Kristin's Story

Business Area: Corporate
Degree: Business Administration

My career has naturally evolved and kept my interest. I really haven’t had time to stop and think, “What’s next?” As I moved back to the Des Moines area several years ago, I was looking for a position that would challenge me and provide a wide variety of work. I’ve found that at The Principal.

In eight years, I’ve held three positions within Human Resources. Initially, I was a Human Resources generalist where I consulted with leadership in our global asset management business on various people-related topics. Then, I became a senior consultant creating and administering executive and officer development initiatives. As a lead organizational development consultant, I’m working with others to build a change management model and tools that can be used by employees and leaders throughout the organization on larger-scale projects and lead our organizational learning teams.

I’ve had the pleasure of participating in several other activities too. I’m on the Emerging Leaders Initiative committee for United Way and have led the change and communication efforts for a two-year project within Human Resources to implement and execute a new service delivery model.

It’s the challenging work and innovative culture that keep me engaged. But, it’s the people I work with and the relationships that keep me here. Thanks to The Principal, I’ve found some of the greatest friendships at work.
