Change in HR departments often takes off slowly with plenty of bumps along the way.
That wasn’t necessarily the case at Envoy Air Inc.
A fast-moving two-year transformation took flight at the Irving, Texas-based regional air carrier previously known as American Eagle Airlines. And helping to pilot the transformation was Envoy Manager of HR Field Services Danielle Griffin.
Griffin, 37, was selected to serve on Envoy’s core transformation team and apply her HR savvy to develop new and innovative processes. The transformation was one of the largest organizational change initiatives in company history. And it will affect all 15,000 Envoy workers.
“We needed a game-changing leader to facilitate it,” said Patricia Delgadillo, Envoy’s senior VP of administration and CFO. “Danielle was quickly defined as that leader. Our team leaned heavily on her experience to ensure that our transformation was as effective as possible.”
Griffin’s attitude and abilities assured company leaders that the program’s transformation would have a smooth takeoff and a flawless landing.
