MESSAGE FROM BILL KIEFFER
Thank you for your interest in Kieffer & Associates.
I am a former U.S. Army officer with over a decade of active duty service. I am also a human resource and talent management executive with over two decades of senior leadership experience in large, complex, global companies.
My practical, thoughtful, results-focused approach has helped individuals and organizations in a variety of industries optimize their talent capability and achieve their objectives.
Throughout my career I have coached and advised military veterans to successfully transition from their military career to the civilian, commercial work world. Having been that veteran who made the transition, I am passionate about helping other veterans succeed.
The breadth and depth of my experience uniquely enables me to advise veterans, non-veterans, teams, and organizations to successfully navigate change, recognize the realities of the circumstance, and develop/execute plans that improve performance and achieve planned objectives.
I look forward to working with you to create talent capability that enables individual and organizational success.

MILITARY VETERAN CAREER TRANSITION
Military veterans bring many much-needed, value-adding capabilities to the civilian, commercial work world.
Organizations and hiring managers seek people that can do the work that needs to be done and that fit with the organization’s culture.
Leveraging my extensive experience both as a veteran and a human resource and talent management executive, I go beyond the basics to help individual veterans and organizations optimize capability and fit.

STRATEGIC TALENT MANAGEMENT
Having the right talent, ready for the right jobs, at the right time, will always be a critical concern for business leaders.
Addressing this concern starts with understanding your business strategy and the state of your talent capability to achieve it. For each aspect, function, or component of your business do you have enough of the right talent, with the right capability to do the work your strategy requires? What are your plans to close any gaps? What are you doing to prepare a pipeline for the future?

INVESTING IN THE MIDDLE
In September 2017, I had the honor of speaking at TEDxToledo, presenting "Investing in the Middle." During this presentation, I shared my thoughts, observations and experiences regarding leadership, life, and work in the 'middle' of organizations.
After reading his posts, it was readily apparent at the HR professional excellence that Bill exudes on a daily basis. After speaking with him and getting some true mentoring from him as I navigate my HR path, Bill demonstrates a true knowledge on what it takes for the military veteran to transition into the civilian workforce. His ability to grow an employer's understanding on hiring AND retaining veterans is quite remarkable. As HR leaders sometimes fall prey to the pigeon hole effect, Bill is quite experienced and has a proven track record across several industries and has the ability to not only conceptualize effective plans---he has the ability to lead teams into action achieving real results with the plans. On top of all of this, he does it with customer service in mind while fostering long-term relationships to keep the results coming. Do yourself a favor---either for yourself or your organization---when searching for the leader that can actually deliver those HR measurable KPIs, you owe it to your team to consult with Bill for solutions.
