Justin Huschka, 26, has been promoted four times in the past five years. He's currently HR business partner at Koch Business Solutions, which has 300 employees in Atlanta. His most recent promotion will send him in December 2016 to Koch Industries’ global headquarters in Wichita, Kan., where he will serve as talent acquisition manager.
The reasons for Huschka’s rapid ascent are clear. For starters, he led a proactive retention strategy involving face-to-face meetings with and surveys of top performers, gathering data for more fact-based decision-making. As a result, 96 percent of those surveyed were retained and 40 percent were promoted to a new role within the next year.
He also used strategic sourcing through LinkedIn and professional organization advertisements to target passive job candidates, increasing the quality of new hires and saving about $210,000 in recruiting agency fees.
He also spearheaded organizational branding efforts that included increasing the company’s Glassdoor ratings from 2.1 to 4.2 out of 5 and increased website traffic by 126 percent.
Huschka was one of 20 Koch Industries employees chosen for a six-month HR leadership development program.
Outside of work, he is studying for a master’s degree in human resources and employee relations and plans to graduate in spring 2017. He has a 4.0 GPA.
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis as an undergraduate student, Huschka is passionate about helping others with the disease, which caused him to lose 50 pounds in three months. He volunteers with the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America Georgia Chapter
