Emmanuel has spent the last decade in corporate advisory, with experience spanning institutional sales and trading, leveraged finance and investment banking. Emmanuel's clients ranged from mid-market domestic manufacturers to a global real estate and infrastructure conglomerate with over $250Bn in assets under management. This gave him a unique perspective on how organizations of different sizes make resource allocation decisions. Despite their difference in size, when it came to human resource decisions their positions on retention were similar.
What he quickly realized is that while executives know that employees are the most important assets they also understand that there is an optimal level of turnover that benefits the firm, by weeding out low performers and those who do not fit the culture. This is what truly drives retention strategy and what served as inspiration for Alitheia's unique value-focused retention and recruitment platform.
