Lars Schmidt

I’m a fierce HR advocate with a strong track record in building, developing, and leading progressive teams. I’m a change catalyst who believes strongly in blending best practices, technology, and relationships to develop and drive talent initiatives with limited resources; leveraging innovative recruiting techniques and building proactive and sustainable global talent programs.

My approach to talent acquisition is deeply rooted in relationship-based embedded recruiting; empowering recruiters to align themselves with the clients they support. I believe when recruiting is approached as a transaction, it will fail.
