Meet Meredith Morales, Team Lead, Segment Strategies
By Nicole Nespeca-Manager, Global Talent Acquisition
It’s only been six months since Meredith Morales joined the Aon Hewitt Recruiting Process Outsourcing team supporting the BMO Harris Bank and BMO Financial Group account in February 2014, but she’s already making a difference. She manages a team of campus and diversity recruiters in both Canada and the United States.
I will take credit for recruiting her, and I would like to think that my amazing personality and powers of persuasion made her want to join us. But Meredith really chose to join us because she believes Aon is a leader in the industry and Aon Hewitt has always been a premier employer of choice for top-notch service delivery. The opportunity to be part of the Aon Hewitt team was important to Meredith because of its strong reputation for empowering results.
Meredith has the credentials—a master’s in Public Policy from Northwestern University and a Professional Human Resources (PHR) certification from the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM)—but it is her passion for people and diversity that prompted her to start connecting candidates to their ideal careers, which helps them realize their goals.
“Diversity is the mix behind recruitment,” says Meredith. “Everyone offers a facet of diversity, and incorporating a broad and diverse workforce contributes to the organization’s ability to drive results and both connect to and reflect its consumer base.”
What else about the firm is important to Meredith? Aon’s focus on empowering results illustrates how important we believe it is to add value to the clients we serve. Aon offers great flexibility and autonomy to grow, and the firm’s paradigm of leadership accessibility drives career growth and colleague engagement.
We all know that enjoying life outside of the office is critical to an individual’s overall outlook and success in life. Fortunately, Meredith has that covered, too. She has a daughter whom she adores and who makes her laugh. She is also a self-described “roller coaster fanatic.”
With her positive attitude and friendly personality, I don’t doubt that Meredith will be successful in the roller coaster that is life. We are thrilled to have her expertise in diversity, recruiting, and leadership as part of our team here at Aon.
