    EPISODE DESCRIPTION:

    A workplace crisis can take many forms: Natural disasters, civil unrest, suicide and more. Prepare before the storm. People leaders should react with empathy, organization and teamwork. After all, preparing for a crisis is not a question of “if”. It is a question of “when”. Join us for a conversation with experienced HR leaders Lisa Leishman and Angie Clayson from Utah State University for this crucial conversation.

    TODAY'S GUESTS:

    Lisa Leishman is a graduate of Utah State University, receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing and a Master of Science in Human Resources. After graduation, Lisa worked for Logan City then she was hired by USU in Parking and Transportation where she ultimately became the Director of that department. She later became the Program Administrator for the MHR Program at USU then worked in the private sector at ELITechGroup for 7 years as the HR Manager. In 2019 she returned to USU as the Associate Director over benefits within the Office of Human Resources. HR is her passion and she has taught several HR courses at USU. She feels honored to hold the position she has and enjoys working with the most amazing team. Lisa has four children and one beautiful granddaughter.

    Angeline Clayson began her career in Human Resources back in 2000, not long after she graduated from Utah State University with a degree in Social Work. While looking for work in her field, she discovered the pay was not what she had hoped, so she broadened her interest in positions and found a job at Sinclair Oil Corporation (now HF Sinclair Corporation) in their Human Resources department. It didn’t take long for Angie to determine that HR was a career path she had an interest in. After nearly 10 years as an HR representative, supporting the recruiting at Sinclair, she left to gain experience administering employee benefits for Savage. 

    After a couple of years as a Benefits Specialist at Savage, Angie was provided an opportunity to move back to the Sinclair Oil Corporation. She was hired in their hospitality division at Grand America Hotels and Resorts as their Benefits Manager. Then in 2017, Angie decided it was time to move back to her hometown of Cache Valley and accepted the position of Benefits Supervisor in the Office of Human Resources at Utah State University. She was ecstatic when she got the job, and it was the best move she could have ever made because she absolutely loves the team’s dynamics. 

    Angie has a passion for decoding the benefit landscape, making it more accessible and user-friendly for both employers and employees as well as building a culture that breaks down mental health barriers. Angie has one beautiful teenage daughter who brings her immense joy, as well as her extended family and friends.
