The Rochester affiliate of the National Human Resources Association presented Rochester’s sixth annual HR Executive of the Year award to Bob Bourg, senior vice president of human resources at St. Ann’s Community.
Bourg began his career with St. Ann’s Community in 1999, and he has served as the senior VP of human resources since 2017.
For him, what makes an exceptional HR executive is the ability to maintain perspective at all times.
“It is easy to forget that everyone has different experiences and a unique perspective,” says Bourg. “They may not be the same as ours, but must be valued and respected. That’s how you build a great organization.”
The HR Executive of the Year award honors human resource professionals who are innovative, and are consistently preparing their organization for the future. Award recipients make significant contributions and have a positive impact to their organization, the HR industry, and the community as a whole. They demonstrate leadership, innovation, and operational excellence, all while inspiring others to excel.
“We have an HR team that cares about every single person who works at St. Ann’s,” Bourg said. “I am extremely fortunate to be part of such a talented, engaged, and fun group. This award is truly an honor, but it is a reflection of the amazing team and caring individuals who make our organization great. Our people make all the difference.”
