Nature Gnaws, the Florida based dog chew brand with a line of all-natural chews, announced the hiring of Andrea Rodriguez as their director of Human Resources (HR). Formerly of Accurate Personnel Services, Ascendo Resources and Boeing, Rodriguez brings her wealth of HR knowledge in recruiting, policies, hiring laws and corporate standards to create a thriving, attractive and progressive workspace at Nature Gnaws.
Andrea Rodriguez carries a Master of Science in Human Resources Management from Nova Southeastern University (NSU) and a Bachelor of Arts in Social Work from Florida Atlantic University (FAU). Rodriguez is also a member of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), which supports HR as a profession and provides further education and certification to its members, while lobbying Congress on critical issues related to labor management.
“Being consistently mindful of employee health, welfare and the entire employment process from hiring to retirement is my priority,” said Rodriguez.
Steve Mamak, co-founder of Nature Gnaws stated, “we are beyond thrilled to have Andrea as part of our team. The growth we are experiencing calls for someone with the passion and experience to lead our HR efforts, and we are thankful to have her on board.”
