CPO Hendrix has extensive senior human resources experience, as well as expertise in cross-functional process improvement. He deploys this expertise to integrate organizational change with business strategies, together with improvements and supports for employees.
HPSJ CEO Amy Shin said: “HPSJ has invested in our employee growth, to provide great local job opportunities, and being an employer of choice. Evert Hendrix has built a successful human resources career by understanding that the hiring of an employee is only the beginning. With leadership experiences focused in California health care organizations, he has deep, practical experience in melding professionals from across the spectrum of health and business-related fields into strong teams that, working together, achieve measurable results for our community’s well-being.
