PeopleAdmin Hosts PDC Staff Members

In Mid-August, Andrea Ellis, Director of Recruitment and Organizational Development, and John Champlin, Manager of Recruitment and Organizational Development, traveled to the headquarters of PeopleAdmin, a Talent Management solutions company specially focused on Higher Education.  The trip to Austin, Texas was organized by Tommy Siragusa, Director of Marketing for PeopleAdmin, to align with their extremely popular “Hear it From a Peer!” Webinar series.  This series invites thought leaders from different areas of Human Resources in Higher Education to share their best practices and insights over an hour-long webcast.

After reading about the Professional and Organizational Development Conference hosted by The Professional Development Center at Wake Forest, Mr. Siragusa asked if Andrea and John would be interested in participating in one of the webinars.  The topic would be on Organizational Development in Higher Education and would feature Wake Forest University, Texas A&M University, and Gonzaga University.  The Wake Forest representatives were asked to speak on the broad state of Organizational Development across all Higher Educational Institutions and, more specifically, programs and offerings at Wake Forest.  In total, over 150 colleagues logged in and participated in the webinar broadcast.

During their whirlwind 36 hour visit, John and Andrea met with different PeopleAdmin teams to offer insight into the “industry” and suggestions for product development.  The questions prepared by the PeopleAdmin staff made it clear that they were focused on creating innovative, functional solutions that focused on providing a quality end-user experience.

This trip and webinar provided an opportunity to showcase the work that is being done by, and through, the Professional Development Center at Wake Forest University.  The PDC staff is committed to being thought leaders and will constantly look for ways to engage colleagues in opportunities to share best practices.

PeopleAdmin visit

” I was thoroughly impressed by the enthusiasm, engagement, and the thought provoking questions from the team members to ensure PeopleAdmin products are meeting the needs of its clients.

The webcast exceeded our expectations by providing the opportunity for over 100 colleagues to come together to share best practices.  This is extremely valuable, especially for the organizational development facet of HR, due to it being relatively new in the higher education”
~Andrea Ellis, Director of Recruitment and Organizational Development
