The past couple of years, organizations have seen especially turbulent employer challenges. In my conversations with the REDW team so far, we are driving to connect with those that have been stretched thin and to bring them lasting relief with people-centered solutions. Considering REDWâ€™s long-time track record of providing comprehensive support to human resources functions, core values, mission and culture made the decision to join this team an easy one.â€
