Fouquette and Fronce accepted into Emerging Leaders Network program
Human Capital Services' Lindsey Fouquette, executive recruitment manager, and Kristi Fronce, Human Capital Supervisor-Central, have been accepted into TIAA's Emerging Leaders Network program.
The Emerging Leaders Network, or ELN, provides leadership development opportunities through training and interaction with peers in several areas of human resources from similar institutions, and covers a broad range of topics, including understanding the world of higher education and human resources, deepening understanding of human resources technical topics and growing leadership skills.
Fouquette and Fronce were selected from a field of approximately 100 applicants for the program, and will have multiple opportunities to form relationships, deepen their human resources knowledge, and reflect upon and build their leadership skills.
"I'm excited and honored to be selected for the next ELN cohort," Fouquette said. "This is a wonderful opportunity for continued development as an HR professional, which will allow me to better serve the campus."
"I'm so appreciative of the opportunity to not only grow my leadership skills, but also my overall human resource knowledge," Fronce said. "I look forward to networking with peers and bringing new ideas and knowledge to the HCS community at K-State."
Fouquette earned her certified staffing professional certification from the American Staffing Association and Certified Social Sourcing Recruiter from AIRS, demonstrating her commitment to the field. She serves as the communications coordinator for the Kansas Chapter of College and University Professional Association for Human Resources, or CUPA-HR, and is responsible for communications and social media strategy. She earned her Bachelor of Science in business marketing at Emporia State University and Bachelor of Science in digital media design at Colorado Technical University. She is pursuing her Master of Business Administration at Kansas State University.
Fronce received her Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification in 2015 and has been a member of two kaizen events at the university focusing on process improvement in HCS. She is currently a member of the Kansas Chapter of CUPA-HR. Fronce was involved in the initial implementation of Human Resource Information System, or HRIS, PeopleSoft at K-State in 1995 and has since been a leader on the functional side as the system has upgraded throughout the years. She supervises the staff responsible for employee data within the HRIS. Fronce was a member of the K-State Classified Senate for three years and was also chosen as USS Employee of the Year in HCS in 2001 and 2017. Fronce attended Kansas State University majoring in public relations journalism and brings more than 30 years of experience in the area of human resources.
TIAA, formerly TIAA-CREF, is one of two mandatory retirement plan providers at Kansas State University.
The Emerging Leaders Network program began in 2015 and its cohort will begin spring 2019.
