In today's Meet the Team post, you'll meet Jordan Oelschlager - Vault's Vice President of Sales. We had the opportunity to chat with Jordan and learn more about how he found himself at Vault, his best advice for managing a screening program, and a little about what he enjoys doing outside of work.
Hi Jordan, thanks for taking the time to chat with us. Can you tell our readers a little about yourself and your background?
In my role as the Vice President of Sales at Vault, my primary responsibility is to support and guide our sales strategies, enable revenue growth and establish lasting client connections. On a daily basis, this entails managing sales initiatives, overseeing teams dedicated to expansion, and collaborating with colleagues to address client challenges.
My professional journey commenced in corporate finance at UnitedHealth Group, and I subsequently transitioned into operations, occupying different leadership roles within the healthcare sector before joining Vault. I find immense satisfaction in sales, as it allows me the opportunity to provide solutions to customer problems and cater to their specific needs.
How did you find yourself at Vault?
After being introduced to Vault's Covid-19 solutions by a former colleague, I made the decision to join the company as the Vice President of Product Strategy, entrusted with the responsibility of the creating new solutions. Now, after 2.5 years, I am grateful for the invaluable opportunity to learn on a daily basis from our team of sales executives, who constantly provide insights into the evolving market landscape, emerging demands, and promising avenues for expansion.
What do you like most about Vault?
I love Vault's unwavering commitment to a customer-centric approach. Throughout my tenure here, I have witnessed my colleagues fearlessly tackling challenging issues, often at considerable risk, all with the ultimate goal of delivering value to our customers and setting ourselves apart from the competition.
What is your leadership philosophy?
At the core of our success lies our people. The key responsibility of a leader is to prioritize listening, empowering, and eliminating barriers for their teams, enabling them to fulfill their roles effectively. While it's easy to get absorbed in daily tasks (I often do), we must never forget the essential principle of ensuring our team feels appreciated and provided with the necessary support.
What is your best advice for someone managing an employment screening program?
In a world of ever-evolving laws and regulations, it is of utmost importance to undergo an annual program review to ensure operational compliance and foster a safe working environment for your employees. Staying proactive in this regard is crucial for adapting to changing requirements and upholding the highest standards of safety and compliance.
Ok, we’ve talked a lot about work. What do you like to do outside of work?
Outside of work I love home improvement. Whether it's revamping bathrooms, installing new lighting fixtures, or repainting a room, the satisfaction of renovating homes is amazing. Home improvement offers a break from the daily computer-centric activities of work. Additionally, I love to spend time outside hiking and volunteering at my church with my family.
