Andrea Ozias 
Director, Digital Media & Publishing 

If you’ve ever wondered about the overarching voice of our association publications, it’s essentially an amalgam of contributors with one unpredictably fun, passionate and noteworthy presence: Andrea Ozias, our director of digital media and publishing.

Ozias celebrates her 18-year employment anniversary this month, with a spotlight on her influence, widescale achievements and fierce dedication as a loyal, bold and productive member of the WorldatWork family.

Workspan: How many different hats have you worn with WorldatWork? What prepared you for the challenge?
Ozias: My roles at WorldatWork have changed quite a bit through the years, and I think that’s what’s kept me on board for nearly two decades — things never get boring! I started on the editorial team as a staff writer and editor, and also served as editor for Workspan and WorldatWork Journal, book publishing manager, manager of the onsite library we used to have in Scottsdale, manager of communications, and manager of social media. Honestly, I think my background as a journalist is what helped me prepare for changes as they came along. As a newspaper reporter, every day brought a new story with its own unique challenges. Solving the storytelling was a daily endeavor, and it helped me to be flexible and roll with the changes.

W: How difficult (or easy) is it to publish with WorldatWork? Do you take bribes in dessert or wine?
O: Ooh, bribes in dessert and wine? Is that allowed? Haha! Seriously, I think the ease in publishing with WorldatWork really comes down to the individual contributor. Is the author truly intent on sharing knowledge versus trying to sell his or her services? Is the author willing to take reviewers’ comments in stride and see it as an opportunity to tell the best story that readers will appreciate and value? If the answers to those questions are “yes,” then I think it’s easy to publish with us. It gets more difficult when authors dig in their heels and are unwilling to consider feedback. Our primary goal is to educate and inspire our members, and it’s in authors’ best interests to join us in that effort.

W: How did it feel to be the voice of WorldatWork in the WorldatWork mobile app at the Total Rewards Conference & Exhibition in Dallas this year?
O: Hmm … I don’t know if anyone was supposed to know who was behind the voice of WorldatWork this year! That said, I loved the opportunity to connect with our conference attendees via the app. It’s a casual communication vehicle, so it was fun to be “required” to watch the app feed for questions and comments — and to see the great pictures attendees took. I love serving our members, so speaking on behalf of the association to our members really fed into that passion.

W: What should members expect from WorldatWork news (Workspan Daily) and publications (Workspan, WorldatWork Journal) in 2019?
O: Better, faster, more relevant. Comp and ben will always be our core, but we’ll continue to introduce topics that may be tangential to our traditional space — and some of it may surprise our members. That’s OK. My goal is to drive our editorial team to produce content that’s as timely as possible and addresses the pain points our members are experiencing in their daily work, even if it’s not in our traditional space. I want WorldatWork to be the go-to place for members when they need news and information that affect their work.

W: What do you like to do away from the office? Rumor has it that you attended ComicCon in Phoenix this year. How was it?
O: I love to read, and I took up knitting a couple of years ago. But I’m also a wife and mom of two boys, so many of my activities and interests are tied to my family’s activities and interests. It may sound self-sacrificing (or perhaps a little pathetic), but it’s not: I love the new experiences I wouldn’t otherwise encounter, and Phoenix Comic Fest is a perfect example of that. This was my first year attending with my husband, Ryan, and it was great. The people there “all seemed to be happy to be around other like-minded individuals. Romulans and humans got along swimmingly! My favorite part, though, was the opportunity to get a photo with William Shatner. After growing up watching Star Trek, it was amazing to see and hear him in person. Of note, his voice is SUPER deep (but I hear years of cigars and whiskey will do that to a person. I’m keeping that top of mind for myself.).
