Following her nomination for the 2018 Game Changers awards, Caitlyn Jones made some major life changes. Jones moved from her role as human resources director of the Americas at Esaote to become the vice president of human resources at Arlington/Roe & Co. Jones, 28, also married, thus changing her last name from Plummer.
Before those changes, though, Jones was at Esaote, a medical equipment company. While there, she modernized their payroll and reporting, bringing the HR function into the 21st century, said Tim McNabb, vice president of sales at Esaote. She also changed the company culture. “Prior to Caitlyn’s arrival [our] general overall workplace was not happy and people did not enjoy coming to work,” McNabb said. To change this, she implemented open-door policies so employees could feel comfortable contributing ideas that were outside their areas of expertise.
