Bringing the right people to the right place at the right time is part of an organizational talent management strategy that Brynne Kennedy is well versed in.

MOVE Guides in San Francisco
When it comes to solving business problems, there’s no greater motivator than personal struggle. After relocating for work several times — and dealing with many of the same challenges each and every time — in 2012 Brynne Kennedy developed a technology-based data model and software platform to move talent from one location to another easily. Once a startup, the company now has more than 130 employees working from offices around the world.
Kennedy, 33, said it’s not surprising that companies are being forced to rethink their traditional ideas on sourcing and retaining talent. MOVE Guides was built on the idea that moving valuable talent around the globe is more than just a relocation tactic. Bringing the right people to the right place at the right time is part of an organizational talent management strategy.
“This thinking has led us to deliver an average cost savings of over 20 percent to our customers, eliminating all of the complexity and hidden fees companies have complained about for years.”
