After 32 years serving in Human Resources at UF Health Shands, Janet Christie, MBA, senior vice president for HR, has announced her retirement. Since 1990, Christie has been the guiding force behind the vision and direction of human resource functions for our hospital system.
Christie’s responsibilities have been vast and varied, as she has seen – and helped – Shands Hospital grow into the UF Health Shands we know today. She maintained oversight for employment and recruitment, employee relations, compensation, benefits, payroll, human resource information systems, human resource development and occupational health – just to name a few key functions.
Needless to say, Christie’s steady leadership skills, passion for her work and numerous accomplishments have left an indelible mark here at UF Health Shands.
Perhaps most importantly, the connections she made with people are what come up time and time again when people talk about Janet. She has been a beloved and respected presence at UF Health Shands for decades, and she will be missed!
Below are just a few quotes from colleagues, some favorite photos and a video that speak to Janet’s leadership abilities, warmth and sense of humor.
Congratulations on your retirement!
