With three decades of consulting, speaking, and in-the-trenches global Fortune 500 executive-level experience, Jill’s view about Employee Engagement is radically different. She shares with listeners that although Human Resources “owns” culture change, they do not own culture change. Employees will not re-engage unless senior leaders and managers fundamentally change the way they lead the company and their teams.
Jill began her career at AT&T and spent 22 years in the Telecommunications industry in the New York City area prior to founding her consulting firm in 2009. She works with the best and brightest leaders around the world to re-engage employees, improving productivity, retention, customer satisfaction, and revenue growth. Her clients include Novartis, ARROW, Orica Mining, Crocs, CSG International, TIAA, ACT, and numerous U.S. cities and non-profit organizations.
