Ruth is skilled in the topics of human resources and talent, including people analytics, employee journeys, Next-Gen HR models, leadership and talent, culture and behavior, engagement, strategic organization design, support function operating models, and large-scale change. She helped found BCG's Leadership & Talent Enablement Center, and her work in talent assessments pioneered some of BCG's early approaches to strategic talent gap analysis and development.
Prior to joining BCG Ruth worked at Goldman Sachs.
