The city of Salisbury’s Director of Human Resources, Jeanne Loyd, has announced her retirement after 11 years of service to the city and its residents.
“Jeanne has been instrumental in building TeamSBY and making the city of Salisbury an incredible organization to be a part of. From ensuring team benefits and always keeping track of morale, to introducing policies and procedures that keep our employees’ best interests in mind, Jeanne’s thoughtful leadership and true concern for her employees will be missed,” said Mayor Jacob Day.
The Human Resources Department is responsible for administering the city’s benefits, developing and implementing strategies around talent acquisition, department accountabilities, succession planning and employment relations.
A lifelong resident of the Eastern Shore, Loyd came to work with the City of Salisbury in 2010 with over 25 years of Human Resources experience, which included policy development, benefits administration, training standards, performance measurement and developing personnel and their knowledge of employee management skills.
She has been instrumental in defining and ensuring the presence of Human Resources in every aspect of this City’s footprint, and has truly been a strategic partner with the City of Salisbury Administration and current leadership.
A main focus of her position at the city has been to champion process improvements to help make things more efficient for employees as well as making sure that employees have knowledge of benefits, worker’s compensation and more, as well as the development of onboarding methodologies and developing competencies for all areas of the organization.
Boyd has been a valuable source of experience and knowledge for the city of Salisbury, always working to advocate for city employees. Most recently, she has introduced a cloud-based, citywide, annual education program to help employees stay abreast of their rights.
“I have truly enjoyed my time working with and for the citizens of Salisbury,” Boyd said, “and I will forever cherish the relationships I have developed throughout my time here.”
