Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) May 3, 2006
HireDesk™ a division of Talent Technology Corporation (TTC) and an award-winning provider of recruitment and hiring software solutions, today announced the appointment of Rand Gottschalk as Director of Human Resources Consulting Services. Gottschalk will take leadership of the company’s consulting services practice, with oversight of assignments ranging from competency analysis and modeling, to quality-of-hire implementation projects, return-on-investment research, recruiting best practices benchmarking, and related assignments in the talent acquisition and retention arena.
According to Dr. David Jones, head of HireDesk’s corporate product area, “We know that delivering recruitment and hiring software solutions requires not only the best technology, but the most creative advisory services. Rand shares our philosophy that software-as-a-service hinges on exceptional service.” Jones continued, “Rand’s experience providing consulting services is consistent with our philosophy that technology only works when creative people are part of the solution.”
Gottschalk’s more than twenty-five years industry experience includes delivering HR consulting assignments in the United States and internationally with clients such as Saturn Corporation, Philip Morris, Ford Motor Company, Capital One, Pepsico, and other international leaders. He has held both frontline project and senior staff management positions with HR consulting companies such as HRStrategies, Aon Consulting Worldwide, and Personnel Decisions International (PDI).
According to Gottschalk, “The world of technology has affected recruitment and hiring processes fundamentally. I see HireDesk as an emerging leader in that domain.” He continued, “What excites me most is the opportunity to make that technology work at its best – by making sure that the best practices, the best research, and the best change management solutions are integrated with the technology. That will be my mission at HireDesk.”
In addition to leading the HireDesk HR consulting services group, Gottschalk also will work closely with Dr. Leaetta Hough Director of TTC’s Knowledge Center, to frame client services assignments in ways that take most advantage of the Center’s leading-edge research, development, and best practices initiatives. He also will be responsible for working with HireDesk partners, ensuring that candidate assessment, legal compliance, and other HireDesk partner solutions are integrated seamlessly in client implementations.
