Hall County Government has hired a new human resources director.
Hall County Administrator Jock Connell announced Friday that Dr. LisaRae Jones had been selected to lead the county's Department of Human Resources which oversees employee recruitment and development, the county's compensation and benefits programs, employee relations and safety and risk management.
Jones has more than 20 years of experience with human resources in both the private and public sector, including 10 years as the Human Resources director for the City of Kennesaw.
"LisaRae has completed health insurance analysis and made recommendations on self-insured programs, implemented wellness programs, led a compensation study to successful implementation, and she is well positioned to make an immediate, positive impact here in Hall County," said Connell in a press statement.
Thirty-six candidates from 10 different states applied for the position. That number was ultimately narrowed to three candidates who participated in teleconference interviews.
"Following those interviews, it became apparent that LisaRae held the experience, vision, and overall characteristics of what we are looking for in Hall County's next HR Director," said Connell.
Most recently, Jones served as the Human Resources director for a private manufacturing company in Winterville, Ga.
Jones' first day with Hall County will be June 15.
