7: How Head of Global TA, TJ Kreuziger, Built a Multi-Faceted HR Career at 3M

April 20th, 2021

In this episode of the TA Leaders podcast, we sat down with TJ Kreuziger, a 20-year veteran of and currently Head of Global Talent Acquisition and Contingent Workforce Solutions at 3M. He shares a little bit about his career path, the company’s biggest TA priorities for the coming years, and how he thinks the discipline will evolve in the future.

TJ didn’t set out to be a recruiter. He walks us through how he got his start at 3M and the experiences he had that eventually led to a talent acquisition role — including what he calls the best career development experience of his life.

One of the things that keeps him interested in the world of recruiting is the combination of marketing/sales and back-office processes. But that also creates challenges, he reminds us, as he explores the balance between automation and personal connection. Other goals he’s working toward at 3M include improving workforce and leadership diversity as well as increasing process consistency across the globe.

We wrap the episode with TJ’s advice to future talent acquisition professionals. Even seasoned TAs won’t want to miss it!
