José

José has 25+ years of "learning experience" (most people call it work experience) centered around Employee and Organization Development as the core choice of profession. The focus throughout the “career” has been to “turn talent into performance while staying customer focused, socially responsible and profit driven”.

 

On a separate note, the outcome of these “jobs” revolved around ways and means to:

  • Ensure that client-facing results that are produced by people-intensive processes are managed well, produce error free results consistently and don’t get in the way of growth. This includes ensuring the human asset is kept sharp, empowered and productive in an enabling environment

  • Help organizations match people to a vision, hire for capability, nurture talent, manage performance, setup a repeatable, compliant procedural frameworks, use technology as an enabler, produce sustainable financial and customer facing results in a time – sensitive, regulated environment 

  • Help Identify and remove obstacles to growth (people, process, systems). These include identifying the problem, potential solutions, work with key stakeholders to build/drive culture change, setup functions from scratch that are critical to sustainable results. Outcome includes improving results (financial, customer, employee) in a repeatable and scalable manner (sustainable)

  • Help setup practices that impact ESG (environmental, Social, Governance) or CSR (corporate social responsibility) (Triple bottom line as it is called sometimes – people, profit, planet)

He is well versed in establishing strategy, formulating policies, deriving procedures, and executing them end to end. A majority of these practices were deployed in coordination and alignment with a larger, global framework while keeping it locally relevant and agile. Staying mindful of “re-usability and standardization” where needed, allowing for local needs while managing global expectations were part of the strategy.

A deep background in pure sciences, human behavior, instructional systems design, using technology as an enabler along with an eye for evaluating learning effectiveness across a diverse span of domains helps add value.
