In my current gig, I lead talent acquisition and management for a multi-billion-dollar, 100% employee-owned construction company. No one hires our firm because we have bitchin’ cranes—although we do—clients hire us because we attract, hire, develop and retain the best people in our industry.
I geek out on analytics, succession planning, etc. and love it when we position folks to do their best work. That’s fun stuff. I tease bad HR people because I think we can all do better, myself included. That’s fun, too.
