RiseSmart Launches HR Advice Service, “Ask An Expert”

July 2, 2012

RiseSmart, the leader in next-generation outplacement solutions, announced today the launch of its HR advice service, “Ask An Expert,” through which HR professionals can submit questions about downsizing, workforce reductions, unemployment and other HR issues to thought leaders in the industry.

The first Expert is one of the foremost thought leaders in the field of human resources, China Gorman, chief executive officer of the CMG Group. A former chief operating officer of SHRM, Gorman has held strategic leadership roles in human capital management for more than 25 years. She is also an accomplished executive with significant experience in career transition services. Prior to joining SHRM in 2007, Gorman had tenures as president at two of the largest career transition consultancies: Lee Hecht Harrison -- where she also served as chief operating officer -- and DBM North America.

“China’s expertise is sought after by business and HR professionals on a recurring basis, as she travels extensively around the world to speak with business, professional, corporate and academic groups,” said Sanjay Sathe, founder and CEO of RiseSmart. “Through this program, we’re offering her expertise to the public at no cost. It’s a quick and easy way for HR professionals, hiring managers and anyone interested in learning more about HR to seek advice on topics that matter most to them.”

Gorman said, “HR is my passion and I’m excited to guide professionals in the industry by providing data- and experience-driven answers to their questions. It’s important for hiring managers, HR directors and other HR executives to stay informed about new trends in talent management. This program provides a new way to answer important questions and provide HR news and updates.”
