Identifying High Potential Talent

Jody O'Neil
Manufacturers Alliance Podcast Ep. #50

In today’s job climate, we need people who can lead teams, grow businesses, and become next-generation company leaders. Consequently, we have to find the people who aspire to grow themselves develop teams and have a vision on how to do it. If you don’t identify these people your prospects for future growth will be limited, leaving you, your customers, even your own team members wondering how you’ll be successful in the future.

Today’s guest, Jody O’Neil, is a results-driven, business and customer-focused Human Resources professional. She is effective in operating in a changing environment while maximizing results. Jody holds a Master’s of Business Administration from the University of Minnesota. She also holds several professional certifications in the HR field, the SPHR, SHRM-SCP and the Plan Sponsor Professional for retirement plans. In her spare time, she spends time with her family (including 4 grand kiddos) and on the lake with her “Pontoon Neighbors”, and also giving back by holding a seat on the board of directors for a local philanthropic women’s organization called GIVING WoMN here in the Twin Cities.

Jody joined the Bernard Group in June 2020 as their VP of Human Resources. She provides overall Human Resources leadership to the organization. She is a member of the Senior Management team and is responsible for driving human resources and talent management business practices and strategies that anticipate and support the changing needs of the organization and achievement of TBG’s financial and operational objectives.
