Eric Gnospelius

Chief People Officer

I come to the firm with more than 20 years of experience in spearheading initiatives across organizational development, learning and development, performance management, compensation, talent acquisition, and succession planning. My track record includes successfully leading strategic and corporate development programs for multiple organizations.

Over the course of my career, I have developed quality tools and systems to support and enhance organizational health. I established competency models for several firms, making expectations and career paths clearer. I have redesigned campus recruiting strategies that yielded the largest intern class in the history of the firm and +90% offer acceptance rate. I devised a workforce planning model to assess current talent and predict future hiring needs by level — allowing headcount and hiring forecasts based on forward-looking indicators. I also rolled-out a 360-degree feedback program for leadership, provided coaching to 100+ leaders, and reimagined performance management and incentive systems (merit increases and bonuses) to drive higher levels of individual performance.

I believe building positive employee experiences provides more engaged employees, higher retention, and better service for clients.
