Meet Poly – HR & Operations Supervisor

Poly has been making dreams come true for almost three years, and we’re lucky to have her as part of the Dream Factory team. She graduated from the University of Central Florida with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing. Poly is integral to the success of our company as the HR & Operations Supervisor, and her support is felt by everyone at Dream Factory. We asked Poly to take a moment from her busy schedule to answer some questions about herself:

 

What’s it like working at Dream Factory? Dream Factory Poly

I consider myself truly lucky to be part of such an awesome team! My first position with the company was Executive Assistant. In this role, I supported both the CEO and COO in day-to-day coordination of business operational activities and office management. Three months later, I was promoted to my previous position as Operations Coordinator where I provided support with all phases of projects from initiation to closure. I aided in planning, monitoring, and coordinating schedules and tasks within the project team along with other project management responsibilities. I’ve been promoted to my current role as HR & Operations Supervisor 4 months ago, and in this position, I act as the lead person in the delivery of human resource services with specific responsibility for providing information to our employees. I am responsible for processing paperwork of new hires and existing employees, onboarding employees, facilitating Performance Review planning and scheduling, assisting in implementation of employee moral building activities among other HR related responsibilities.

 

What led you to the world of marketing?

When I started UCF, I was unsure which program in the College of Business that I wanted to pursue a major in. After experience with a couple of internships and business classes, I made up my mind and graduated from UCF with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing. I am a big “people-person,” and marketing has allowed me to connect and engage with people. I also like the fact that marketing is always changing, since I get bored easily!

 

What’s your shining moment at Dream Factory?

A couple of months ago I expressed interest in Human Resources. I took the SHRM Essentials of Human Resources course where I learned the basics of HR and gained valuable knowledge that helped me build a solid foundation in HR management.

I enjoy serving as the supporting “bridge” that connects our production team and upper management and I thought this would be a great opportunity for me. I have the need to understand that what I am doing fits into the bigger picture and it’s my responsibility to ensure I am helping employees and the overall company to reach business objectives.

I am currently studying to receive my SHRM-CP certification to enhance my effectiveness in my current role.

 

What do you do when you’re off the clock?

I love high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts! I cook every single night and binge-watch shows on Netflix before going to bed. I am currently alternating between “How To Get Away with Murder” and “Bates Motel”. I also love to travel, I spend a quite amount of time planning and researching which country I want to visit next.

 

What’s an interesting and possibly unknown fact about you?

I have a couple that I would like to share:

  • I have 8 tattoos and I plan on getting more (probably another 3 or 4)
  • I never got a speeding ticket – and I hope I never will.
  • I eat broccoli and tofu every single day for lunch – and believe it or not, I love it!
