An independent panel of judges based their top five selections on the candidates’ role and success in established the HR function as an integral part of their organization, management skills and the candidate’s contributions to the HR profession.
For a quarter century that the magazine has recognized a HR Executive of the Year with only 83 individuals named to the honor roll since 1988. The five executives have been profiled in the October 2013 issue of the Human Resources Executive, published by The LRP Magazine Group, an LRP Publications Company that is headquartered in Pennsylvania.
Stoik Dymond was named a top five human resource executive for having transformed the human resource department at Graebel into an effective, employee-focused team around the world. Among the key factors that led to this honor was her creation and leadership of the global mobility organization’s Well-Being Program. The successful adoption of this diverse program played a major role in Graebel countering year-over-year, double-digit healthcare insurance increases that the vast majority of other organizations have experienced in the U.S. Graebel employees have realized a zero increase to their healthcare premiums for 2 consecutive years.
Additionally, Stoik Dymond has been instrumental in the rapid deployment of country-specific policies along with the relocation or recruitment and training of the Company’s global workforce during its offshore expansion into Europe and Asia that began in 2008. During the organization’s explosive growth and workforce transformation the last five years she has played a significant role in employee engagement, retention and succession planning at the privately-held firm.
Chief Executive Officer William Graebel SGMS remarked, “Mary’s extensive background in global workforce management and her vision has brought both immediate and lasting results in our quest for Graebel to become the undisputed employer- and supplier-of choice in global mobility.”
Stoik Dymond joined Graebel in 2008. In her twenty-plus year career she has held executive positions at concerns such as the Westmoreland Coal Company, Cenveo, and ACX Technologies now known as Graphic Packaging International. There she led human resource teams and administered employee and labor relations, diversity management, and oversaw ongoing educational programs. Additionally, Stoik Dymond served on committees in charge of compensation, health, and safety and risk management prior to and while at Graebel.
