PeopleClues, an industry leader in workplace assessments, today announced that Bryan Wempen has been named the company’s chief strategy officer. In this role, Wempen will focus on PeopleClues’ global expansion, solution development and channel strategy. As PeopleClues continues its strategic growth, social media expert and former HR practitioner, Cathleen Carlos, also joins the company as its new client relations manager.
As chief strategy officer, Wempen will work with the company’s integrated partners, resellers and direct clients to develop future offerings, expand PeopleClues’ market presence, and help clients worldwide improve their candidate experience with validated and user-friendly workplace assessments. Wempen formerly served as executive vice president of Strategic Alliances at PeopleClues. Prior to joining the company in 2008, he was a founding partner of both Reliant Live and MacKay Edge Assessment Group/Talent Strategy, a company which served more than 500 clients globally. Earlier in his career, Wempen spent several years in staffing as founder and president of Corporate Staffing Technology and as regional VP and officer for Labor Ready, Inc.
Bringing extensive industry expertise and thought leadership to his role, Wempen was recently named to HRExaminer’s Top 25 Pulse of HR Influencers. He also co-hosts HR’s #1 internet radio show, DriveThruHR; presents regularly at HR and social media focused events; and can be followed on Twitter @BryanWempen.
“Bryan has been essential to PeopleClues’ strategic growth, and to developing our valued partnerships over the past few years,” commented Julie Moreland, president of PeopleClues. “As PeopleClues continues to broaden its footprint in the U.S. and globally, Bryan also will play an important role in developing and delivering the workplace assessments that help companies identify and grow strategic workforces.”
As PeopleClues’ client relations manager, Carlos will build relationships with PeopleClues’ resellers and their customers to help them become more successful in their recruiting efforts. Drawing from an extensive social media background, she will also be responsible for promoting and developing PeopleClues’ brand and online presence. Previously, Carlos served as a Human Resource assistant for Community Care College where she participated in the screening, interviewing, onboarding and training of new hires, and managed the organization’s employment brand on social media channels. As a screening specialist at Global HR Research, she performed background checks, reference verifications, and other talent screening for employers.
Carlos blogs at GetHiredbyCat.com, which covers a range of HR, candidate experience and job search topics; writes for Salary.com; co-manages the Oklahoma HR State Council Conference blog; and tweets as @GetHiredbyCat.
“With Cathleen’s creativity, social media experience and HR practitioner background, she is a valuable addition to the PeopleClues team,” said Wempen. “Critical to the success of our organization is a deep understanding of the expectations and challenges HR professionals face. As more companies seek to use innovative and validated behavioral assessment solutions, Cathleen can draw from her field experience to help our reseller’s customers improve talent screening and development processes and results.”
Both Wempen and Carlos are based at the company’s new Tulsa, Okla. office.
