Cielo Announces Change and Innovation Practice

BROOKFIELD, WI (November 12, 2014) – Cielo, the world’s leading global talent acquisition and management provider, today announced the formal creation of its Change and Innovation Practice, expanding the company’s strategic human resource (HR) consulting services to focus on business and talent transformation.

The Change and Innovation Practice, led by recognized industry innovator, Sue Brooks, takes a fresh approach to traditional consulting by moving away from being an advisory service at premium rates, and instead being outcome-focused and delivering demonstrable business value to clients. Offered both in conjunction with and stand-alone from Cielo’s core Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) services, the Change and Innovation Practice focuses on five key areas:

  • Talent Strategy & Workforce Planning
  • Diversity & Inclusion
  • Employer Branding
  • Workforce Analytics
  • Leadership & Talent Programs

With global markets recovering, business leaders are changing their focus from cost to growth. This change in strategy comes with the reality that long-term growth is impossible without the sustainable advantage of superior talent.

“It’s all about driving value through people, transformation and growth,” said Brooks, Cielo's Chief Innovation Officer. “HR Leaders are seeking the data, strategic frameworks and dedicated expertise to deliver against this transformation journey. Cielo’s Change and Innovation Practice architects solutions that unlock sustainable business performance through stronger leaders, better global supply chains and quantifiable talent strategies that help organizations rise above.”

According to Cielo’s CEO, Sue Marks, Brooks was chosen to lead this strategic business unit because of her constant focus on the future and deep understanding of how to turn today’s talent challenges into tomorrow’s business advantages. “Sue is able to see around corners and has the passion and entrepreneurial drive to help organizations achieve their stretch goals under any circumstances,” said Marks. “Grounded in results-driven execution by her team of experts, I look forward to seeing our partnerships benefit and blossom from this fresh approach to HR consulting.”
