Kristen is a senior consultant with the McQuaig Institute. Kristen uses the assessment tools that McQuaig offers to help companies make better hiring decisions, help them drive employee engagement, decrease turnover  – basically, all of the things that almost every HR person has on their priority do list almost every single year.
