employee spotlight Anthony Leto

'I had always wanted to get into human resources because I liked the aspect of being a support to employees.'

If you were to pass Anthony Leto in the office, you would receive a welcoming smile and a, “Hello, how are you doing?” Anthony’s passion shows. His enthusiasm for supporting employees and helping them grow makes him stand out in his role as Human Resources and Benefits Specialist at Wellabe.

“I had always wanted to get into human resources because I liked the aspect of being a support to employees, but it always felt outside my reach,” Anthony says. “However, [my Wellabe coworker] Diana Lei-Butters helped me get a foot in the door at Drake University's HR department, where I built the skills to get to Wellabe once there was a role available.” 

Anthony has the drive to learn as much as he can in his role every day. His variety of duties allow him to combine his benefits knowledge with his excitement about engaging employees.

“I get to do a lot of fun stuff as a Human Resources and Benefits Specialist,” Anthony says. “I onboard new employees. I’m in charge of our summer interns’ 10-week experience. I run our Des Moines Corporate Games (DMCG) efforts, teach Crucial Conversations, and provide various support in the human resource department, particularly to Learning and Development and benefits.” 

Anthony takes pride in leading the DMCG efforts. 

“I'm proud of achieving third place in DMCG as a company last year, but I'm prouder of the 35% employee participation we had,” Anthony says. “It was a great opportunity to get to meet people in the company I do not ordinarily work with, and we had a lot of fun!” 

Anthony’s goal is to continue to get to know employees and the business as much as possible to offer the most support he can.

Fun fact
Anthony was a literature major in college and was featured in the 2005 Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities.
