Vered Levant

VIMY HR was founded when Vered Levant, a senior Human Resource professional with experience in a variety of industries including non-profit, government, oil & gas, utilities, construction, financial services and health & wellness, joined a small start up to formalize their operations and expand their local footprint. After just a couple of months of involvement and double revenues, she realized the benefits even the smallest of businesses could achieve from the implementation of practical HR strategies. The challenges facing small businesses in obtaining cost effective HR solutions was astounding. She founded VIMY HR to service small to medium sized organizations by providing a tailored, cost effective approach to the recruitment and engagement of talent.

In the last decade Vered has supported Executives, Managers and Employees in all aspects of HR including, but not limited to:

  • recruitment
  • performance management
  • learning and development
  • change management
  • succession planning and,
  • policy development.

Her passion is in providing her clients top notch service and watching companies succeed and profit because of sound HR decisions and programming.

In her downtime Vered enjoys spending time with her 2 children, cross country skiing, hiking, reading, listening to Podcasts, attending local theatre, travelling, and exploring new restaurants in the city.
