The Story Behind Everything.

Hi. I’m Jeff. I’m the Founder and Principal of ScaleHR and my career spans more than 20 years working in all facets of HR. I have seen it all; the awesome, the good, not-so-good, and the downright ugly, and have worked with an extremely diverse group of organizations from startups to multi-national corporations.

I often describe the path that I took to get where I am today to resemble that of the scariest roller coaster you have ever been on; unpredictable, constantly changing, moving a million miles an hour, and pure exhilaration. To be honest, I wouldn’t have had it any other way — it has shaped me into who I am today and allowed me to offer a unique perspective on business, HR, technology, and branding. At the end of the day, so long as I’m making progress, I’ll continue to step onto more insane roller coaster rides.

Many people I have worked with have described me as unique. I think what they’ve been trying to say is that I’ve always taken pride in doing things a little differently. Maybe it’s because of the severe hearing disability that I was born with, which forced me to adapt, persevere, be creative, show courage, keep pushing forward, and focus on what can be done versus what can’t be done.


I love HR. I love how people, business, and technology intersect. There are no silver bullets in HR. There are no blueprints. There are no foolproof formulas. Each organization is unique by virtue of its collective group of employees and the markets they serve. My deep interest has pushed me to do some really cool things like founding SocialHRCamp, advising countless HR and Recruitment tech companies on their products, speaking at major HR and Recruitment conferences throughout North America, contributing to countless blogs, including my own, and giving back to local communities.

During “normal” times, I can be found spending my time shredding it on my snowboard, playing and watching basketball and hockey, raising my three awesome boys, and watching Jersey Shore with my awesome wife.

Let’s make something happen.
