Kristin Ethridge Selected as Finalist for Atlanta Business Chronicle’s 2019 HR Excellence Awards

Kristin Ethridge, Bennett Thrasher’s Campus Recruiter, has been named a finalist for the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s 2019 HR Excellence Awards as one of three contenders for this year’s Rising HR Star.

The HR Excellence Awards honor human resources professionals who have achieved new heights by using innovative strategies, exemplary dedication and outstanding performance to drive their business forward. The Rising HR Star award recognizes human resources professionals who are 35 years old or younger and who have already made a measurable impact within their organizations.

As Bennett Thrasher’s Campus Recruiter, Ethridge leads and manages the firm’s campus recruiting efforts and is committed to finding top talent from universities across the region in order to grow and advance the firm. Recently, Ethridge spearheaded the creation of the firm’s new careers microsite,, which was designed to attract entry-level hires and interns from colleges and universities across the Southeast.

A main feature of the microsite includes a campus calendar, which informs prospective hires of when the firm’s recruiting team will be at their school so they can schedule in-person interviews. Additionally, it highlights career paths at the firm, encourages direct contact with a recruiter and outlines the benefits of joining the Bennett Thrasher team.

Ethridge will be honored at the HR Excellence Awards Ceremony hosted by the Atlanta Business Chronicle on Thursday, June 13 at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, where the winners will be announced.
