I work with the various business units of KellyOCG to help architect solutions for clients with global expansion plans. Translation: I help clients cut through the workforce challenges arising from rapid globalization. I also spend a good deal of time on thought leadership activities, whether that’s an opening keynote for a SHRM State Conference, a guest lecture at a university in Asia, or a workshop on globalisation for a roomful of Indians. I also author white papers on current issues affecting HR professionals. Previously based in Singapore, I now camp out at our World Headquarters in Detroit (Troy), Michigan, USA. Before this role, I was head of international HR for Kelly. I've spent the last 19 years of my career focused on cross-border HR.

Watch this clip to find out what's really important to Gen Y's in the workplace. Watch the clip now.
