As the new academic year gets underway in Loudoun County, Virginia, around 100 posters festoon the walls of rooms where teachers and staffers gather. “We spread good vibes @ Loudoun County Public Schools,” the posters declare on an abstract background that reminds of Peter Max.

As senior vice president of human resources at Tenerity, she’s been helping over 1,000 employees in more than a dozen countries adjust to the post-pandemic “new normal.” “I don’t think the days of people going to an office 9-to-5, Monday to Friday, are ever going to return,” Doonan […]

Est. reading time: 5 mins

When it comes to addressing the prevailing shortage of doctors and nurses, Lorinda Lee likes to think systemically.

As chief human resources officer […]
