Cleveland (August 19, 2021) – Crain’s Cleveland Business has recognized ExactCare Human Resources Director, Emily Hembree, with the Excellence in HR Awards in the Rising Star category. Hembree was recognized Wednesday, Aug. 18 at a virtual awards event for the Crain’s Excellence in HR Awards.
The HR Rising Star award recognizes up-and-coming HR professionals who demonstrate a combination of achievements, industry and community involvement—and showcase the potential required to lead the next generation of human resources professionals.
Hembree joined ExactCare in 2015 and has since played an integral role in supporting the company’s growth from 250 to more than 800 employees—half of which joined ExactCare in 2020, adding the complexity of onboarding new employees during the COVID-19 pandemic. Concurrently, the team was rapidly shifting to accommodate supporting a majority of employees working remotely while still managing the daily ongoing HR business needs.
“No task is too tall for Emily,” said Veronica Oubayan, Senior Vice President of Human Resources Operations for CarepathRx and ExactCare. “She prides herself on operational excellence and is always looking for opportunities to improve efficiency. With her process enhancements and leadership, she has enabled the HR team to effectively support more than 40% growth in the size of the workforce without adding to the HR team itself. That’s a really remarkable achievement.”
During this rapid growth, Hembree maintained an intense focus on employee engagement and an award-winning culture, as exhibited by ExactCare’s recent awards including Top Workplaces USA, Top Workplaces NEO and Smart Culture.
Oubayan adds, “At ExactCare, we believe in putting our patients first. Emily not only shares in this belief, but she understands that in order to put our patients first, we must provide our employees with a culture and workplace where they can thrive, succeed and be inspired to serve our patients. Emily strives to create a culture that is inclusive and high performing to enable the company to grow and impact the lives of many more patients across the country.”
