AHS and Kim Conner Honored at PHRA Awards Event

Automated Health Systems was honored recently by the Pittsburgh Human Resources Association as a finalist at their Engaging Pittsburgh Awards event held at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh. Nominated for two awards, AHS was a finalist in the Talent, Recruitment & Retention category for its already award-winning Corporate Health Challenge program. In addition, Kim Conner, Executive Senior Vice President of Human Resources at AHS came in as a finalist for the Leader of the Year award.

“I am so proud of the results that our hard work and literal sweat have achieved helping people find their path to a healthy lifestyle,” Kim Conner said, acknowledging the nod given to the Corporate Health Challenge.

The PHRA holds an awards event annually to recognize the outstanding achievements made every day by human resources professionals across the region. Attended this year by Ms. Conner along with members of her HR team, Al Eiler, President of AllTrain and other members of corporate management, the large group of event participants represented a broad cross section of area companies and industries.

“We certainly were in very auspicious company at the event,” Ms. Conner continued, “It was intriguing to hear about the various projects and methods being employed by diverse human resources departments to drive engagement.”

Reflecting on her finish for the Leader of the Year award, Kim said, “Although we did not win, we came out winners. Any opportunity to recognize the dedication of our employees is a big win for us.”

For over a decade the PHRA’s Engaging Pittsburgh: Innovative People Practices has recognized employees and employers from across the region who have demonstrated creativity in designing business practices that have significantly contributed towards organizational and employee achievements.
