Leigh Borgeson

Talent Connection Specialist
Talent Connection

How would you describe your role, purpose or the outcomes you drive?

My role is primarily focused on sourcing. I work closely with Salo business leaders to ensure the right talent is available at the right time to meet Salo’s business goals (which includes the goals of consultants and clients).

How has your previous work experience prepared you for your role with Salo?

Prior to my role as the Talent Connection Specialist, I was the HR Intern at Salo. The internship not only gave me insight on the basics of human resources (from a superb team I might add), but it also allowed me to acclimate to Salo’s unique culture and better understand the industry.

How do you achieve business outcomes?

I achieve business outcomes by understanding the current process, connecting with the right people to solve a problem, driving for a more efficient process and delivering exceptional outcomes.

What impact did your upbringing have on the way you approach your work and life?

I grew up in the most caring, loving and supportive environment where family always came first. My parents instilled in me a passion to drive for results paired with humility. I believe there is no person from which I cannot learn something. This is something that applies to my life and extends into my work on a daily basis.

How would your friends describe you?

Aside from the fact that I dislike doing my dishes, my friends have said that I am always thinking of others and energizing others with my enthusiasm and sarcasm.

List three interesting things about you, but only one of them needs be true.

I was a basketball captain at Osseo Senior High School and we placed 2nd in state my senior year. I’ve essentially eaten the same lunch every single day for two years. I’m completely comfortable killing spiders in my apartment.

What is your favorite thing about working at Salo?

I don’t think it’s possible to pick one favorite thing, but one of them is the drive at Salo. There is never a day when I walk into the office and everyone isn’t working hard to connect people and solve business problems, even on Friday afternoons.
