Amanda “Mandy” Muro, Discusses Her Role at NEOS, Shares Some Great Advice, and Selects Her One(ish) Word to Describe #LifeatNEOS

As the Director of Recruiting and Human Resources for NEOS, tell me what it is that you for NEOS and our clients

I’m lucky enough to be in charge of finding super talented folks to be part of our team, and design and implement culture initiatives to keep them happy and productive so they never want to leave. I work with our leadership team to build a strategy around Talent Management to proactively engage top talent that will instantly bring value to our clients on day one of a project.

Who inspires you and why?

Successful, entrepreneurial women inspire me. I’ve spent a lot of time advocating for and volunteering with women and children’s groups, and when I hear about a woman succeeding to spite the circumstances she’s in or coming from, it charges me up more than anything else.

What is your Starbucks order?

I’ve toned it down over the years as I have gotten my SB obsession under control. Right now, it’s either a Venti Green Iced Tea unsweetened and light ice or a Grande Skinny Vanilla Latte with Soymilk and 2 pumps of sweetener.

If you could give one piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be and why?

“It’s all about perspective” – so many times we focus on one perspective in any circumstance when in reality there are many. Looking at something from a different perspective can give you an entirely new outlook on whatever is happening at that moment.

What is something that many people don’t know about you?

I have a mild obsession with my Nespresso machine.

What does your typical #LifeatNEOS day look like for you?

My day will typically start by opening my laptop anytime between 6:30-7:00 AM and I’m off and running from there searching for great talent, jumping on client calls, looking over budgets, addressing HR issues, and anything else that someone may need.

If you could choose one word to describe the NEOS culture, what would it be and why?

SuperSmartTalentedFamily (does that count as one word if I don’t use spaces?)
