When asked how his past has prepared him for this role, Rick responded, “I was made for this kind of role, and my experience has certainly prepared me for helping businesses get the outcomes they need when it comes to hiring the right people, training for best practices and performance, and transitioning exiting employees -- how to say ‘good-bye’ with dignity and grace.”
