Revamping Amtrak’s HR Processes


Recently, Amtrak received the 2014 Global HR Top 10 Breakaway Leaders Award sponsored by Evanta which spotlights human resources leaders who are revolutionizing their company’s competitive position in the evolving economy.  Amtrak also received the Optimas Award for general excellence from Workforce magazine which acknowledges human resources and workforce management initiatives that achieve business results.

These awards recognize Amtrak’s business transformation that has reduced costs, restructured performance management and differentiated pay, strengthened career growth and development opportunities, implemented best-in-class recruitment and retention strategies and created a Total Rewards compensation and benefits structure.

“Our business transformation is being driven by the Amtrak board of directors and President and CEO Joe Boardman and his executive management team who are committed to fulfilling Amtrak’s mission of moving America where it wants to go while ensuring our customers get a consistent, high-quality travel experience,” said Chief Human Capital Officer Barry Melnkovic.
