In this episode of the TA Leaders podcast, we sat down with Shelia Gray. Shelia is a long-time HR veteran who currently serves as the vice president of talent acquisition at Quadient, an IT and services business based out of Bagneux, France. Previously, she’s been a global TA leader at GE Appliances, Citrix, and AMD.
Shelia talks about her journey in the human resources field, the things she loves about talent acquisition —both the fun and the challenging —and how she rose up through the ranks from HR generalist. She describes the point in her career when she knew she wanted to focus on the operations and technology behind recruiting. This was when she was working at a place called AlliedSignal (later acquired by Honeywell) as they went through their digital transformation.
Fresh off her 2021 team goal-setting, Shelia shares what she’ll be most focused on this year, and some of the types of tools she’ll be investing in, which provides valuable insight into where she sees TA going in the foreseeable future. She also talks candidly about the changes Covid-19 brought around that will likely stick, and mentions that remote work —or at least a more rapid march toward it —is one of them.
