Suzanne Lucas spent ten years on corporate Human Resources where she hired, fired, managed the numbers, and double-checked with the lawyers. In 2009 she left the corporate world to focus on helping HR everywhere be the best it can possibly be.
Suzanne writes about HR, business, how to understand the latest HR laws and court cases, and how to manage your boss. You can find her writing at Inc.com, CBS Market Watch, The New York Times, and many other publications. You can find her archives at Evil HR Lady.
Many organizations such as Engagedly, Rise Global, and Digital HR Tech recognize Suzanne as a top HR influencer. Her TEDx Talk, Forget Talent and Get to Work, has changed how people view the relationship between talent and success. As an avid supporter of DisruptHR, her talks are consistently in the top seen talks every week.
She loves to speak and train HR people all over Europe, bringing good HR to as many companies and cultures as possible.
Suzanne has a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Creative Writing from Brigham Young University and a Master’s Degree in Political Science from SUNY Stony Brook. She credits this education for teaching her logical thinking, the ability to understand government-speak, and how to write quickly and clearly.
She believes that humor is a critical part of any life and makes everything easier to understand. She’s currently living the ex-pat life in Basel, Switzerland. Regardless of her location, she focuses on US HR with a bit of global impact. Good principles, however, are universal–even if they need to be tweaked for cultural differences.
