Rick Pennington


Success Statement

I am motivated by Freedom and Helping, I work in Decisive and Spontaneous ways, and my ideal work allows for New Solutions and Variety.

Why did I join Humantelligence?

I have always known that the hiring process was broken because of the human nature and subjectivity involved. Humantelligence provides a meaningful change to a broken recruiting model and processes. I support Humantelligence because it provides unparalleled hiring tools that reduce time and money associated with identifying qualified candidates that will better fit your vacant opportunities requirements and corporate culture. I want to help you find qualified candidates more quickly, and not only save your organization time and money, but also reduce unexpected employee attrition and messy terminations.
