Cait Naugle, Human Resource Generalist at Yazoo

We are pleased to announce that Cait Naugle has joined the company as Human Resource Generalist.

Prior to joining Yazoo, Cait was a long-time bartender/server before pursuing a degree in Elementary education. She obtained all the required credits and was on the brink of beginning a student teaching program where she decided to make a career change. Cait graduated from Penn State in 2020 with a BS in Labor Employee Relations/Human Resource Management.

After earning a degree at Penn State, she went on to work as a generalist for a local paper manufacturer. In this role, she entailed recruiting, running a co-op program for paper sciences, and handled union grievance procedures. She later went on to work for one of world’s largest food retail groups in a remote position to manage its New England Health Fund, as well as two other Locals in the New England/Jersey area. Cait completed many audits of the union employee’s fringe benefits, and balanced their ledgers in a monthly process. Through her experiences working in unionized workplaces, she knew it was time to make a switch. Currently residing in the New Oxford area and having heard many great things about Yazoo, she jumped on the opportunity to apply for the open HR role.

As a HR Generalist, Cait is the direct contact for all employees to ensure they have all their questions answered. Her responsibilities expand into onboarding new employees by making sure they feel welcome and encouraged from day one. She also plans and coordinates most of the company’s yearly corporate events, in which she enjoys as it is a switch from the everyday HR duties.

Outside of Work

In her spare time, you can find her doing something with her husband and two kids; 5-year-old son Bentley, and a 4-year-old daughter Ariel. They like to play Mario, go to the park, and watch the Netflix popular series, Stranger Things. In the rare moments that she gets to herself, Cait enjoys to go for a run or do something active outside.

Something you should know about Cait is that she is OBSESSED with anything spooky or Halloween. She could leave those decorations up all year if her husband would let her. Fun fact, she has won her neighborhood holiday decorating contest 3 years in a row! She takes her decorating very serious, lol.

Welcome to the team, Cait! We are excited to watch you thrive your role and help Yazoo to maintain its strong workforce for providing our customers with fast, friendly, and hassle-free service.
