An announcement from Stan C. Kimer, President, Total Engagement Consulting by Kimer
Following my March, 2014 trip to Mexico, I am pleased to announce that I have added an “associate consultant on call” to the Total Engagement Consulting team: Elsa Maria Jimenez-Salgado. Ms. Jimenez, a Mexican native now living in Raleigh, North Carolina, is bilingual Spanish and English. Ms. Jimenez completed her law degree from the Universidad Iberoamericana in Leon, Mexico in 2007, graduating at the top of her class. She is a licensed attorney in Mexico, and is now completing an Executive Graduate Certification in Business and Administration with a concentration in Human Resource Management in the United States, with an expected graduation date of June this year.
Ms. Jimenez has eight years of business experience including:
• Three years of legal positions in Mexico
• Four years as Documentation Administrator, Community Affairs Manager, and Assistant to the General Counsel at the Mexican Consulate in Raleigh, NC.
• One year as an office manager for a staffing consulting firm
• An entrepreneur running her own translation business
In her work with Total Engagement Consultant, Ms. Jimenez will assist with business development in Mexico, and will be assigned as an associate consultant on all engagements with Mexican clients. With her experience in human resource areas and strong language skills, Ms. Jimenez will handle client interviews, accurate translation of all consulting material, and training sessions and presentations which need to occur in Spanish.
As the President and Founder of Total Engagement Consulting, I am enthusiastic about the potential growth of my services in Mexico. During my March trip, I met with three large potential clients in three different industries as well as with the executive president of Mexico’s largest Human Resources Association. In all my meetings, I was very impressed at how well Mexican HR executives and leaders understand the importance of employee skills development and engagement in robust career management. There is an understanding that corporate HR leaders must take the lead and deliver innovative and meaningful talent development programs for the Mexican economy to globally compete with India, China and the USA.
In addition to being prime and fertile ground for the Total Engagement Career Mapping offering for talent engagement and development, there is also a growing awareness for the need for robust workplace diversity strategy and implementation. To fully compete at the global level, leading Mexican companies understand that all segments of the population; men, women, indigenous people, and LGBT need to be fully integrated and empowered in their workplaces. Total Engagement Consulting is also ready to assist Mexican clients with its deep diversity expertise.
