One of the few in his profession to found and grow a major business enterprise, Dave Jones has worked as an Organizational Psychologist and human resources consultant for over 30 years. He draws on that experience in Million Dollar Hire.
He was formerly the global head of human resources consulting with Aon Consulting Worldwide, one of the world’s largest HR consulting and outsourcing firms. Before that, he founded HRStrategies, recognized as one of the fastest growing consulting companies in the U.S. prior to its acquisition by Aon Corporation. Today, Jones is President of Growth Ventures Inc.
Jones has designed recruiting and hiring programs for a majority of the Fortune 100. He also has lead industry-wide initiatives, creating new approaches to candidate recruiting and assessment for industries as diverse as high-tech, utilities, insurance and financial services, pharmaceutical manufacturers, automotive producers and suppliers, hospitality and dining, consumer products, and others.
As technology solutions, social networking, and new approaches to candidate assessment have blossomed, he has contributed new product approaches and taken both investor and Board of Directors positions in the industry. As issues related to equal employment opportunity have grown in prominence, he has advised clients on compliance, and often serves as a consulting and expert witness in litigation settings.
Jones’ accomplishments have been highlighted in The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Investor’s Business Daily, Crain’s Business, and on business TV and radio.
