Welcome Ilse Millan to the Human Resources Team!

The HR Department is delighted to introduce Ilse Millan, HR Generalist. Ilse’s primary responsibilities are supporting our BIS and Admin teams with onboarding, off boarding, and other HR projects.


Ilse’s Human Resources background includes recruiting, onboarding, and benefit administration to name just a few of her prior responsibilities. Ilse most recently worked for Engeo, a civil engineering firm where she was responsible for maintaining and coordinating pre-employment processes, assisted with recruiting, onboarding, and other HR support. Ilse holds a Human Resource Management Certificate, and she is currently obtaining her Bachelor of Art in Psychology from California State University, East Bay. Ilse is also fluent in Spanish and conversational French!


Ilse loves spending time with her family, the outdoors, and trying new recipes. From time to time, you will find Ilse catching up on her favorite Netflix series. Even though she is afraid of heights, Ilse almost became a certified skydiving instructor!


The Human Resources Department cannot be happier to welcome Ilse to our team!


Open Enrollment – 11/2 – 11/13/20

When the leaves start to turn red and gold, and when evenings turn brisk, our thoughts turn to cherished Fall activities such as pumpkin carving, Thanksgiving, and of course… Open Enrollment!


If you’re a full-time employee, Open Enrollment is your annual opportunity to review your current health plans and determine if you want to keep things the same or make changes. All full-time employees must go into the Open Enrollment system between November 2 – November 13, 2020, to make their elections or waive coverage for the upcoming plan year (effective date: December 1, 2020). Most SPG health plans will remain the same, but there will be some changes to our medical options, so you’re encouraged to attend the Open Enrollment meeting on October 28, 2020, at 5:00pm to learn more. Be sure to check your SPG email regularly, as additional information will be forthcoming.
