"Organisations in ANZ are beginning to understand they need to reimagine their talent acquisition and retention practices in order to drive genuine workplace transformation, true diversity and better prepare for the future of work. I will be driving the development and expansion of pymetrics's ANZ footprint and thought leadership, revenue and best practice across the region," he said.
"I'm looking forward to working with ANZ organisations to help them better identify core employee traits such as digital potential, resilience, agility and adaptability, as well as enabling them to make hiring and internal mobility decisions which are free from inherent bias."
