Brooke Baker

Talent Acquisition Lead
Talent Connection


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

My role is to help implement an applicant tracking system, lead the Customer Experience team and attract top talent to Salo. In short, improve processes, maintain a positive candidate experience and continue to hire great people.


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

I built a solid foundation in Talent Acquisition while working for a large retailer. From there, I applied those learnings to create recruiting best practices at a mid-size law firm. Both experiences have prepared me to build Talent Acquisition best practices for Salo’s unique business model.


How do you achieve business outcomes?

Through thoughtful understanding, intentional collaboration and consistent delivery.


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

I grew up the youngest of four girls in a single-parent home, so I learned early on what hard work looks like. I was also taught to always do the right thing and I truly value that in my personal and professional life.


How would your friends describe you?

Straightforward, loyal and confident.


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

  1. I have been to every continent.
  2. I got a pedicure next to Bobby Jackson.
  3. I dislike pizza


What is your favorite thing about working at Salo?

The opportunity to do meaningful work.
