Name: Inez Brown
Job Title: Benefits Analyst
HR Team/Work Unit: Disability Management

  • "She is always willing to help if you have a question."
  • "She helps mend the broken bridges when cases go south."
  • "We would most likely fall apart or be miserable without her presence."

What does Inez enjoy doing outside of work?
"I enjoy dancing, reading, doing crossword puzzles, going to concerts, and spending time with family."

Name: Jorge Martinez
Job Title: Academic HR Generalist
HR Team/Work Unit: Shared Services Team B

Few of many reasons why:

  • "He provides timely follow up and partners with clients to find solutions."
  • "He has gone the extra mile to help his clients with last-minute recruitment requests."
  • "He is always willing to help his team members and often shares best practices and a joke or two at our team meetings."
  • "His humor and high spirits are an asset to the team."

What does Jorge enjoy doing of outside of work?
"I really enjoy singing and am taking singing classes. I also love driving through the city, and as a way to combine the two I'm always singing in my car. I love to drive down California Street over to the Embarcadero, following the cable cars—and of course I'm singing."
