How Danny is building a better working world

Danny is building a better working world by helping HR leadership teams to focus on people outcomes that fuel long-term human value in the workplace (workforce experiences, purpose, engagement, inclusive leadership behaviors, culture, development, skill attainment, planning and insights).

By asserting shared accountability for the grey space (everyday work experiences) with the business, Danny is helping clients redefine the boundaries of HR and trading a vertical cost center for horizontal human value creation in the business. He hopes that the seeds planted today reach the tipping point and become the new normal when his three kids join the workforce professionally, in a decade or so.
