Wells wins HR award

LIMA — Attorney Mindi Wells, founder and managing attorney of Wells Law, was selected for the HR Impact Award by Columbus Business First, which recognizes excellence in human resource professionals from micro to large companies across Central Ohio.

Wells’s over 30 years’ experience in human resources frames her practical approach when counseling employers on strategies to minimize workplace disputes and reduce discrimination, harassment, and employment law issues. She serves as an “outside in-house counsel” for businesses that lack an in-house attorney and drafts policies and handbooks, audits HR practices and procedures and advises companies on day-to-day workplace issues.

In nominating Wells for the award, Charlie Morrison, president of MCR Medical said, “Over time, Mindi has helped us transition from a family owned and operated business into a respectable small business that operates within a defined structure, with roles and responsibilities, organized processes, and support systems. We work on this system regularly, and Mindi helps us evolve. With her help, we’ve been included on Columbus Business First’s Fast 50 list for six consecutive years.”

Wells was honored at the 2022 HR Impact Awards Reception at The Wells Barn at the Franklin Park Conservatory on September 8.
