Rebekah Salayka

Human Resources Advisor

Rebekah wears many hats at Leibel Insurance, but her primary role is as Human Resources Advisor. She brings with her a diverse portfolio of HR experience gained in the Oil & Gas and Transportation sectors in Calgary, along with a brief stint in Advertising where she learned she most loves the “people side” of a business. Upon return to the Edmonton-area, she took some time to raise her two cheeky – yet charming – daughters, before returning to the workforce in the Fall of 2016 when she joined Leibel Insurance Group.

She passionately believes that Human Resources is about building and nourishing relationships with staff and management alike, along with offering the best possible service to the business as a whole. If you want to get her really excited, ask her about HR and what she thinks is the key to success in the profession is. (It’s not just the people, but communication and how to connect it with organizational needs.)

As a parent to young children, Rebekah thinks spare time is an oxymoron. Nonetheless, she spends her “free” time as social coordinator to her daughters, while occasionally fitting in opportunities for tea at the movie theater (yes, they serve tea now), good wine and food, and the occasional shopping trip.
