    Radio Show #443: The Connections Between Talent Alignment and Engagement.

    in Business

    Special Guest: Melissa Ortiz
    Following the completion of her MBA at Texas A&M, the past 15 years of Melissa’s career have focused on improving employee retention, matching the right people to the right seats within client organizations, and measurably improving Employee Engagement. Her focus area is Talent Optimization and her “why” is Better Work, Better World.
    The drive to help organizations harness the power of talent is Melissa’s core focus because of the meaningful impact her work makes on individuals and organizations, but also on their families and communities. The ripple-effect of talent optimization is far-reaching.
    In this episode, we’ll be talking about the connections between talent alignment and engagement and about the fact that the so-called Great Resignation is really about a Great Realignment. Alignment of talent to work, alignment of personal values to organizational mission. And the fact that when we’re a natural fit for the role, we can show up more authentically at work.
    Join us as we discuss the connections between talent alignment and engagement.
