HRx Radio – Executive Conversations

Guest: Dawn Burke, VP of People for Daxko
Episode: 225
Air Date: February 14, 2017


Dawn is the VP of People for Daxko, a leading software provider for member-based organizations nation-wide. As VP of People, Dawn and her team have one primary job: To provide all team members a rewarding career experience. It’s that simple. In addition, the team is responsible for finding great talent, developing team members, and preserving Daxko’s unique culture – a culture recognized in Fortune Magazine as one of the “50 Best Small and Medium Workplaces” in the US.

Dawn is a proponent of the new HR. HR focused on team member engagement (not policy policing), uncovering people’s truths, strengths and passions, finding ways to present options to leaders and say “yes” to people.

In addition to her HR experience, she is a national speaker, a writer for and hosts the talent management video series “No Scrubs”. In addition she writes for, and contributes to,, and SHRM conference blogs. She’s been recognized as a Top HR Innovator and The Top HR Executive for Medium Sized Companies by the Birmingham Business Journal, and gives back to her hometown by serving as President of her local SHRM chapter.

Most importantly, she is addicted to TV, loves to cry at movies, thinks wine and a wheel of Brie make a well-balanced dinner, and sings in her car daily. Her husband and cat are the Yin to her Yang.
