    Doing the “right” thing as an HR professional is sometimes easier said than done in today’s corporate environment.  But, no matter how tough it is, HR must rise to the challenge.  There is simply too much at stake to do otherwise.  From establishing guiding principles to devising systems for reporting and investigation to sometimes simply just standing up for what’s right, HR professionals have a critical role to play in creating ethical cultures within their organizations.  Learn why HR cannot afford to remain silent and what – exactly HR leaders should do to help their organization make sound, ethical decisions.

    Debbie Lopez has over 30 years of Human Resources experience.  She joined the Southern California Broadway Department Stores in 1981 and received the opportunity of a lifetime benefitting from their strong belief in promoting from within.  She went from Secretarial Assistant to the Executive Vice President of Personnel to in-store positions of Administrative Assistant, Assistant Personnel Manager, Employment Training Manager, Personnel Manager to Co-Regional Human Resources Manager for 10 stores from Santa Barbara to Santa Anita, CA.  She resigned in 1997 when Macy’s bought out the bankrupt Broadway Stores, Inc.  She worked for 8 years in manufacturing settings before moving to Prescott in 2005.  She joined Yavapai County Government in April, 2006 and feels that she has once again lucked out and is the happiest she’s been in her career, working with a great team of HR professionals and wonderful employees.  She has employee relations responsibility for half the County’s diverse departments and is also in charge of the training function for the County. When she’s not working she hangs out with her husband Larry and their Schipperke, Shelby and considers herself a consummate gardener, gambler, and cook (not in any particular order).
