    SHRM Learning Objective: The F Word in Corporate America

    Speaker: Elizabeth Velez

    Speaker Bio:

    Elizabeth Veliz, MBA, SPHR (“Eli” as some of her friends and colleagues call her) specializes in business strategies and employee engagement with over twelve years in the human resource profession. 

    In her current role at Faneuil, Inc. she is the Vice President of Human Resource. Before starting with Faneuil she owned and operated Adelante HR Consulting, this former military spouse accompanied her husband – an active duty United States Marine – on his tour of duty in eastern North Carolina. While there, Ms. Veliz worked as the Director of Retention and Recognition in Human Resources for the region’s largest health care system – University Health Systems of Eastern Carolina Pitt County Memorial Hospital (now Vidant Medical Center). 

    Ms. Veliz was instrumental in improving overall organizational performance through the development and delivery of several leadership development courses focused on effective feedback techniques. She has the unique ability to mediate conversations and manage conflict at all levels of an organization. This gift has made her an effective business partner in very short periods of time given her need to move with the needs of the military. 

    Ms. Veliz has had several speaking engagements for the State of North Carolina, the VA Peninsula SHRM Chapter, Teledyne Systems and the 2013/2014 VA State SHRM Conference on the topic of feedback and was a contract instructor at Coastal Carolina Community College where she facilitated a wide range of leadership courses to local business leaders, the Marines at MCB Camp Lejeune, the City of Jacksonville, NC, Marine Federal Credit Union and ONWASA (Onslow County Water and Sewage Authority). 

    Ms. Veliz’s career – however – did not begin in HR. She considers herself a businessperson with an expertise in HR giving her a competitive advantage in her field. The foundation of her business and operations knowledge stems from her academic history having attended and graduated from Rutgers University College in Newark NJ with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, and from the University of Phoenix with a Masters in Business Administration in Human Resource Management. This foundation was further strengthened with real world experience working for such Fortune 500 giants as Xerox, The Document Company, ADP and Konica Minolta Corporation. These organizations gave Ms. Veliz the opportunity to learn about Corporate America, the ins and outs of business operations and yes; sales…the first few years of her career were in business-to-business sales. 

    Ms. Veliz is a skilled and dynamic facilitator whose passion for her work and the continued development and advancement of the human resources profession clearly comes through in her presentations.
