Women of Influence Virtual Series: Jamie Hoobanoff, Founder, The Leadership Agency
Jamie Hoobanoff is a highly sought after professional recruiter, Forbes Human Resources Council Member, and 2019 Winner of both the Canadian SME Best Professional Services and HR Canada’s Best Service Provider Awards. Recognized as one of our country’s leading HR industry experts, Jamie’s worked with North America’s most fascinating companies, interviewed over 10,000 candidates and placed an estimated 3,000 top tier leaders in the market (est. $175 Million in annual salaries). Over the last 15 years she’s guided clients through unprecedented circumstances, including the devastating economic downturn of 2008.
Three years ago Jamie ventured out on her own to found The Leadership Agency, a one-stop-shop for startup recruitment with a compelling mission: to help fast-growth startups build the most impressive companies of our generation by finding and hiring best-in-class talent. When the Covid Crisis hit, a foremost concern for many entrepreneurs was HR. Jamie responded by offering free personal support consultations to all her clients – they were booked instantly. Speaking to women across the country, the same questions and concerns kept emerging:
Guidance on how to move business operations remote
Advice on creating off-site culture and driving team morale
How to restructure workforce if needed and best practices for employee layoff’s
Approaching business development in an uncertain climate with empathy while keeping a business mindset
It was obvious that now, more than ever, information sharing and community is to the benefit of all. On April 15, Jamie will sit down live with WOI to weigh in on what entrepreneurs are asking, and what they — and you — need to know.
