Hi, I'm Jonathan and proud to be the Director of Human Resources at Cantina. In my role, I lead efforts to make Cantina a great place to work by improving our hiring process, performance management, and benefits. Nearly two decades in HR, I’ve had the opportunity to redesign our company’s health plan offerings, implemented solutions for a human resources Information System (HRIS), applicant tracking and performance reviews, as well as creating Cantina’s salary structure. That last item makes me pretty popular around the office!
My previous corporate HR roles at BMC HealthNet Plan, WGBH, TransUnion, and Putnam Investments taught me the value of structure; Cantina is teaching me the importance of bravery and willingness to break out of the mold. My mission (and I choose to accept) is to make Cantina the best place to work.
Areas of Expertise and Interest:
Selected and implemented HR technology solutions for core HRIS, Applicant Tracking System, performance management and compensation, Talent Acquisition, Employee Relations and Organizational Development.
Other Fun Facts:
Working in a field that has a stereotype for not exactly being fun, so I try to bring an innovative mindset to the job by finding the latest and best HR practices for us. I am also an avid comic enthusiast. My favorites include X-Men, Wonder Woman and The Wicked and the Divine.
