SOS International (SOSi) has announced that the company’s chief human resource officer (CHRO), Janet Hanofee, has been appointed to the Human Resources Certification Institute’s (HRCI) Board of Directors, the company reported on Monday. Hanofee will begin serving her two-year term on the HRCI Board of Directors beginning in January 2021.
“Since joining us in 2017, Janet has helped us prepare our workforce and adapt our operations to keep the business moving forward through corporate acquisitions, government shutdowns, and most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Julian Setian, president and CEO of SOSi and 2020 Wash100 Award recipient.
“Having a well trained, strategic HR team has been essential to keeping us competitive and overcoming the challenges we’ve faced over the past several years.”
Hanofee joined SOSi as vice president for Human Resources in 2017, and was appointed as CHRO in 2019. With SOSi, she is responsible for leading the company’s human resources, benefits and training team.
Hanofee has more than 15 years of human resources and benefits experience. Prior to her role with SOSi, she worked with Chenega Corporation, where she served as the senior director of Human Resources. With Chenega, she led corporate strategy development, benefits program design, government contracts compliance and auditing and training program development and implementation.
Previously, Hanofee served as the director of Human Resources for The Tatitlek Corporation, human resources manager for CH2M Hill and director of Human Resources for Harbor Enterprises Inc./North 60 Petroleum. Hanofee has worked closely with HRCI for more than ten years. Hanofee earned her Senior Professional in Human Resources certification through HRCI.
To become HRCI certified, candidates must meet the professional experience and educational requirements before taking the exam. In 2019, more than 13,000 HR practitioners tested for HRCI credentials. To maintain certifications, professionals must remain in an HR role and recertify every three years.
“The responsibilities for HR professionals are continuously evolving,” said Hanofee. “HRCI helps HR professionals enhance their skills, knowledge, and abilities to stay ahead of market trends, drive a positive corporate culture, and deliver business results.”
