Tawanda Johnson, Founder

Tawanda Johnson founded RKL Resources in January 2013 following a very successful tenure as a member of the senior management team of a large global health care organization.

Throughout her career, Tawanda has worked in every functional area of human resources including recruiting, employee relations, compensation, benefits, training and HRIS. After leading a large, complex project for her previous employer that encompassed hiring more than 10,000 new employees and opening six new locations, she determined that the time was right to focus on starting her own business.

“I have three amazing children who keep me on the go by transporting them to soccer, lacrosse, and volleyball games/practices, an awesome fur baby (a 10-year-old boxer named Tiger) This business would not exist without the support of my amazing, funny, and creative husband”.

I started this business for two reasons, 1) have greater flexibility and control over my personal life and work balance and 2) to provide a streamlined way to help organizations of all sizes with their most valuable asset- it’s people. I believed the ability to have a company like RKL Resources provide recruiting, training, and HR consulting helps streamline the way our customers do business. If we are handling their recruiting needs then we are familiar with their turnover/retention which means we can develop a customized training plan to help improve retention.
