This energetic presentation emphasizes the evolution of the Human Resources (HR) Department from a behind-the-scenes support group to a corporate culture leader in the organization. Learn how to incorporate some fun into HR to motivate, educate and inspire your managers, team members and HR staff members. Did you know that adding fun to the work formula eliminates burnout, develops trust and increases productivity and effectiveness? James’ enthusiasm and engaging presentation will inspire you and provide you with concepts that you can utilize with your organization and teams.    

The Learning Objectives Include:
•Transition your HR Department to a corporate culture leader in the organization
•Ensure your policy handbook is a resource instead of a weapon of destruction
•Abandon the fear and facilitate some fun in HR


James Abeyta Stevens is originally from Las Vegas, NM and is the Director of Human Resources at the Santa Ana Star Casino Hotel. He has been practicing in HR for over 20 years and still considers himself a life-long learner.

James is also a Licensed Mental Health Therapist in the State of NM and focuses on addictions, substance abuse and domestic violence. He uses a holistic approach in HR and counseling centered around reviving the human spirit and motivating individuals to meet and exceed their potential. This connection includes the integration of resilience, awareness and wellness approaches to both healing and business relationships and operations.

His extensive background in organizational psychology and corporate culture motivated James to transform the focus of his HR department from a traditional approach to being cultural leaders for the organization. This transition led to Santa Ana Star Casino Hotel being named one of the “Top Places to Work in NM” for the past eight years! James truly puts the “Human” into Human Resources!
