Fitness is a lifestyle not a diet. – Bryan Wempen
Bryan wanted to solve a problem and do something that others haven’t done before. People can be engaged in what they’re doing and it attracts other talents. This is why having people in the right roles is so important. Pride and ego don’t pay the bills. Success Habit: Meditate 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes at night.
Bryan’s One Idea
Assessment, Research and Development (ARD) has been in business for 9 months now. It was born, as Bryan put it, from being in the industry for a long time. He’s been in the human capital space for 20 years and have been in the measurement side of the human capital since 2001.
ARD helps companies screen and select things to have people in better roles within their company. They also help companies around the globe. Their mobile assessment basically improves the candidate experience and the customer experience of the hiring process in 5 minutes on a smart phone.
