This leader will engage with global service owners to own the resolution and remediation of escalated issues while being persistent and dogged in the pursuit of true root cause analysis.

7. Identify trends and themes in the data to see where we have larger issues that need to be addressed; meet with service owners to discuss the data and determine how to move forward with next steps
8. Lead a team of Program Managers and HR Specialists who will own the full lifecycle of escalations as they come into HRS and will work closely and collaboratively with service teams and outside stakeholders to successfully resolve each issue as it arises
