“It’s easy to become extremely overwhelmed when looking at the variety of talent management solutions on the market, much like a kid in a candy shop. As a former HR practitioner, I can certainly feel clients’ pain. Leveraging my management and technology background, I enjoy helping clients identify their business requirements and future process mapping in order to make better informed decisions about their systems and processes.”
