Rachel Ernst is the Vice President of Employee Success at Reflektive, where she oversees the HR function and builds content for products and customer education.
Her passion for leadership stems from starting and participating on a Board of Directors for a women’s college organization. This work sparked her interest in a career that entails regular coaching, listening to and facilitating action on employee feedback, and working to build effective and cohesive leadership teams. Her career in HR spans compensation, learning and development, leadership coaching, people analytics and organizational design. She strives to evolve the performance management ecosystem to fulfill its ultimate goal — inspiring high performance through ongoing, real-time feedback.
Before joining Reflektive, Ernst spent more than three years at Quantcast, leading its learning and development team and people, partnerships and operations with a focus on coaching, individual growth and leadership development.
