New HR Generalist Connects with Keiter Benefits and Core Values

Emily Courtright joined the Keiter HR team in November of 2022. She finds her role as an HR Generalist to be a balancing act between supporting the firm goals and policies and addressing team member concerns and needs. Her workday can include lending an ear to an employee that has a concern, sharing employee concerns to leadership, or going over benefit information with a new team member. 

Emily avoids a just check a box approach to HR, instead focusing on relationship building and collaboration with employees and leadership. Because of this, Keiter’s core values of collaboration, innovation, relationships, and accountability really resonate. According to Emily, “When one of our team members comes to me with a problem, I genuinely care about helping to find a resolution.”

Benefits that support health, financial, and personal well-being

“The Firm’s healthcare benefits were a major factor in my acceptance of the HR Generalist position. The affordability of Keiter’s benefits allows me to keep more money in my paycheck,” Emily states. Emily’s husband is diabetic and requires prescription medications. Keiter’s healthcare plan has provided additional cost savings for his prescription medications.

Keiter’s benefits extend beyond medical, dental and vision to include paid time off, 401k contributions, and overall personal wellness. She believes that for benefits to be effective, they must take into consideration each of these components. Emily has seen and experienced burnout in the past when holistic benefit offerings are not a priority in an organization. When employees are happy and whole it is reflected in the work they do, and Emily understands this.

Emily has been married for 14 years and has a 14-year-old son. Her son recently purchased his first car and fixing it up has been a family project. Emily enjoys Keiter’s generous paid time off which provides extra time to help with the car project as well as time to relax watching her favorite show on Hulu, ‘The Handmaids Tale’.

Simply put, the benefits at Keiter support Emily’s unique needs so she can pursue a fulfilling career and life. Learn more about a career at Keiter and our benefits.
