ATLANTA, May 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Jackson Healthcare, a leading provider of healthcare staffing services, announced the promotion of two human resource leaders in its corporate office. Robyn Smith was named Senior Vice President of Human Resources and Travis Dommert was named Senior Vice President of Talent Development.
The promotions are designed to provide the rapidly growing Alpharetta company with optimal support for current associates and increasing talent acquisition. The company's double-digit growth -- more than twice the industry average growth rate – means these two have the significant job of connecting talent with opportunities. Smith will focus on benefits, HR operations, Human Capital Management Systems, and policies and procedures. Dommert's focus will be on talent acquisition, training and development.
Robyn Smith has been an active participant in guiding the company's strategic direction, as well as its Human Resource functions, during her six years with the company. Under her guidance, Jackson Healthcare has been named Best Place to Work in Atlanta among large companies for three years (2014-2016) and was awarded first (2015) and second (2016) places among the Healthiest Employers in Atlanta. Smith is a member of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and is a graduate of Kennesaw State University with a degree in Management. She lives with her husband in Atlanta.
Travis Dommert is an accomplished talent management leader who has previously served as president of Jackson Health IT, a Jackson Healthcare company. As senior vice president of Talent Development, he will seek to attract, develop, and retain the nation's best, brightest, and most capable servant leaders. He is an endurance athlete/triathlete and previously the cofounder of a performance and accountability platform that helped business leaders implement the best practices of elite soldiers and athletes. Dommert earned an MBA from Emory University and an engineering degree from Northwestern University. He lives in Peachtree Corners with his wife and five children.
"As our 'Best Place to Work' honors from Fortune, the Atlanta Business Chronicle and others confirm, we are creating a best-in-class team that intuitively embodies our values," said Jennifer Dangar, Chief of Corporate Operations. "The key is to recruit, retain and grow superior associates who thrive in our unique culture, and these two outstanding leaders are helping us do just that."
