Episode Description

My guest today is Jeremy Ames who is currently the Business & Technology Delivery Senior Manager for Accenture, a Fortune 500 company -$50.53 billion in 2021, delivering human capital management technology services to their many clients. Previously, Jeremy was the VP of HCM Services at Workforce Insight and the founder and CEO of Hive Tech HR, a company servicing the the lifecycle of human resources technology.
