MEET THE TEAM
There is a good blend of backgrounds, skills and personalities that brings a good balance to our team
Once upon a time, we were hiring managers and understand the challenges encountered when outsourcing Talent Acquisition. As such, we joined INGENIA because we all care about people, are hard workers, love doing the right things for our customers and candidates. A group of innovators, we enjoy experimenting, trying new ways of obtaining better results and challenging the “norms”. Simply put, we care.
Our proven model and tools allows us to work on a national and global level. With presence in Boston, Miami and Houston, we are a distributed team, permanently connected through collaborative tools, working under a responsible freedom model, adapted to the reality of the new environment and our customer needs.
