Global People & Organization Partner. Digital AI. Employee Engagement Science. Synthesized
Hi, I’m Vinay. As a People and Organization Business Transformation Partner, Digital AI Solutions Advisor, and Employee Engagement (EX) Scientist, I fuel employee performance and engagement through inclusive organizational structures, cultures, and learning. Exceptional organizational transformation happens by integrating policy, technology, processes, and program functions while eliminating costly and operational inefficiencies.
Understanding emerging trends in People and Organization strategy in hard! I’ve been synthesizing research in employee behavior and sentiment with business and economics and applying that while working with HR and talent technologies and managing portfolios of enterprise clients for over 15 years. I love working with C-suite clients and supporting my Salesforce to deliver solutions that amaze!
Designing Solutions for Clients with a Passion while Analyzing The World’s Business Cultures and Structures
Over my multi-faceted people career, I gained many capabilities across the spectrum of human capital disciplines, by performing key functional strategy roles and driving processes and procedures within technology.
I also embraced continuous upskilling as a practice early, bucking the trend that education isn’t “as important” as work. My view (as were my mentors over years) is that for positions which require management and progressive advancement of strategic goals, both are equally critical.
So, I did both through the ebbs and flows of several economic growth periods & now three global recessions; while analyzing labor, social & cultural economics & crafting next gen people strategy change.
As a result, today I am a future of work talent strategy architect who is passionate about designing cutting-edge solutions and guiding senior leaders on integrative programs that deliver the right experience for a purpose-seeking workforce.

As a quota breaking business developer and strategy advisor, I gained expertise and grew practices in key trending sectors; working in KM systems and working directly with executive decision makers.
It’s one thing to get leads handed to you to work with clients, it’s another thing to gain their respect and want to work with you. Leaders want to work with thought leaders who have SME expertise.
