Meet the Team: Kelly Buchanan


Position: Talent Manager 
Location: Columbus, GA
Joined ORS: June 2015
Alma Mater:  University of South Carolina 

Why did you choose ORS?  

I chose ORS for two reasons – 1) of course the people! And 2) to expand my knowledge/experience outside of the healthcare industry where I worked previously.  


What do your family members think you do for work? 

My dad calls me every day and asks me who I’ve hired that day. They also think I spend all day/every day on LinkedIn.


How would you describe a recruiter versus a talent consultant? 

In addition to typical recruiter responsibilities, we are really there to give our clients that extra level of care. Of course we want to fill positions, but we want to also be a true partner to our clients and give guidance where needed. I want our clients feeling that they have gained more from our relationships in addition to having their roles filled. 


What has been the most exciting or rewarding project you’ve taken part in while at ORS? 

It's not a specific project, but I think the most exciting thing is learning about so many different industries and positions that are out there. I love that I have the opportunity to gain experience in so many industries whether it be technology, vet pharmacy, or mortgage!


What is most challenging about your position?

My role of a Talent Manager is a bit of a balancing act – we're Talent Consultants, People Managers, and Account Managers. I enjoy each aspect of it, but it can be challenging at times making sure every part of my job is getting enough attention and energy. Being this busy certainly makes the days fly though!

Tell us about something you like to do outside of work. 

My husband & I just bought our first home, somewhat of a fixer upper, so we are currently spending a lot of time on house projects. It’s challenging, but fun! We also have a 2.5 year old Golden Retriever who is the apple of my eye.

Name something on your bucket list.

I want to travel to every continent. I’ve only covered 2 and was going to add a third one to my list this year, but COVID had other plans. I know I’ll hit them all one day though!
