Oertli 2016

I was asked a few years ago by a friend and colleague – “Where is the innovation in your space?” I was struck by the obviousness of the question and more so by the fact that I didn’t have a good answer.

I’ve worked in human resources roles for many years and I’ve seen it all. I’ve watched trends in HR come and go but one fact remains – people are beautifully messy. And no software for performance appraisals or rigid vacation policy is going to change that.

Francine Katsoudas, CHRO of Cisco, said it best – “Let’s break HR.” I’m doing my part to reimagine the HR space, identify complex people challenges, and find creative ways to solve them.
