those burdens off their shoulders. 


Q: What do you like to do in your downtime? 

A: When I’m not working, I love spending time with my husband and two daughters. Going on a walk, bike ride, the zoo, you name it. I also try to stay active with running or pilates. My guilty pleasure when time allows is watching reality shows on Bravo or listening to a murder mystery podcast.

 

Q: What do you think makes you good at HR?   

A: Being a good listener and thinking before reacting.

 

Q: What is your favorite time of day?

A: Evenings. I love being able to wind down and reflect on the day.

 

Q: How do you see HR evolving in the future?  

A: I think we will see a lot more automation with technology advancements, which I think will not only improve efficiency but also allow for more personalized and proactive employee engagement strategies.

 

Q: When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up? 

A: As a child, I really wanted to do hair/makeup for a living!

 

Q: What do you she see as your strongest skill(set) or attribute as an HR consultant? 

A: As an HR consultant, my strongest attribute is my proactive approach. I anticipate challenges and opportunities, allowing me to address issues before they become significant problems. This forward-thinking mindset ensures that my clients are always prepared for what’s ahead.

 

Emily has really grown professionally since she started with Slice. She has taken on her own clients and has become an even bigger asset to our team. Her ability to step up when needed has made her an even better consultant. She is a pleasure to work with! ~ Meagan
