Nomination Title: Jamie Minier-President, The RightThing, LLC

Describe for the judges the activities and accomplishments of the nominated executive during the eligibility period (up to 500 words):

What does it take for today’s generation of women to succeed in business? Jamie
Minier knows. As a college intern who rose through the ranks to company
President of a fifty-million dollar enterprise, Jamie’s career has been noteworthy.

Starting as a marketing intern with Selective Staffing in 1995, Jamie was hired
full time as a marketing associate upon graduation. In 1998, Selective Staffing sold to
Aon consulting where Jamie continued to take on increased responsibility and was
eventually appointed Assistant Vice President. In 2003, Selective Staffing founder
Terry Terhark left Aon and formed The RightThing where Jamie was appointed
Marketing Vice President in 2006. In this role, she was instrumental in building
brand, growing employees, client base and revenue by over 160%. Named Chief
Operating Officer in 2007, Jamie led the company in opening the industry’s first
stand alone recruitment operations center, and was a key player in The
RightThing’s game changing acquisition of AIRS. Promoted to company President
in August of 2008, Jamie established a comprehensive global outsourcing solution
and introduced a recruitment process outsourcing solution to the small and
medium business market. Jamie also oversaw the realignment of The RightThing’s
operational delivery model by establishing strategic Centers of Excellence in
global recruiting, mining and more. As a testament to Jamie’s ability to deliver
relevant solutions in a time of need, The RightThing launched a successful new
outplacement solution for companies looking to downsize that cut costs by up to
50% and allowed companies to maintain a better relationship with transitioning
workers. Growing The RightThing’s national footprint, Jamie also oversaw the
opening of a California office and helped lead the company to record breaking
quarters in both Q3 and Q4 of 2008. Jamie’s leadership also helped drive the
company toward the designation of the industry’s number one provider in HRO
Today’s annual rankings.

Serving in many different operational areas throughout her career has helped Jamie
keep a good perspective on the importance of recognizing and rewarding
employees. Jamie shows appreciation through company-wide weekly e-mails,
employee acknowledgements at staff meetings and sends birthday and
anniversary cards to each employee. Jamie’s impact and involvement on company
culture has been one of the driving forces that earned The RightThing a designation
on SHRM’s “Top 25 Medium Companies to Work For in America” list for three
consecutive years.

Securing the role of President at the age of thirty-four is a testament to Jamie’s
success however, in her biggest role of all, Jamie is a mother of two, one with
special needs. Jamie makes it a priority to be an active leader, speaker and
mentor for other executive mothers, providing advice and support to help them to
succeed in both roles. Jamie was recently recognized by HRO Today as an HRO
Superstar, a designation given to individuals who have made a major impact on HR
Outsourcing in 2008 and are leading the way in 2009 and also named a finalist in
the annual Human Resources Outsourcing Association awards as Executive
Provider of the Year.
