As an award-winning human resource leader Karen Saunders was known for her management expertise and her strong desire to make a positive impact on others’ lives.
Congratulations to Karen, who will now use those skills as a franchisee for Express Employment Professionals, as owner of the new Bloomfield, NJ office!
The Perfect Fit for a Talent Management Specialist
Karen has more than 25 years experience in global human resources management, including roles in recruiting, talent management, organizational development, and executive coaching. She has worked in the pharmaceutical, logistics, and telecommunications industries.
“Karen’s rich HR experience makes her a perfect fit for the staffing industry,” said Brook Wise, Express Regional Franchising Director. “She wants this next step in her career to have meaning, and the Express franchise model makes that possible. She’ll not only be helping businesses in the Morris County area find the talent they need, Karen will be helping area individuals find the career opportunities they seek.”
Karen has a master’s degree in organizational psychology from Columbia University Teachers College and a bachelor of science degree in sociology from Western Michigan University.
The Right Place for Giving Back To the Community
Karen’s heart for helping others dovetails with the Express culture of caring. She has served the community as a board member/volunteer for these organizations:
• Big Brothers/Big Sisters
• Family Institute
• Beverly Bootstraps Food Bank
• Delta Sigma Theta Service Sorority
“Owning her own business appeals to Karen because she wants to control her own destiny,” Brook said. “Express provides that opportunity with the back office support that our franchisees value. Karen is a high-achiever, and we see a successful road ahead for her Bloomfield office.”
