Accomplished Human Resources and Employee Engagement Expert Joins F&H Solutions Group
Roy Cohen joins F&H Solutions Group as a talent strategist and expert in human resources, employee engagement and leadership.
F&H Solutions Group (FHSG), a national consulting firm specializing in employee engagement, human resources and labor relations, is excited to welcome Roy Cohen to the firm. He will carry out business development initiatives and support clients within the areas of employee engagement, human resources, talent engagement and retention strategies, leadership development and coaching and performance management.
Cohen has more than 35 years of corporate experience leading human resources, employee engagement and talent acquisition for well-known brands and companies, such as TruGreen, Bath & Body Works, Victoria’s Secret Fragrance, White Barn Candle Company, Target, Wal-Mart and United Technologies. His expertise includes identification and development of company cultures, enterprise-wide interventions and change leadership, employee engagement, executive coaching, training, compliance, benefits, compensation, talent acquisition, retention strategies, mergers and acquisitions, restructuring, organizational development and performance management.
“I am very excited to join the talented team at F&H Solutions Group and look forward to building relationships and strengthening the capabilities of the clients we support,” says Cohen.
Some of Cohen’s past achievements include serving as the chief human resources officer for more than 14,000 employees at TruGreen, the largest residential and commercial lawn care company in the United States and Canada. During TruGreen’s divestiture from ServiceMaster and its merger with Scotts Lawn Service, he helped identify and communicate the company’s culture, which boosted employee engagement from 45 percent to 68 percent; increased revenues to exceed $1.4 billion; and led to the corporate Memphis office’s recognition as one of the “Best Places to Work” for four consecutive years. Cohen’s team was responsible for talent acquisition efforts, training, leadership development programs, compliance, compensation and benefits. He and his team also led the successful conversion to the Workday human resources system.
Brad Federman, FHSG’s Chief Operating Officer, says, “Our clients will benefit greatly from Roy's strong enterprise-wide implementation background, as well as, deep and broad talent management expertise.”
In addition, Cohen built the first human resources team at Bath & Body Works retail stores, a $1.8 billion division of Limited Brands. During his tenure, the company grew to more than 1,700 stores and 32,000 employees in nine years within the United States and the United Kingdom. Cohen was instrumental in creating and introducing a unique brand culture that positively affected employee engagement and retention and also supported the company’s rapid growth. This success led to additional responsibilities, including human resource oversight of Victoria’s Secret Fragrance Stores (450 stores) and the creation of the White Barn Candle Company (300+ stores).
