Companies win and lose based on the quality of their people. That's true in every industry and every market. And building winning teams requires a holistic approach, involving various stakeholders and disciplines.
As a talent consultant in various forms since the beginning of 2012, I've made it my job to help my clients build winning teams. From headhunting to recruitment marketing and hiring strategy to employee engagement and performance management, I help companies identify, attract, hire, engage, and develop the very best talent in the market, giving them a clear competitive advantage over their peers. And in the process, I help diverse members of the global workforce to be happier and more productive at work.
I love what I do.
Oct 2019 – Present
As a 2.5-year veteran of LinkedIn's Talent Solutions, I turn my focus from talent acquisition to people success: employee engagement and performance management. For every company in the world, its people are its most valuable asset. At Glint, we help companies maximize the success of that asset by delivering real-time insight into the engagement and performance of its workforce. Responding to these insights in real time - thanks to AI-driven action plans - makes happier, more engaged, and more productive employees; better managers; and higher-performing teams. What's more important to your business than that?
I bring this amazing platform to companies who know LinkedIn can help them hire best-in-class talent, but are just learning we can also help them retain, engage, and further develop that talent. It's an exciting time to be at Glint... and at LinkedIn.
