Springfield, MO – KPM CPAs & Advisors (KPM) is pleased to announce that human resources (HR) director Sara Choate has been named the 2017 Springfield Business Journal (SBJ) ‘Top Local Human Resources Professional,’ an individual honor in conjunction with their Dynamic Dozen Awards. This distinction is awarded annually to one local HR professional who plays a key role in their company’s overall HR activities, including employee relations and training, benefits administration, and staff satisfaction.
“We are very fortunate to have Sara on our team. The last few years have been critical in KPM’s overall development and growth as a firm, having merged with other local firms and increased our talent recruitment efforts. Sara also has launched important human resource initiatives, including our coaching program, which incorporates the Gallup® StrengthsFinder® assessment for strengths‐based training for every team member. In that regard, she possesses a unique combination of strengths that make her an asset to any team. Sara is a strategic thinker with the ability to adapt to on‐going challenges and execute initiatives flawlessly,” said KPM Managing Shareholder Jim Lewis.
Sara’s profile will be featured in an upcoming SBJ publication, and she, along with this year’s other individual and Dynamic Dozen company honorees, will be recognized at the SBJ ‘Dynamic Dozen’ reception and award ceremony on May 11 at The Old Glass Place.
