Amanda oversees talent development at IMEC. Working with staff and leadership, she helps identify capability gaps and takes a collaborative approach to creating Individual Development Plans designed to strengthen both individual and team performance. In addition to talent development, Amanda leads the efforts of workforce planning, talent acquisition, onboarding, performance management, succession planning, reward and recognition, and engagement and retention.  


In this episode, we discuss balancing learning and development with all of the other responsibilities that come with HR positions, with Amanda Hawley. Here are three takeaways from this week’s episode:

  • L&D is a team effort, it’s not just HR’s job
  • Collaboration and individualization are keys to success
  • You can find time for things that are a priority
