September 22, 2014 – Executive search firm Stanton Chase International has launched a new global human resources specialty practice. Daniel Casteel, managing director in Nashville, will head the new practice. Prior to joining Stanton Chase, Mr. Castell headed the HR function for an $11 billion global enterprise undergoing explosive growth. “Long gone are the days when HR executives serve as ‘personnel police’ and the human resources department’s mission was to create policies and perform the transactional aspects of the employment relationship,” said Mr. Casteel. “Today, in the competitive landscape of the global economy and the rapidly changing demographics of the workforce, organizations are relying on human resources and the interdisciplinary experts therein to provide innovation in the employment value proposition that attract, develop and retain a skilled and motivated workforce.” Stanton Chase has 70 offices in 46 countries, offering services in Asia/Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Latin America and North America.
