We asked our Chief Science Officer, Paula Baetu, a few questions so you can get to know her better.
What is the biggest highlight of your working life?
I value learning, so starting my own business and following the road less travelled is my biggest highlight, as I have learned the most through this experience. However, I know there are many more career highlights to come, and I am looking forward to those.
What does great talent management mean to you?
Great talent management is a beginning to end process. It is the full scope of processes to attract, develop, motivate and retain high-performing talent, not a pick and mix. Great talent management ensures all parts of the talent machine are well taken care of with the goal of thriving, engaged and effective talent within the organization.
Who has inspired you most in your career?
My parents played a really big role in my career, but in different ways. My father has always challenged I have been inspired by many people in different ways and for different reasons. My parents are one of my role models as they have run their own successful business since I was born. However, I wouldn’t have gotten to where I am now without the support and guidance of my mentors and supporters along the way.
What energizes you most about your work?
I love working with people and the unique energy each person brings into a room. I am highly energized by developing others either through running workshops, coaching or mentoring.
How do you relax outside work?
I enjoy being social, a range of strength-based exercises (from weight lifting to callisthenics), photography, good food and travel.
What do you like most about working at TalentPredix™?
TalentPredix™ is not just a company I work for; it is a dream I have helped build from the ground up. What I love about where we are right now is the possibilities and potential to grow TalentPredix™ into more than a business, into something that truly helps people and organizations thrive.
