Helen Scalise

Head of People

What are your credentials and past experience for working in your position?

After achieving a Masters of Science in Organizational development, I built up my work experience by traveling around the world - working in China, Costa Rica, France, and Germany.  

I worked in both Government and private sectors throughout my various roles, focusing on education, training, and development.

What do you like about working at S44?

I like working at S44 because there is a culture of always being open to new ideas. I feel that I can push myself past my current limitations and always think about what’s coming next.  

The CEO deeply cares about well-being and values people - which is fantastic as an HR business partner. So I can advocate for our team members’ well-being and improve productivity.  

I’m in a position to offer my support and be supported in an environment where collaboration is celebrated, and we’re all motivated to do our best.  

What’s your background?

I was born and raised in Germany but emigrated to the US in 10th grade. I love animals and currently have one dog and a cat, but my passion has always been horseback riding (I still go whenever the opportunity comes up).  

I’m now a Mom of two wonderful daughters and love spending family time together. Before working for S44 (once Suzer-Us), I worked in the education sector in Government and with social organizations.

What are the values that drive you?

I love supporting and caring for people and helping them grow in success. Therefore, I make sure that there are structures in place to make sense of all the chaos and uncertainty that can lead to stressful situations. By doing this, I fully support those I work with and help them identify where their strengths lie to help them progress in their careers.
