Regarding Tom Palladino's Work

"During my MBA program, Thomas Palladino taught me HR Analytics. I also had an opportunity to work together with Tom and his team on an HR Analytics project (for a large restaurant chain) where we successfully identified the key drivers that help in improving employee productivity and also successfully developed a tool that enhanced the existing recruitment process. Tom's leadership skills, expertise and guidance were instrumental in the tremendous success of that project".
