Rosemarie Machala is the director of human resources, responsible for all aspects of HR, including recruiting and retaining top talent, training, enforcing the organization's HR policies, and administering health and welfare benefits.
Since joining ASPS in 2006, Rose has made numerous contributions to the Society's HR program, such as improving the employee recruitment process through in-sourcing and transitioning the employee benefits enrollment program, as well as all employee files, to a paperless format. She started her career at ASPS as an HR generalist and, shortly thereafter, was promoted to HR manager.
Rose has nearly 20 years of HR experience handling employee relations, benefits administration and training. Prior to ASPS, she spent 10 years at ServiceMaster, where she held several HR and project management positions.
She has taken continuing education HR courses at Northern Illinois University and regularly attends HR workshops in order to stay apprised of ongoing issues in the industry. Rose is currently pursuing her Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certification and is a member of the Society for Human Resource Management.
A resident of Brookfield, Ill., Rose enjoys spending time with her husband, two daughters and sons-in-law. She is a huge Chicago sports fan who never misses an opportunity to cheer on the Bears and White Sox. In her spare time, she loves to bake, workout and is learning how to play the piano.
