Employee Spotlight – Grace Dehn

February 1, 2017

Here at Flora, we feel as though we’re all one big family. Some of us are new to the company while others have been here for 20+ years. We each bring a unique set of qualities to the company. Therefore, we thought we’d post an employee spotlight from time to time so our subscribers can get to know our employees a little better.

Name: Grace Dehn
Title: Human Resources Manager (Canada)
What is Your Role at Flora?: There are many components to this role. My day-to-day will encompass activities from recruitment to HR policies/programs, development/administration to health & safety to benefits administration to disability management to employee communication, etc. My primary responsibility is to help Flora to create a safe and positive workplace for all of us.
Years with Flora?: 5 years – wow, the years fly by when you are having fun…
What brought you to Flora?: What attracted me to Flora is the type of quality products we manufacture and my desire to work for a company that I could be proud of. What keeps me here is the people. We have a dynamic, dedicated and fun group of staff. Flora really is a big family.
If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only take one Flora product with you, what would it be and why?: Baobites, Baobites, Baobites (US/CA)…not only are they nutritious, they are delicious, too!!!
It’s the weekend, what are you most looking forward to?: Spending quality time with my family… I love exploring and experiencing through the eyes of my 4 year old daughter. Even the tedious work can be fun when she gets involved.
If you could have one “super power”, what would it be and why?: Power to read minds—a lot of misunderstandings could be avoided if I could read minds. Having said that, this is a powerful gift. Once I have this power, then I need to “seek to understand then to be understood.”
Share something most people don’t know about you.: I lived in Sudan for about 1 year when I was about 5 years old. My father was transferred to Sudan to open a manufacturing facility. I went to a school in Africa for about a month.
Morning or night person?: Innately, I am a night person. However, my daughter is helping me to appreciate the early mornings.
We all try to eat healthy, but what is your guilty food pleasure?: Starbucks Frappuccino
Favorite quote: Be the change you seek in the world. –Mahatma Gandhi
