How Joern is building a better working world

“I am building a better working world through my focus on products and technology and operational excellence in the context of long-term enterprise growth. I advise my clients to reduce ‘waste’ in all aspects of business. This ranges from verifying the effective recall of products by my clients to protecting their consumers from harm; and from ESG-driven due diligence in alignment with operational excellence to encouraging companies to maximize their results with minimal impact to the environment.”
