Our Experts

Talent Function stands out for the same reason our clients do: we select and develop extraordinary people — hyper-conscientious overachievers with great maturity, experience and insight. Everyone on Talent Function’s bench of domain experts comes from a recruiting discipline — even our office manager — and our direct experience makes the difference. We live Talent Acquisition, so we know what works (and what doesn’t).

Tracey Middlemas

VP TECHNOLOGY CONSULTING

“There’s nothing more rewarding than working with recruiters and managers to learn and understand their pain points and create the future state diagrams and project plans that will turn their biggest challenges into opportunities. I love helping clients improve their candidate experiences, and showing them how they can leverage and develop the strength of their employment brands.”
