Show Notes

“Are we learning as fast as the business is changing?”
- Ken Finneran

Do you see yourself as a MULTIPLIER?  As a Talent leader, you should.  Consider the impact your work has on all the people in your organization.  It’s why I produce this podcast week in and week out - to provide you with learning and inspiration so that you can be the best multiplier possible - lifting people up and helping them live into their potential!    Today’s guest gussies up the term a little and shares with us his view of all people in an organization being “force multipliers” without whom major growth and achievements simply would not happen.

My guest is Ken Finneran, who is VP of HR at eMed Digital Healthcare, a leading digital healthtech company on a mission to democratize healthcare. 

Ken is a strategic HR and talent executive, thought leader, and community builder. Prior to joining eMed, he served as VP, Global HR at Kaseya and Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) at National Beverage Corp. (Nasdaq: FIZZ), driving their respective hyper-growth talent & HR strategies as both organizations developed into multi-billion dollar enterprises (400%+ growth at each company).  He is also a proud father of two and champion for the HR function.   

In this episode of Talent Management Truths, you’ll discover:

  • A philosophy around how HR must deliver at the pace of business
  • An example of rapidly adjusting to big changes in your team size
  • Insights into the importance of people as a force multiplier in an organization that has experienced 500% growth


Are you a Talent leader who is longing for a safe place to bounce ideas off of? In addition to my group programs I work privately with a select few clients as their Talent Management Thought Partner. I will help you, over the next 90 days, create the space, the intention and the strategy to implement an initiative that is CRITICAL to your team. Let’s chat and see if there’s a fit.
