BOSTON, Mass. February 21, 2012 –SourceRight Solutions, a Randstad company, today announced that Karen Turner, an accomplished business innovator with more than a decade of talent acquisition and workforce management experience, has been appointed vice president of product development and strategy. In her role, Turner will be responsible for overseeing product development and strategy, product development lifecycles and partner development.
The newly designated product development and strategy group will provide a strategic function for guiding the innovation that has always been central to the company’s processes, but has traditionally been managed within lines of business. An integrated and centralized approach to development marks the continuation of the integrated innovation process—one that has led SourceRight to become a leader in blended workforce solutions spanning both RPO and MSP capabilities.
Turner has more than fifteen years of broad entrepreneurial and management experience in the industry. Prior to her current role, she was vice president of Strategic Talent Optimization, SourceRight’s Blended Workforce solution encompassing both recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) for traditional FTE talent and managed services provider (MSP) solutions for managing contingent and free-agent talent. Earlier, she was responsible for designing, creating, delivering and managing the company’s contingent workforce services (CWS) line of business.
Prior to joining the company in 2006, Turner spent several years in the recruiting and staffing industry, holding various senior management positions in the fields of sales, marketing and strategic solutions. Turner is active in such organizations as HROA, SHRM and SIA, and she is considered to be an industry expert in talent acquisition and workforce management.
“Innovation has always been integral to our approach for delivering value to clients,” said SourceRight vice president of corporate development, Kelly Cartwright. “With her deep talent acquisition solutions background, Karen provides the level of expertise and experience needed to continue on our path of growth and success by driving innovation across our company.”
“With global operations, a blended workforce capability, and a focus on innovation, SourceRight and Randstad are uniquely positioned to meet the evolving needs of companies as they compete for talent in a complex, global business environment," commented Turner. “Through our product development function, I look forward to guiding a focused process that applies the tremendous knowledge and experience of SourceRight and Randstad to drive continued value for our clients and advance our leadership in the marketplace.”
