Role to focus on acquiring and developing talent to support continued growth
CARY, NC, May 10, 2017 – Relias Learning, a trusted partner in online analytics, assessments, and learning for the healthcare market, today announced the promotion of Tina Krebs to Vice President, People and Organizational Development. Krebs had previously been Director of Strategic Programs at Relias, overseeing the integrations of several recent acquisitions.
“Since joining Relias, Tina has epitomized the ‘get-it-done’ spirit we strive for in the company. Her leadership working through acquisitions, and her intellect and people skills have won accolades from employees,” said Jim Triandiflou, CEO of Relias. “As a growth company, hiring and developing employees is critical. Tina’s passion for people development is inspiring. Beyond HR, Tina will continue to help guide the company as a member of our Executive Leadership Team.”
Krebs joined Relias in August of 2016 following fourteen years at Raleigh-based management consulting firm, ScottMadden, the last four as a Partner. At ScottMadden she led the HR Consulting Practice and will utilize that experience to help shape strategic hiring and developmental paths for Relias employees.
Krebs will be responsible for recruiting, learning and development, benefits, employee relations, and overall employee engagement. She will also be a critical contributor to shaping the organization to scale as Relias continues its rapid growth. Part of this growth is Relias’ evolution from primarily online learning to a multi-solution platform that also includes healthcare assessments and analytics. A key element to achieving this goal is the sourcing and development of new expertise, which will come through both hiring and acquisitions.
In addition, Krebs will seek to increase engagement and productivity amongst employees through ongoing programs designed to develop leaders that manage and grow their Relias team members. She will also look to continue the Relias philosophy for promoting internally to maintain the strong corporate culture and ensure the company fills critical roles in a timely fashion around the world.
“I was drawn to this opportunity because of the strategic, client-focused approach the role demands,” said Krebs. “The benefits of finding and developing the right talent can have a massive impact on an organization, whether that’s Relias or one of our healthcare industry clients.”
Relias has added nearly 50 employees to their Cary, NC headquarters in the first quarter of 2017 and currently employs almost 600 employees across offices in the U.S., China, Germany and the UK.
