John S Clark Company, LLC Promotes Julie Perkins to VP of Human Resources
Investment in Quality HR Leadership Enables High-Performance Construction Leader to Continue Delivering Exceptional Workmanship and Value
(Mount Airy, N.C.) Reliable high-performance construction leader John S Clark Company, LLC (JS Clark) is pleased to announce that Julie Perkins, PHR has been promoted to Vice President of Human Resources.
In her new position, the Mount Airy, N.C. native will address a multitude of personnel needs of JS Clark's team of construction experts well-versed in the most up-to-date building technologies and best practices in design-build, construction management at risk and general construction.
"In order to be careful stewards of the public and private monies invested in existing contracts and align our staffing for consistency with the current backlog of work, JS Clark has streamlined operations," said company spokesman Gene Kemp -- engaged by the Board of Directors to manage all business activities of JS Clark -- who explained this has meant letting some very talented people go.
In the first two quarters of 2012, JS Clark's talented team of professionals has completed more than 50 projects, Kemp explained. The company continues to operate three offices in North Carolina (Wilmington, Winston Salem, and its Mount Airy headquarters) and presently employs more than 60 quality professionals. This allows JS Clark to continue its quality performance on jobs, meet construction schedules, and provide warranty services as required.
According to Kemp, Perkins has been instrumental in making sure every individual leaving JS Clark has all the essential tools and information they need to successfully move forward into new positions, even keeping in touch with former employees during their transition to help access medical coverage and retirement benefits. At the same time, Perkins continues to diligently serve the company's existing staff on a variety of HR-related issues such as benefits, safety, wellness, communication, performance management, training and compensation.
"Our employees are focused on making sure projects are completed and customers are happy with the work they've done," Perkins said, adding, "It's my job to make sure we have all the right coverage in place for them to include all medical, dental, vision, and 401k retirement benefits so they can stay focused and not have to be concerned with HR issues."
Perkins joined JS Clark in November 2010 after holding long-term HR-related positions in the technology and apparel sectors. She earned her Associates degree at Surrey Community College and continued on to Gardner-Webb University, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree. Perkins maintains her certification as a professional in human resources (PHR) which is granted to HR professionals for focusing on program implementation; employing tactical and logistical orientation toward their work; and maintaining HR accountability within their organization. Perkins will be married 15 years this September and has two young children.
JS Clark's investment in quality HR leadership has enabled the company to put together a dynamic, dependable team of building professionals to address each client's facility performance needs and deal with the many challenges, seen and unseen, facing every construction project. The company continues to focus on finishing work on time and on budget within original contract specifications or in cases of expanded project scope.
