Please join the Bell Oaks team in congratulating Lauren Comer on completing her master’s degree! After fulfilling the rigorous degree requirements, she has received her Master of Education in Human Resources and Organizational Development from the University of Georgia.
“My motivation for earning this degree was both personal and professional,” says Lauren. “After completing my undergraduate degree in communication I knew there was still something missing in terms of my education. When I began the program I had a long-term goal of serving organizations as an executive recruiter. And as I built experience in the field, it was important for me to know I had real mastery of all the different elements that contribute to performing at the highest level in order to bring maximum benefit to clients.”
With several years of professional experience under her belt, Lauren has an even greater appreciation of the benefits of the program. She explains, “The program at UGA focuses on consulting, talent management, change management, business process and analysis, and customized training. The curriculum helped me develop skills that directly impact my effectiveness as a recruiter and consultant.”
Bell Oaks partner Matt Tovrog has witnessed Lauren’s growth and effort as she pursued the advanced degree. “Lauren has worked incredibly hard to advance her knowledge and skill set,” he reports. “It’s been very impressive to watch her devote such talent and commitment to her professional performance and simultaneously dive deeply into her studies, constantly building on her knowledge to offer ever-increasing value to clients. Our team is very proud of Lauren. It’s this kind of above and beyond effort and passion that creates the exceptional strength clients appreciate in Bell Oaks consultants.”
Way to go, Lauren!
