Leah Trulik

HR Generalist, Department for People, ZIngerman's Service Network

Leah grew up in Ann Arbor and has been connected to Zingerman’s since early adulthood. She fondly remembers visiting Zingerman’s Deli as a college student to enjoy tasty sandwiches, flavorful coffee and desserts, and the cool vibe of the restaurant. Graduating with a degree in Psychology from the University of Michigan, Leah entered corporate banking as an HR generalist and gained experience in recruiting, training and development, performance management, and employee relations.

Leah returned to her Zingerman’s roots in the summer of 1990 and has been a key player in the Department for People (D4P) ever since. Leah serves multiple Zingerman’s businesses with HR support and guidance, playing a key role in sustaining organizational culture as well as achieving results through people. Leah teaches a variety of internal classes to Zingerman’s staff, including “Zingerman’s Employment Experience”, “HR for Managers”, “The Art of Great Performance Reviews”, “Caring Confrontation” and “Solving Performance Problems”. She also co-facilitates a Leadership Development program for Zingerman’s managers.

Leah says, “Zingerman’s allows me the perfect environment to combine my passion for people and love of really good food – where I can continually focus on making a difference in other’s lives thru a great employment experience!”
