So, who am I? That's easy... I'm an HR Business Consultant for Alabama Power Company, one of the OpCo's of Southern Company, where we generate and supply electricity to the majority of Southeastern US. Prior to joining the team in late 2007, I was a Business Development Manager for Aerotek, and before that, a General Manager and Recruiter for Ruby Tuesday restaurants, back in the day when being a restaurant manager was cool. ...Wait, scratch that last part.
As an HR & Talent Pro, my interests lie in the busy intersection of talent, business results, technology, and specific strategic thinking, all with a futurist's mentality of opportunity. So, what's that really mean, you ask? I believe that as next generation HR pros, it is our duty to stand alongside our leaders, at all levels of the organization (VPs, Directors, Managers, etc.), armed with the information and tools critically necessary in order for organizations to successfully attract, recruit, develop, performance manage, manage talent, and retain a rapidly (and constantly) changing workforce --- from the board room to the break room. Let's face it, you know it needs to be done.
