Mt Ascutney Hospital and Health Center (MAHHC) has announced that Jean Martaniuk has been selected by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) as the recipient of the 2017 HR Professional Award. Martaniuk, the MAHHC Human Resources Director, received the Award at the 2017 Annual Vermont Conference of the Society for Human Resource Management held at the Killington Grand Resort Hotel on September 28-29.

A veteran of more than 40 years at MAHHC, Martaniuk began her career at the Hospital in 1977 as a member of the Accounting Office, before moving to the Human Resources Department as an Accounts Payable/Payroll Technician in 1992. She was promoted to HR Director in 1994.

According to Vermont SHRM, the annual HR Professional Award “recognizes outstanding service to the HR community,” including work with the state council and Society of Human Resource Management, “leadership in the business community or to the civic community. The recipient represents the “best” in the HR profession in Vermont.”

Dr Joseph Perras, MAHHC President, CEO, and Chief Medical Officer, nominated Martaniuk for the prestigious award, saying, “Jean does a tremendous job in managing our organization’s greatest assets, its employees.  She’s always there to listen to and support all of our employees, and provides invaluable insight to the organization on staffing strategy, compensation, benefits, and professional development.” Dr Perras continued, “In addition to the skill with which she performs her duties at the Hospital, Jean is a regional leader in the field, as an active member of HR associations at the national and state levels. She also manages to contribute her time to other Windsor nonprofits, the Hospital Auxiliary, and more. This award couldn’t go to a better person.”
