Speaker: Alison Hernandez
Position: Director, Australia | New Zealand | Singapore
Alison is a passionate, insightful thought leader on all aspects of transition and inclusion, with deep expertise in career transition, ageing workforce and gender equality. Alison is highly sought after as a conference chair, presenter and facilitator and known for her energy, humour and incisiveness.
Having begun her career in hospitality and quality management, Alison started working in the Human Resources sector in the mid-nineties, finding a natural place for her skills and strengths in the career transition (outplacement) industry. A highlight of this time was developing and leading the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games career transition program for 2500 people.
In 2004, Alison co-founded Sageco (now RiseSmart), then a niche consultancy in ageing workforce and mature-age transition. She directed a number of industry leading ageing workforce projects including the $2 M Federal Government Corporate Champions program. Having led Sageco for 13 years, achieving year-on-year growth and expanding the Sageco services to include career and executive transition, Alison was instrumental in Sageco being acquired by Randstad Australia in early 2017. She is now the Director for RiseSmart, wholly owned by Randstad, reporting to the APAC CEO, Frank Ribuot.
In 2017, Alison was invited by the AARP to participate as a subject matter expert in a global ageing workforce think tank at the OECD Forum ‘Bridging the Divide’ held in Paris. The same year Alison was a keynote speaker at The Ageing Well Revolution Conference spear-headed by the Economic Development Board of South Australia.
Alison has a teenage daughter and lives in Northern NSW near Lennox Head, role modelling flexible work as a senior leader, commuting to and from RiseSmart offices across Australia, NZ and Singapore.
